Actual Work in MSP Higher Than Actual Work in PWA RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have PWA 2010 and MSP. MSP is showing Actual Work = 1517 hrs, Regular Work = 860 hrs, Work = 5032 hours. My actual work in PWA is showing 89 hours. The 89 hours is correct based on timesheets submitted, and the 860 hrs is the correct number of hours scheduled in the project plan. What would cause such a vast discrepancy?

  • Hi Jeff,

    just an idea: has the PM updated %complete in project plan without publishing afterwards? Update %complete does "copy" Work to ActualWork for the period marked as complete.

    If I am correct, you can avoid this in future, you could enable "Only allow task updates via Tasks and Timesheets." in Server Settings - Task Settings and Display.
