Administrative Timesheet Classes and TS_LINE_CLASS_ORGANIZATION RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I'm bulk-creating lots of admin timesheet classes (yes, I know that there's no supported way of removing such classes after creating them, but still...)

    When creating such a line class, there's a field TS_LINE_CLASS_ORGANIZATION that's used in sorting the dataset returned to PWA - e.g.: the selection field when inserting new non-Project lines into your timesheet gets data from a storedproc that sorts by this field first and Name after that.

    My question is: do any of you know if that field is used for any other purpose other than sorting?

    Checking the database shows all pre-configured and manually added entries having the same value ('Default') in this field.

    Could it be that 'ORGANIZATION' in this context implies 'means of organizing your entries' ?!?

    It's got nothing to do with Departments.

    The reason for asking is that I want my bulk-inserted classes to have a specific grouping and sort order and using this field would be perfect if it doesn't ruin something else.

    On a related note - there's a field TS_LINE_CLASS_DESC that apparently is meant to hold a description text and which could possibly be used in reporting - it would have been nice if that field text had been used for tooltip text instead of having the TS_LINE_CLASS_NAME re-appear as a tooltip when holdning the mouse above the name field... sort of redundant if you ask me :-)
