To add a task from a PM Central project, simply assign the resource to the task in the PM Central project Tasks list.
- If someone assigns you to a PM Central task after you have already saved the timesheet for the period that includes the task, click the Refresh button at the top of the timesheet to refresh the task list. Click the Save button to save the task to the timesheet. The task will not be included on the timesheet until you click both Refresh and Save. If you were removed from a task, your task list will only be updated on unsubmitted timesheets.
- If you create a new task in PM Central and assign a resource to it, the full task information—including the Project Name—may not be available in the timesheet for up to 59 minutes. This is the interval at which task information is updated in the PM Central portfolio site. If you create a new task and don’t see the Project Name in the timesheet, wait 59 minutes and then click Refresh and Save to update the task information.
- You cannot assign tasks using the Timesheet Tasks list if you configured PM Central as the data source for tasks. However, you can still add administrative tasks using the Administrative Time list.
