Inserting a task to my time sheet RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I attempt to assign a task to my timesheet by clicking "Insert Row", Select "Insert Task", I get the dialog box and can select the project that I want, but can only select "All Tasks" from the Task Hierarchy pull down, even though I have multiple tasks in the project.

    I am assigned to the project, but not assigned to a task.

    What do I need to do to see all of the project tasks in the pull down menu?

  • Rick,

    It sounds like you are working with Project Server. If so, you will probably get a better answer if you post to the server forum at, http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/projectserver2010general. This forum is dedicated to questions/issues with the stand alone versions of Project.

  • Insert Task is for putting one of your existing tasks into the current time period.

    Try using the "Add yourself to a task" instead.

  • Also, make sure that you are assigned to the tasks and the task flag "Published" is set to YES.  Also, has the project been published with the latest task updates.  Any of the above can prevent you from seeing that a task has been assigned to you.

    Cheers!
