How to disable timesheet entrance to a task after scheduled finish date

Hi;

We want to disable timesheet entrance to task when task's scheduled finish date comes.

Eventhough  the task is not %100.

I put those constraints but it does not block time entrance.

My work around is putting a notification on the tasks and closing task when notification comes.

Hi Riznad,

 

As Kerim posted you can use Time Sheet Rules.

 

Check Custom Rules for Time Sheets in page 47

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/KM1355991

 

However, this will work only if you are integrating with Project with Time management in the projects settings.

 

If users are reporting directly to the task (by using the workplan) so this cannot be achieved. In PPM the only restriction for logging time into a task is when it is closed or complete and this will depend on the project settings configure for the specific project (setting After a task is complete, allow time to be logged)

 

The constraints you are adding will only display a message but will not prevent any action over the task. I mean the constraint violation will only be reflected in workplan page as one Schedule Warning.

 

The follwoing ER has been logged in order to include this fearure in the next PPM Version: QCCR1L45704

 

You can track the status here: https://support.openview.hp.com/enhancement/do/main

 

Hope this helps.

Jonathan

Hi Riznad,

Unfortunately the same applies in 8.0 SP4. There is not feature available to accomplish this.

We will need to wait next PPM version to see the ER QCCR1L45704 implemented.

I would recommend going to 9.1 SP4 (lastest minor patch) to use the timesheet rules to workaround this.

Jonathan
