Working with Your Tasks

Note If you previously worked with Project Central, you know about the Inbox. Project

Server and Project Web Access don't use an inbox like Project Central did; instead, work assignments go from Project Professional to team members via Project Web Access. If your organization chooses, the Project Server administrator can set up e-mail notifications so that Project Server generates e-mail notices and reminders of events, such as past due tasks. These e-mail notices and reminders appear in your regular e-mail client inbox.

Click the Tasks tab at the top of the Project Web Access page or click the Tasks link at the top of the Home page to view tasks, as shown in Figure 21-5. By default, you see all your tasks in the Gantt Chart view. (You can identify what you're viewing by looking in the Actions pane to see which option has the small box next to it.) You can use the Timesheet view to record and report any work that you've performed, as shown in Figure 21-6.

Figure 21-6: The Timesheet view of the View my tasks page in Project Web Access.

Tip In the Timesheet view, you can use the Current Tasks link in the Actions pane to fil ter out completed tasks and tasks that are far ahead in the future.

Above the time sheet, you see two tabs: View Options and Filter, Group, Search. To use these tabs, click the plus sign (+) at the left edge of the tabs and then click the appropriate tab. In Figure 21-7, you see the View Options tab of the Timesheet page. When you click the Filter, Group, Search tab, you see options that enable you to change the order in which tasks appear from the default (by project) to start date, work, or task name.

Note Depending on your permissions, you may see a third tab, the Delegation tab. From this tab, you can choose to show only delegated tasks, only your own tasks, or both; you also can delegate tasks from this tab.
