Other Resource's Task Show up on Task List - Project Server 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a user & when he views his Task list he sees all tasks assigned to him. However, he also sees some tasks for another user on the Project Team. This users does not report to him. Also the two resources are under completely different reporting structures on the RBS. He can only see his tasks & some of the tasks for this other person.

    I thought it might have something to do with task dependcies, but one of her tasks that he can see has no dependicies and is not used as a depency on another task.

    Does anyone know why he can see this other person's tasks? It was my understanding you were only supposed to see tasks assigned to you in your task list. Thanks.

    Ask the PM of the project containing the tasks belonging to the other team member to open the project containing these mysterious tasks.  Then ask that PM to navigate to the Resource Usage view and to locate the team member whose tasks are appearing on the Tasks page of the other user.  Then ask the PM to temporarily insert the Assignment Owner column.  Look at the tasks for the team member in question.  Do you see the name of the team member the Assignment Owner fioeld for each task, or do you see the name of the OTHER team member instead?  If Assignment Owner for the tasks is the wrong team member, select the correct team member for those tasks in the Assignment Owner column, and then save and publish the project.  Let us know if this helps.

    That is it. The Assignment Owner is different than the Resource. How could this happen? I don't think the PM even knows how to change this.

    Thank you so much for the help.
