Closed Project Workplan Keeps Reopening

Hello All,

We have closed a few projects with workplans recently that keep reopening after being closed. Has anyone experienced this issue? If so, what is the fix?

Regards,

Hasan

Re: Closed Project Workplan Keeps Reopening

Hi,

Is the project using timesheets? 

Logging time against a task and setting the percentage complete to a value different than 100 will reopen the task, and I suspect it may reopen the work plan at the same time. This may only be done if the task was already included in the timesheet, as I don't think tasks from a closed work plan can be added to a time sheet.

Does that sound like a plausible explanation?

Re: Closed Project Workplan Keeps Reopening

We have had the same issue here, although we are not using percent complete. The functionality is still playing tricks with us, closing work plan activities when set to 100%, but our users say they have not changed it or even know where to find it. Seems to have a life of its own...

Actually, there is a way to add closed items in a time sheet, see enclosed screen shot. Or is this something else?

Cheers,

/Chris

Re: Closed Project Workplan Keeps Reopening

We are seeing that a project and workplan that are set to Complete will reopen if someone copies an older timesheet to a current period if tasks from the Completed project are included.  This reopens the workplan but keeps the project completed.  Is there any other way that when resources use the items from a prior timesheet that they cannot bring over items from a completed work plan?

Hi Hasan,

You have an option that is "Include Closed Items" when copy a timesheet, to decide if or not bring over the closed items from a completed workplan. please see the screenshot enclosed.

thanTks,

Re: Closed Project Workplan Keeps Reopening

Hi - are there any updates on this?  Is there a way to disable the 'Include Closed Items' option when copying from a prior timesheet?

Thanks!
