  • Hi,

    Tracking methods are set at the PWA Instance level, so all departments within the instance will pick up the tracking method set. If you need to change tracking methods, consider different PWA instances, but this will cause you to lose your enterprise wide views of projects and resources.

  • Hi,

    Alexander is completely correct as always.

    But I see a workaround: Don't force your PMs to use a special tracking method in Server Settings. Create templates for each department with your required tracking method selected. If your PM uses one of his templates, tracking method defined in template will be used for the new project. However, it will not prevent your PM of changing this method at any time.
