1582930 - Is it Possible to Modify the Actual Work Recorded by a Team Member in a Migarted Project?


You, as a Project Manager, wants to modify the Actual Work for a team member on a task in a Migrated project after time recoding has been approved.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Project management work center.
  2. Select Projects view.
  3. Highlight a Project and select Edit button and choose Project Plan option.
  4. Go to Work sub tab.
  5. For an employee, the Actual work is X hours and you wants to change it to Y hours.


The actual work of a task service generally is not editable at all, it is calculated internally from time confirmations in the time sheet.

To be able to cope with work already confirmed before starting with ByDesign the actual work is editable in the migration mode but this is an exceptional case and should be done only once when migrating the project.

From planned and actual work the remaining work is derived. During project execution the remaining work can be entered manually if it turns out that the forecast remaining work is more or less than plan and actual work. Allowing to change the actual work as well after real time confirmations exist is not possible as it may result in wrong calculated values (and the values from the task services are aggregated up the project hierarchy and to the team members and services).
