    Hi ,

    Am curious to know the purpose of "Time spent" and how is it different from "Actuals". They both sound very similar and ironically, neither of them get updated "automatically".

    Time Spent is a read-only numerical field that displays the number of hours spent on the task.  The Time Spent field is populated by timesheet entries using Rally Time Tracker.

    Actuals is manually entered and not related to timesheets.  Temporarily show this field to record time actually spent on tasks as a way to detect lack of availability or software complexity underestimated during planning.

    How do you manually enter actuals?
