Question:
How does the Task setting Open for Time Entry influence Timesheet tasks when using the various options to create a timesheet 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
Answer:

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

  • The task will not get added unless the task is open for time entry. 
  • If the user then tries to add the task after the timesheet is created using the +Work option, the user will see that the task is grayed out on the Add Task list (With an option Notify the Project Manager).  The user should notify the project manager requesting the task be opened for time entry so that the task can be added and hours entered for the task.

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

  • The task will show up when the timesheet is created using this feature if it was on the previous timesheet (this would fall under a scenario where the task was previously open for time entry and the task was on the previous timesheet)

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

  • The task will show up when the timesheet is created using this feature and hours from the previous timesheet will copy over if the task was on the previous timesheet (this would fall under a scenario where the task was previously open for time entry so that the task was able to be added to the prior timesheet)

ADJUSTMENTS:

  • Note: For Adjustments, note that both the project and the tasks must remain open for time entry and the project must be active to adjust a task on a timesheet.
