Project Assignments Not Displaying on a Timesheet

We recently had a client contact our EPMA support team asking for help with Tasks missing from user’s timesheets. There are many reasons a task might not show up on a Team Member’s timesheet and some are predictable.

At the end of a project, a project manager may be closing out tasks. In PS 2013 they may Lock the task, In PS 2010 they likely use ‘close task to update’. In our support case, it was at the beginning of the project and it didn’t take the support team long to find and resolve the issue using the following logic.

Background:

The project manager reported she was taking over a project schedule that had been created several months ago during the forecasting stage and was just now kicking off.

Task were displaying properly on timesheets for all but 2 users assigned on the project.

The timesheets appeared to be working properly for the 2 users except that no tasks from the new project were displayed on the timesheet.

The support team know, when you are planning projects and forecasting resource usage you have an option to book resources as Committed or Proposed. (Figure 1 below, also see Booking Type blog).  Upon opening the project schedule we found the 2 resources in question were both marked as ‘Proposed’, while all other resources were marked as ‘Committed’. When the 2 resources were changed to Committed and the schedule was republished, the tasks appeared properly on the timesheets and the problem was resolved.
