Hi I use 7.1 sp 5. I need set field "Actual effort" as requered in "My task portlet" or in task in work plan. If user set this field = 0 system send warnung only and allow set 0. If use Time Sheet all fine. But me time reporting separated. Any users use TS any report time via "My task portlet" or work plan. How it possible
The "Actual Effort" field actually cannot be set as required, in the "My Task" portlet or in the Work Plan.
I think the reasoning behind this is that the "Actual Effort" is supposed to be determined not in the beginning stages, but later down the line, once the effort has actually been logged.
This is what I personally would recommend it for. If you are concerned with reports on the actual effort at the outset of projects, it is possible that you should be running them on the scheduled effort.
