Issue/Introduction

If a task has 0 ETC and there are actuals posted against it, the task status shows as complete.   Note that this is the same at the assignment level.  Completed tasks/assignments do not show when you populate a timesheet with assigned tasks.

 - This was always the functionality even in Classic PPM.

 

If a task or assignment has 0 hours posted and 0 ETC, the task will show as Not Started or Started and these will show when you Add Assigned Tasks for the timesheet.

 

How then can we easily find tasks which we are assigned but have 0 ETC?

 

Cause

Many times non project work such as Other Work has 0 allocation and assignments.  Once time is posted to these the status of the assignment becomes complete and they do not show when you Add Assigned Tasks.

If a task has 0 etc and there are actuals posted against it, the task status shows as complete.   Note that this is the same at the assignment level.  Completed tasks/assignments do not show when you populate a timesheet with assigned tasks.

 - This was always the functionality even in Classic PPM.

Environment

Release : 16.0.1 16.0.2

Component : Clarity Time Management

Resolution

You will need to click on Select Tasks which brings back a list of Open for Time Entry Tasks for projects where you may or may not be assigned.

 

Use the Smart Filter on the Select Tasks option to make 

Assigned Resources = Current User

This can be saved as your default filter so each time you go to Select Tasks it will only show the tasks you are assigned to.

Additional Information

This link is to a document with the logic for populating a timesheet.  It is an older document and does not include Other Work, but that follows the same logic.
