Administrative Template



Using Project Server/Project Professional 2003 with Service Pack 1

Setting up an Admin project based off the Administrative Template and
using the "Notify your manager of time you will not be available for
project work" works mostly like I expect. The main exception is in the
following scenario:
1. Team member uses the notify link and puts 8 hours of vacation for
3/28 and 3/29 and then submits (16 hours total).
2. Project manager approves and then republishes the Admin project.
(So far this is what I expect)

3. Team member now realizes that 3/28 and 3/29 are not the correct
days and needs to make it be 4/4, 4/5 and 4/6.
4. Team member again uses the notify link and zeros out the time for
3/28 and 3/29 since that is no longer correct and then puts 8 hours in
for 4/4 - 4/6 (24 hours total) and then submits.
5. Project manager now sees that 3/28 and 3/29 have been zeroed out
and 4/4 - 4/6 have 8 hours each day.
6. Project manager accepts the correction.

(This is where it does not act like I would expect)
7. Once the manager accepts the correction, the Admin project now
shows that the team member is going to be taking vacation on 3/28,
3/29, 4/4, 4/5 and 4/6. Now it shows that the team member is going to
be taking 40 hours of vacation instead of only 24.

Is it supposed to work this way or am I missing a step? I expected
3/28 and 3/29 to be zeroed out since that is what the team member had
put in. I realize the project manager can adjust the Admin project
before he republishes so that 3/28 and 3/29 are zeroed out, but that
defeats the purpose of accepting the task change that the team member
