Is it possible to change billing category on TimeSheet without removing the task and re-adding it? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Currently we are working on configuring Project Server 2013. One of the requirement is timesheet. Customer wants timesheet prepopulate with current tasks. As we configured the timesheet setting to prepopulate with current assigned tasks. But there is an issue which they also want to be able change the Billing Category (something like drop down from timesheet line). The only way we know to do this is to remove the task then add row from existing assignment then choose Billing Category there. But this cause confusion for the end users which shows all their tasks not just the one for this week. Is it possible to change Billing Category from the line itself?

  • Hi,

    The billing category of administrative lines in the timesheet cannot be changed. A solution would be not to display by default the administrative time (but keep the timesheet auto populated by the user's assignments) and ask the users to add by themselves the administrative lines, so they can choose their billing category.

    Note that with Project Server 2013 allows having multilines administrative time categories. See this blog I wrote a while ago:

    Hope this helps,
