Microsoft project updating tasks
Summary: The fifth article in a series of eight articles about how to use Microsoft Project Web App to work with Microsoft Project Server 2010 data and to perform project management-related tasks.
Learn how team members can update their tasks and then submit them for approval through Project Web App.
When a team member is ready to submit a task update to the project manager, she or he selects the check box of the row for the status update.
Before you accept or reject task changes from project team members, it is important to be aware of your organization’s timesheet processing cycle.
For example, if your organization has a weekly timesheet cycle, you should plan to process all timesheet and task changes at least once per week, after all team members submit their status, but before the end of the weekly timesheet cycle.
Changes submitted by team members do not affect projects until they are published; only approved task changes are applied to projects that are published to the Project Server database and only approved task updates appear in projects as reported actual work.
If you know that team members have changed tasks, added new tasks, delegated tasks, or declined tasks, but the submitted changes are not available in the Approval Center, your team members might not have actually submitted their changes.
