Question:
What is the purpose of the below settings in PPM Administration->Project Management->Timesheet Options settings (and how do they impact functionality in the New UX?
  • Populate assigned tasks 
  • Copy time entries from previous timesheet 
  • ( Include actuals from previous timesheet (except for incidents) )
Answer:
The 3 settings in the Administration section determine what is checked by default for users when they go to create their first timesheet. But if a user overrides any of the defaults set, that is retained for the user going forward when they create timesheets. 

Example:
  • If all the settings are unchecked, when a user creates a timesheet, by default these 3 options would be unchecked. If the user then checks the 'Add Assigned Tasks' checkbox when creating their timesheet, then the next time they create a timesheet, the 'Add Assigned Tasks' checkbox is checked for the user.
