Issue:
How does Other Work behave as far as timesheet population in the PPM (Clarity) New User Experience / Modern User Experience (NUX/MUX)? These scenarios include the below timesheet creation options: 
  • Add Assigned Tasks
  • Copy Previous Timesheet
  • Copy Previous Timeheet with Hours
Resolution:

If the timesheet is created using the Add Assigned Tasks feature:

  • If Add Assigned Tasks is checked, then all other work tasks the resource is allocated to during the current time period would copy over

If the timesheet is created using the Copy Previous Timesheet feature:

  • By design, only other work items on the previous timesheet should copy over.
  • However due to a defect DE44336 users may see other work items not on the previous timesheet be added to the timesheet. Users can manually remove the other work items from the timesheets as a workaround. See KB KB000124283 for more details on this defect.

If the timesheet is created using the Copy Previous Timesheet (with Hours) feature:

  • By design, only other work items on the previous timesheet should copy over.
  • Hours are currently copying over. (Under Review for more details)
  • However due to a defect DE44336 users may see other work items not on the previous timesheet be added to the timesheet. Users can manually remove the other work items from the timesheets as a workaround. See KB KB000124283 for more details on this defect
