There are times when a resource has mistakenly posted time to a task and later needs to be removed from the task, removing a resource from a task even after adjusting timesheets to 0 hours, or after deleting the timesheets still result in an error "PRJ-07580: One or more staff members cannot be removed. This may be due to security, committed actuals or booked requisition."
Why is this and what would it take to remove the resource from the task, or further remove the resource from the project?
Release: All PPM Releases
Component: CA PPM PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Per the current product design it is possible to achieve this goal, however the steps impact a larger amount of data than what you may initially expect: you should be ready to remove all timesheets that fall within the affected time reporting periods, and all financial transactions on the project from not just for a specific resource but all resources. Therefore we recommend that you carefully review the steps below and decide if they are feasible given the scope of the problem and the impact area:
15.5.1 and higher
Before 15.5.1, if a project had time entries or financial transaction data, you could not mark it for deletion. You had to delete the time periods that contain the actuals first. Starting with Release 15.5.1, you can delete investments with timesheet or financial transaction data. To enable this feature, select the Allow Marked Investments with Timesheet and Transaction Data to be Deleted check box on the Settings page.
