  • No it is not possible to include administrative timesheet items in Resource center/Assignments View, possibly because they are not actually "assigned" to a resource.

    You could develop a custom report for it, or use the Timesheet Actuals Template from the BI Center or the Timesheet OLAP Cube

  • Thanks for reply! I understand about OLAP Cube. Can you explain me in few words how can I develop this custom report? I mean what kind of  tools this can be done? PWA or OOTB?

  • It should be possible OOTB. Here is the high level process:

    • Go to BI Center >> Templates >> Your OLAP Cubes >> OLAPTimesheet
    • This should open the file in MS Excel.
    • Once in just drag and drop the fields you need in the area applicable. Specifically Timesheet Project List, Timesheet Resource, Timesheet Task List come to mind.
    • You can save it back to SharePoint with a different name.
