Project Level / Task Level Time Tracking

One of our customers had a project setup with Time Tracking turned on - it was set to track at the Task Level. Some time had passed and time sheets entered when someone inadvertantly changed it to track time at the Project level. The customer is interested in switching this back, but as I understand it you cannot (I believe the system won't allow this). Does anyone know of a work-around or other way to deal with this?

Thanks,

Jamie

Good Day.
If you switching this back to Project Level (system allow this) then all tracked time summarize in zero seq number(main) task of project. time and percent for other task don't changing.
Good Luck

Re: Project Level / Task Level Time Tracking

Alexander is right, we had the same situation here several times. We cancelled the project, copied it and changed the time tracking setting in the copy. Afterwards you will have to add the actual efforts from both projects to get the big picture, but at least you don't lose data.

Re: Project Level / Task Level Time Tracking

As we suspected...

Thanks to both of you for your response.

In the meantime, we did do a test in our dev environment where we flipped the setting back to the task level (no time sheets had been entered while it was at the project level). Upon submitting a time sheet, it seemed to work just fine, although we don't know how it will affect actual rollups, etc.

Re: Project Level / Task Level Time Tracking

This has affected us as well. You would get the following pop-up message upon trying to switch back to Task level:

"Actual Effort has been logged against this project at a summary task level in Time Management. You cannot change effort collection to the Task level after effort has been collected at the summary task level."

Re: Project Level / Task Level Time Tracking

Safari on the iPhone apparently ignores the "position:fixed" css property, even though it works great in both Safari for Windows and OS X. This is especially annoying for app development, because you might want to make a bar at the top or bottom stay in place as the user scrolls the middle section.

I'm beginning to notice more and more that Apple really lied about making apps like the ones already on the iPhone (dragging things seems like a pretty important part of the UI that is just not going to be available on web pages, it's ridiculous).

So, anyone know a workaround, so other way to get these bars to stay in place? Do I have to use frames or something?

Did you try scrolling the middle section of your site with two fingers instead of just one. As was mentioned in a post on Macrumors' main iPhone page, Safari on iPhone functions differently when scrolling with one vs. two fingers. One finger seems to move the entire window up or down where as two fingers seems to scroll internal elements.
