tfs timesheet...q's and issues...

Apr 21, 2009 at 11:57 PM

Hi again Luke

Have successfully got tfs timesheet up and running.

I can add time through the week view but for the current day only – trying to change the other days doesn’t work – is this configurable? I’ve tried the config switches “enforceConsistency” and “updateWorkItemsFromTimesheet” to no avail.

Also, have had no success giving myself admin rights.

I’ve tried…


<add loginID="HGL\andwel" />


<add loginID="andwel" />


As you can see, no admin rights, and the red flagged entries aren’t saved.

Currently reading the code, but hoped you could help.

From: lstratman

Yes, when the completed work value in a work item is changed, we compare it to the previous value and add that amount to the day's total for that person. We do not make the assumption of one work item per person: whoever makes a change to the completed work gets that amount to assigned to them. If you want to only have time entry available through the timesheet, you can create completed work fields for the work item template but not any user-facing corresponding field in the UI. Then, as time is entered through the timesheet, the corresponding work item would have a history entry added.
