Pre-populated Actual work on MyTasks Page RRS feed

  • Question

  • All,

    I was just wondering if someone can shed some lights as to why actual work would be pre-populated in a resource's mytasks page. The PM claims that he it was not done via Ms project plan when he added the tasks. I also have the "restrict updates" checkbox ticked in task settings and display, so that would prevent him in entering any actuals if he went and do it straight into the plan.

    Any other pointers how this can happen?

    Any help would be much appreciated.


    Regards, Naweed

  • This can happen if the project gets published before the resource has opened their MyTasks Page.   Otherwise the system notifies the PM (in MS Project) that the actuals can only be modified via PWA.

    However, for actuals to be pre-populated in this scenario they would have to exist before the first publish.  Try it.
