PPM Support Tip: Project's Request Type User Access affects see it in a Time Sheet
A new KCS article was published: KM00652933.
When restricting access on a Project's Request Type, Resources in the Staffing Profile cannot see the Project in a Time Sheet
Mr.A and Mr.B belong to a Project Manager Security Group, though Mr. A should not see any Projects of Mr. B.
Any Resources in the Staffing Profile of Mr. A should be able to log in a Time Sheet at the Project level.
1) The User Access tab in the Request Type of the Project Type is set using a Token
2) For the Project Security settings on the Project Type, the customer has set
"Only participants (Project Managers, Summary Task Owners, Resources Assigned on Tasks, Resources Allocated to the Staffing Profile, Stakeholders, and Process Participants)."
3) For the Time Management settings on the Project Type, the customer has enabled
"Use Time Management to track actuals against this project"
Resources assigned to tasks, resources on the staffing profile, and summary task owners".
4) Want to Resources on the Staffing Profile of the Project to log actuals in Time Sheet.
However, the Project's Resources, meaning a Resource in the Staffing Profile, cannot log a Time Sheet against Project because they cannot find the Project in the Time Sheet to log time against it. Only the Project Manager can log time against the Project.
By default, the Project Manager can view all Projects. A Project Manager can be prevented from viewing a Project in which they are not a participant by modifying the User Access of the Project's Request Type. However when doing so, the Resources of the Staffing Profile cannot log a Time Sheet against the Project.
a. For a Project which has this issue, Go to Project's Settings | Project Security, change the option "Users who can view this project and its tasks" to "All Users" and Save
b. Change the option back to "Only participants (Project Managers, Summary Task Owners, Resources Assigned on Tasks, Resource Allocated to the Staffing Profile, Stakeholders, and Process Participants)" and Save again
c. Login as a Project's Resource (a Resource in the Staffing Profile), the Resource can see the Project in the Time Sheet.
