Task Status is getting changed automatically

Hi,

 

We are currently on PPM 8.04 version.

 

Task status in the workplan is getting changed to Ready from In Progress, eventhough setting it to In Progress status many times.

 

Does anyone had same issue with the tasks in the workplan. Any work arounds or suggestions please.

 

Thanks,

Vamsee.

Re: Task Status is getting changed automatically

Hi Peter,

 

sorry, I don't understand the question. You are stating that the status of a task is continuously being set to 'in progress' although you are setting it to 'in progress' a lot of times. This seems kind of contradictory. Please clarify. Do you mean that you are setting it back to 'ready' a lot of times?

 

Best regards,

Dirk

Re: Task Status is getting changed automatically

Hi,

 

can you give me more information? Is this a leaf task? does it have actuals set, ERE, Percent complete? Does it have a resource assigned? Is Microsoft Project integrated for this problem? Does it only happen for one task or multiple ones?

 

there's simply not enough information provided here.

 

If possible, add a screenshot for better visibility and explain which task is the problem.

 

Thanks and best regards,

Dirk

Re: Task Status is getting changed automatically

Hi Vamsee,

 

I have tried to reproduce but failed.

 

is there a timesheet line logged against this task - even if the line has zero effort?

Please share a screenshot of how the task looks when it is in 'in progress'-status;

Is the project / workplan an upgraded one or created from scratch?

please also share the project settings for cost and effort.

 

Thanks and best regard,

Dirk

HI Dirik,

 

Project does not have any line items or hours charged even in the database. This project was created before we upgraded the system to 8.04 from 7.1.

 

Attached the screenshot of workplan and cost and effort section details.

 

Thanks,

Vamsee.

Re: Task Status is getting changed automatically

Hi Vamsee,

 

I found quite a couple of issues where an upgrade may have caused the problem, there are some defects out there but they should be solved long-gone.

I see that you just opened up a case with HP Support to investigate the issue, which was probably the most sensible to do in this case.

We can update this thread when a solution is found for the problem to share the info.

 

Good luck for you.

Best regards,
