Tasks with status "unpublished" in the option Status Update from Approval Center RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I've configured the Manage Rules in the Approval Center to approve and publish automatically. Even with this settings some tasks are with Status "Unpublished" in the Status Update. I would like know if someone might say me why it happen and if exist some way to solve and avoid this issue. Follows the settings in My Manage Rules:

    Automatically run this rule - Selected

    Automatically publish the updates - Selected

    All new task and assignment requests - Selected

    All task reassignment requests - Selected

    All assignment deletion requests - Selected

    Task updates - Selected

    All Updates - Selected

    All my current and future projects - Selected

    All my current and future resources - Selected

  • Malik,

    I had observed a similar behavior and found out that:

    1. If Projects are checked-out while the auto-accept updates rule is run, the updates do not get applied to the project, and obvioulsy the publish does not run.
    2. Once the Projects are checked-in, the updates are applied to the plan.
    3. The Auto-Publish still does not run at that point, resulting all those updates to show up as "Unpublished"
    4. The only way-out at that point is to publish the updates from the Approval Center or publish the corresponding Project Plans.

    Hope this helps.
