Is there a way to enter time for a resource who is out of office? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using MS Project Server 2007. We are facing a scenario where a resource has left the organisation and surrogate timesheet is no available. Is there any other alternative to enter time on their behalf?

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi Khaldun,

    In this case, surrogate timesheet is the dedicated feature to enter actual work for a resource that cannot do it for any reasons. Can I ask why you cannot use it?

    Has the timesheet at least been created by the resource before leaving and just not submitted? 

    Then is the timesheet required for any HR/payroll system and/or process? If it is not and it is just required to update the project plan with the resource actual work, I'd suggest the project manager to enter the actual work directly in the project plan for the resource assignments (if it hasn't been prevented in the server setting, forcing actuals coming from PWA).

    Hope this helps.
