Current Tasks view in PWA


V

Viren Saini

We are using Project Server 2003 with sp3.

I would like to know the criteria based on which the tasks gets displayed
into the timesheet. As per MS documentation the tasks which are currently In
Progress (i.e. the tasks on which you have reported time and are not
closed), as well as tasks that are scheduled to start within 10 days from the
current date gets displayed into the timesheet.

There have been cases in when the scheduled tasks did not appear at all on
the users timesheet and due to which they could not complete the tasks. This
is a serious issue as users look into their timesheet to see what they are
supposed to be working on a particular day / week. However, these tasks are
available in 'All Tasks' view but this is a very lengthy tasks list so users
prefer 'Current Tasks' view.

Please share your suggestions or thoughts on the same. Thanks!

In Project Server 2003, a "current" task is any of the following:

- Any unstarted tasks scheduled in the past.
- Any in-progress task.
- Any task scheduled to begin in the next 10 days (assuming this is the
value specified by your Project Server administrator).

What is unusual about the tasks in question that makes them not appear in
when the Current Tasks option is selected? Please research this, give us
the extra information about these tasks, and we will try to help. Let us
know.

Dale,

Thanks for the reply. I have checked, the offending tasks in the current
tasks view are only the first type of tasks that you have mentioned i.e. Any
unstarted tasks scheduled in the past.

These tasks do not get displayed, this is happening only for couple of
users, is there anything that we can do to get them displayed again on users
timesheet. Will republishing help?

Regards,

I cannot imagine why those tasks would not appear with the Current Tasks
option selected. Yes, you might try republishing the project to see if that
helps. I am mystified why they would appear with the All Tasks view
applied, but not with the Current Tasks view. Let us know what you find
after republishing.

Republishing fixed the issue. Thanks for your help...
