What's the best way to handle Contractors on the Server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are using Project Server 2010 with SEM timesheets. We have a contractor working on some of our projects. We would like the contractor to be able to submit timesheets as a way to enter progress on his tasks, as well as uses them as the record for his billing.  He just happens to be a former employee who was inactivated when he left the company but is still listed on the server as an inactive user.

    What is the best way to set him up back up on the server since he is no longer an employee, but an independent contractor? Is it true that since we need him to use PWA for timesheet entry he must be set up as an enterprise resource to have  PWA access, or can he be set up as a local resource? Can I simply re-activate him and make the applicable changes to his current account?

    Thanks.

  • Yes, that's true. To submit timesheet resource should be enterprise resource. In this scenario you can update existing user with his new windows account and also make sure to re-configure his group membership the way you need how contractors see things in PWA.
