(I4-4644760733) Reporting time without creating a project.

Hi everyone,

 

Is it possible to create a time category to report time against without creating a project?

 

We currently have a workflow in place where a project request is submitted and

goes through approvals until it is approved to have a business case created. 

The business case is created and goes through a number of approvals,

is prioritized and is approved for a Project to be created. 

 

Once the project is created,

a time reporting category is created for time to be reported against for the project work. 

We have a request to be able to let people report time to a project request

before it becomes a project since there is time put into creating the request

and the business case that is not getting tracked.

 

Best,

Eduardo.

Hi Enunex,

 

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?

 

Best regards,

Dirk

(Eduardo submitted this issue on my behalf, I will respond here)

 

I am unfamiliar with the steps to "add the work item group to the Request Header Type"  I would like some further assistance with this, if possible. 

 

Sincerely,

Therese
