Tracking in MS PROJECT SERVER 2010–Defining Time Reporting Periods



if you decide to track the Task progress via MS PROJECT SERVER 2010 timesheet than you have to define Time Reporting Periods. To do that go to Server Settings and then Time Reporting Periods:






You will get:


I want to create one period per week in 2012. So I will put:

  • Number of periods to be created: 52
  • Date the first period Starts: 01.01.2012
  • Length of the standard period (days): 1
  • Prefix: FP2012-

and I will hit the Create Bulk button, because I don’t want to create each period manually, and I will get:


Now, look at the last period:


I want one more period from 30.12.2012 to 31.12.2012. So I will select last period and I will click on the Insert After button, and I will create this period manually:


Status of each period can be Open or Closed. If it is Closed nobody will be able to report Task progressing, or any other activity for that (closed) period!
