Receiving updates from team members

When team members record time on the Tasks page, they click either the Update All button or the Update Selected Rows button. In either case, they see a message like the one shown in Figure 20-35, indicating that an update was sent to the project manager for approval.

Figure 20-35: Project team members see notices that their project managers will be notified of actual work that they've recorded.

Note Functional managers can also track and approve actuals that are recorded by resources who are working for them. From the Resource Center of PWA, click the Approve timesheets link in the Actions pane.

When the project manager logs on to Project Web Access, the home page contains a link that isn't found on a team member's home page—the Updates link, as shown in Figure 20-36.
