  • 1.  How to use Organizer - Task

    Posted Aug 15, 2017 02:31 AM

    In Clarity from Home - Personal - Organizer - there is a separate Tab for Tasks.


    My understanding:

    The user can filter by Project to show Task Items which they have been assigned to

    The user can update data on the Task including Start/Finish date and ETC

    The Start/Finish Date when updated automatically updates the Resource Allocation, and if required, the Task Start/Finish Date

    The ETC when updated, updates the Pending ETC

    The Pending ETC can then be viewed on the Pending Estimates Review

    Open Workbench has the ability to 'accept' Pending Estimates - I don't know what this does to the Project Schedule


    • Is anyone using Personal - Organizer?  Can you share your experience?
    • How does the PM review and update the Pending ETC?
    • We are using MSP Interface, where some Tasks have been updated with Pending ETC, and we can't work out why?  Is anyone else using MSP Interface?
    • How are PM's notified when a Task date is pushed out as a result of Organizer - Task?


    There is a sections of the organization wanting to use this facility, but we can't locate documentation on the functionality.

    Dear Roland,


    With respect to your query on Organizer >> Tasks tab, how it works with respect to marking tasks as completed, pending etc, please refer to the following knowledgebase document:


    What happens when you mark a task Complete on the Organizer Task page? 

    Detailed scenarios:

    When a user marks a Task Completed in Organizer Task list, under certain circumstances the task finish date changes to t…

    Thank you Samik for this response.

    Are you aware of any integration to MS Project, which is what this Client is using, in relation to Proposed ETC.


    I have manually configured the Proposed ETC to push it via the MSP Mapping.  The PM can now see it in MSP now, and can then determine what they would like to do with it manually (ie update the ETC manually, and then blank out the Proposed ETC).


    In addition, I have also configured a custom attribute Assignee Comment, which was pushed to the Organizer - Task via the Assignments objects, so the Resource can provide additional information back to the PM.  This is also being pushed via MSP Mapping.


    Finally, I also developed a custom Portlet, based on Pending Estimates Review so that when the PM logs into Clarity, they have easy access to this data and can manually decide what to do with it.
