HP PPM 7.1 Project Actuals: Time Mgmt vs. Manual Capture

For a given project, actuals data is being captured by the time management part of PPM (based upon the cost and effort settings).

I want to enter some additional actuals data into the project manually (by editing each task individually).

My question: Is it okay to do this?

If I enter the additional actuals data manually, will this in any way conflict with the actuals that are being captured by time management?

Thank you.

You cannot modify labor actuals on a task once TM actuals roll into it (the boxes are disabled), and if you enter labor actuals on a task before anyone logs TM time against it your manually-entered values will be overwritten & lost.

Only way to do both is to have two separate tasks.
