Re: (I4-4644760733) Reporting time without creating a project.
I have issues understanding the problem.
Regardless of what you are creating the project from in the end, you must be creating and using a request / proposal up front. There, you are able to use the request to log time against by adding the work item group to the Request Header Type and logging time against a request.
Basically, any request can have time logged against it, regardless of how you call it.
Thus, what are you using that you cannot create time against it?
