Time sheet policy warning


Hello,

I'm on PPM7.5 and learning the PPM.

I added tasks to timesheet, entered effort against the tasks and when I save the timesheet, it gives some "time sheet policy warning" with the msg -

"Required activities have not been added to some task work items"

(pls find the screenshot attached with this posting)

Could somebody explain what this msg means and how do I add "activities" to task work items as the above msg seem to indicate ?

Thanks in advance

Hi ,

Please check your timesheet policy setting for that User.In TS policy in the Last tab which is "Activities" you might have checked the for the Mandatory option where Resource has to provide Activites for Workitems.

Please do the changes in Policy as per required and it should work fine then.

Hope this will help you.

Re: Time sheet policy warning


Thanks so much, Jyotir for the detailed steps and it did help to correct the settings and the policy warning is gone.

I'm just curious, if I wanted, how do I
add "activities" to the work items ?
(not quite clear how the activites and the tasks are linked and the purpose of linking them...
I did try to find the info from user manuals, but couldn't quite figure it out)

thanks again

Re: Time sheet policy warning

Coool...

If you want to add Activities then you have to provide the Activities in Task of the Project Work Plan.

So in Project Plan in Individual task you can associate Activities.

The basic ussage behind activities are like if more than one resources are assignned and you have different - 2 sub works (activities). then by using Activities you can have transparencty in Project - Time tracking.

Hope I am clear...
