Hoping for CA confirmation on observed operation of turning "Open for Time Entry" off on a task, with respect to time entry. See much discussion, answers regarding what happens when one populates timesheet, but what happens when task is closed to time entry after population?
My expectations are these, based on experience/observation:
If this is not the case, would expect to see error messages during timesheet submission/approval ("Error-Timesheet contains hours booked to closed task(s)" with no indication of which tasks...) or during transactions processing (errors in Invalid Transaction log).
Can anyone confirm this operation and/or point to documentation on this? Please, don't point me to Tech Tips on how timesheets get populated - that's not my question and I'm very familiar with those rules (unless they've been updated with "What happens when tasks are closed to time entry after timesheet population...")
Your expectation/understanding is the same as mine ; basically all the stuff related to "is this task closed" is only checked at the point that the task is added to the timesheet (population).
Thank you, David!
Concur. The phrase I use to explain this to people is 'timesheets always win' meaning, if it makes the timesheet, PPM will take the time regardless of anything else.
Thank you, Robert! Wish I could mark more than one answer as correct - but you have credit in my book.
