Zero-out Remaining Work in Project Server 2010 with SEM enabled, and Protect User Updates set to 'Only allow task updates via Tasks and Timesheets' RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    We are using Project Server 2010 +SP1 + Jun 2012 CU. We have following settings in our environment:

    - SEM (Single Entry Mode) Enabled

    - In "Task Settings and Display > Project User Updates" = we have Only allow task updates via Tasks and Timesheets" option checked.

    What is the best way to zero out "Remaining Work" by Project Managers when the task is complete and there is some remaing work left on the assignments?. We asked "Team members" to update remaining work to 0 in timesheets and submit timesheet seems to not work always, and Project managers see different results based on the Project when they try to update in Project Pro, so, any ideas and appreciate any documentation on this topic with the setup we have in our environment.

  • What 'different results' are you talking about?

    Even with your settings the PM should be able to set Remaining Work to 0.

  • Brian,

    Thank you for your response. When we try to update Remaining work = 0 in Gantt Chart view, we get "Actuals Out of Sync" message and then the changes are ignored, either we click Yes or No to this message"

    If we change the same in Task Usage View, it throws the same out of sync message some times, and works other times... so dont know exactly, what other parameters are causing this warning message to come up... and what is the exactly supported way of zeroing out the Remaining work.

    Thank you for your help.

    Regards,Kishore Dodda

  • We r using the same settings as you have mentioned. But we have never recieved such message. If you are adding the column of remaining work in the MSP and zeroing it out, I dont think you should recieve the sync error.
