Protecting actuals

Depending on how your project server administrator has set Project Web Access options, the integrity of actuals that you and other team members submit can be protected. This is crucial if your actuals are directly submitted to your organization's general ledger system to produce customer invoices.

If your project tracks progress by hours of work per time period, your project server administrator can restrict when you can enter actuals in your Timesheet. Locking the Timesheet periods ensures that you report hours only for current time periods, not for time periods in the past or future.

Furthermore, options can be set so that if the project manager or another user changes actual hours that you have submitted, those changes can be compared against what you originally submitted to see whether there's any discrepancy.

For more information about administrator Timesheet setup, see "Setting Up Team Member Timesheets" on page 629.
