Close Tasks to Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My Timesheet is cluttered with old tasks of a project which has been abandonned some months ago.

    So I went to Close tasks to update, I selected the project, I clicked Selected All and then I clicked Publish.

    But in my timesheet, the tasks are still there!

    What did I missed?

    Thanks

    You can also try by editing the project scheule in MS project and insert a new column Publish and select no for all the task and save and publish the project. The task will disappera.

    In Project Server 2007, you use this feature to �??lock�?� tasks to prevent users from adding more time again them.  It does not hide the closed tasks, however.  In Project Server 2010, this feature moves the closed task from the Tasks page and prevents the system from displaying the closed task in future Timesheet periods.  So, there is definitely a difference in behavior between the two versions of Project Server.  Hope this helps.

  • Tasks that are no longer working on or completed, should have the remaining work set to 0.  The project then needs to be saved and published.

    Cheers!

  • Thanks Michael,

    But I need to keep the history of what have be done, and what was expected to be done, on this abandoned project. So I can't set the Remaining Work to zero.

  • Hi,

    adding my 2 cents to Michael's spot on response: feature close task to update enables administrators to close out tasks to future updates. In scenarios where users must see and report on projects and their task details, users might also want to ensure that no future modifications are made to that plan. The Close Tasks to Update feature enables an administrator to select one or all tasks for closure.

    and in-order to remove the tasks from your your timesheet, you need to update the project plan as Michael's advise and publish.

    hope this helps.
