Project Server 2010 - Customizing the resource assignment workflow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When you build project schedule and publish it, each resource will be able to view his assignments under Tasks then he can edit an assignment and does changes on it.

    What I need to know, is there any way to customize the workflow that controls the assignment lifecycle so that for example if the resource changed the assignment end date I need to generate approval task to his manager and when approved it will generate another approval task for his director and if the director approved the task then the change it get reflected on the schedule otherwise the change will be disregard and the resource will be notified by email.

  • Hi,

    There is no easy way to configure the task approval chain adding approval level and notifications. By default, the status manager of the task will receive the update for approval before it gets pushed in the project plan.

    Doing some code, you might achieve something similar, like sending an email to a specific user if the assignment finish date has been changed,  but the approval will always be send to the status manager once the update is submitted.

    Hope this helps,
