Issue

How does the Time Spent field differ from the Actuals field?

Resolution

Time Spent is a read-only, numerical field that displays the number of hours spent on the task. ?The Time Spent field is populated by timesheet entries?using Rally Time Tracker.

Actuals, by comparison,?is manually entered and not related to timesheets. ?Temporarily show this field to record time actually spent on tasks as a way to detect lack of availability, or unestimated?software complexity during planning, for example.?
