"Actual Time" not updating RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    The "Actual hours" inputted when completing a specific task is not updating the actual hours field within the tasks view in the project the task it located in. The tracking method we have configured to be used is "Actual Work Done & Work Remaining'.

     

    Any help would be appreciative.

  • Hi Trent,

    two questions:

    • Was the update submitted by the resource?
    • Was update approved by project manager?

    And a third one if you look for it in PWA: Was project published after approval?

  • Hi Trent,

    who published your project? Was it the project manager who had approved these updates?

  • Hi Barbara,

     

    Yes, the project manager did approve and publish these projects. I verified thisby inspecting the publish database.

    At this point, it would help all of us if you would tell us what version of Project Server you are using and your current level of cumulative updates and service packs applied.  What you describe was a problem in Project Server 2007 prior to SP1, but later resolved.  Let us know and we will try to help.

  • Hi Trent,

    sorry for my late response - I haven't received an alert.

    Is this is an issue for some special task or does your PM see this behavoiur for all of his projects? I have seen that once before, when Hammock tasks had been used. If actual work was entered after task finish date, these actuals had automatically been moved into the planned period. Could this be the case?

    Regards
    Barbara
