Timesheet and task update on EPM 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,


    We are using timesheet in EPM 2007, our project managers have two issues:


    First our  project manager create tasks for specific duration let's say from 1-1-2013 until 31-1-2013 but some of the resources get the time sheet from 15-1-2013 not for all the task duration I do not know why .


    Second our project managers try add 100 % complete for the task but the actual spend hours  on the task updated automatically as the full planed hours but sometimes this is not the case some of the tasks may end with less hour than planed hour how can I reflect this on the project actuals .


    Thank you all for your support.

  • Not sure on the first part, but is the resource assigned for the full duration or have assignment edits reduced that resource's duration so they finish on the 15th?

    For the second question, if you enter % complete, Project has no way of knowing if the task finished early, late or on time, so it assumes on time. This is why entering % complete only is not recommended. As you are fillling in a time sheet, enter actual hours worked then update remaining work. This should give you what you want.
