  • Hello,

    What is the version of Project Server ? If you have already created timesheet , would suggest to delete & recreate the Timesheets.

    Hope that helps.

  • Hi Arati Kavinde,

    What version of Project Server are you using?

    Does the custom field has values for the assignment rows? Because it is the custom field value of the assignment row that is visible on the timesheet. To check this, open the project in Project Pro and open the Task Usage view. Ad the custom field and see if it contains values for the assignment rows. Enter values for the assignment rows and publish the project again.

    You might have to delete and recreate the timesheet after you have published.

    To set the values on assignment rows automatically, you might need to change the custom field definition.
    Vefify whether you have set the custom field to 'roll down unless manually specified' for the assignment rows? If not, do so. This will automatically roll down the task level values to the assignment rows.

    I hope this helps,

    my Custom field has roll down option set and the values are showing up in the task usage view. please advice. thanks.
