Hi guys

 

I am trying to get project progress on individual tasks to update (%complete) after approving timesheets submitted by my team. Unfortunately the progress is not moving, it's still 0% for example if a task is complete and approval given.

 

Please assist if possible.

Hello @khyron,

Are you using single entry mode? On the PWA Settings page, check "Timesheet Settings and Default" settings, scroll to the bottom of the page and look for "Single Entry Mode". This means that the timesheet data will also create a Task Status update. Once this Task Status update is approved by the Task Status Manage into the project plan it will progress the task. More details around timesheets can be seen here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/projectonline/set-up-timesheets
