New tasks created by ....? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a weird stuff happening for the last few days: for one of the projects managed on PS2010, out of blue the project manager began receiving New Task Requests. The come in batches randomly at midnight or sometimes after the project is published. Each of the new tasks has the description of an already existing task name followed by WBS tree in brakets. And if the original task has, say, 3 assigned resources, you get 3 new notifications with each new task assgined to each of those resources (and as if submitted by this resource).

    So it looks like this:

    Original WBS:
    Project name
          Phase
              Summary task
                   Task "Create blah-blah"  assigned to A, B and C

    New Task Requests:
    A has submitted new task "Create blah-blah (Project name/Phase/Summary task)"
    B has submitted new task "Create blah-blah (Project name/Phase/Summary task)"
    C has submitted new task "Create blah-blah (Project name/Phase/Summary task)

    If PjM approves such request, the task is appended to the project at the end at the 1st outline level.

    There're no unusual jobs in queue, and it happens to just one project. So, where to look?

  • No, it's a recent and pretty 'vanilla' installation, although we have issues with Exchange syncro and I suspect this may have been caused by some related tweaking/customizations.
