Line classifications (Project Server 2010 settings)

Project Server 2010

Published: January 27, 2011

Timesheet line classifications are used to report different types of time against the same task assignment in Microsoft Project Web App. For example, your organization may have different classifications for Travel, Training, and Standard (default) work. Using classifications enables the timesheet user to add the same task assignment once per classification type.

note Note:

The Standard line classification is required, even if all work on the task assignment is being reported against timesheet lines with other classifications.

By default, all timesheet lines use the Standard (or default) line classification. Resources can manually change a timesheet line to use one of the additional line classifications that you have configured.

To create a new timesheet line classification

  1. On the Quick Launch, in the Settings section, click Server Settings.

  2. On the Server Settings page, in the Time and Task Management section, click Line Classifications.

  3. In the Edit, Enter Line Classification section, click New Classification.

  4. In the grid, type a new name and description that identifies the timesheet line classification for team members.

    note Note:

    If you are having difficulty editing the grid, make sure that you have applied the latest updates for Internet Explorer 9 on your workstation.

  5. Click Save.

If a classification has been used in previous timesheets, but you no longer want resources to be able to use a classification in timesheets, you can make the classification inactive. This maintains the classification in previous timesheets, for historical reporting, but prevents it from being available in future timesheets.

To inactivate an existing timesheet line classification

  1. On the Quick Launch, under Settings, click Server Settings.

  2. On the Server Settings page, under Time and Task Management, click Line Classifications.

  3. In the Edit, Enter Line Classification section, select Inactive in the Status column for the line classification you no longer want available to resources.

  4. Click Save.

If a line classification has never been used on a timesheet, you can delete it from Microsoft Project Server 2010 altogether.

To delete an existing timesheet line classification

  1. On the Quick Launch, under Settings, click Server Settings.

  2. On the Server Settings page, under Time and Task Management, click Line Classifications.

  3. In the Edit, Enter Line Classification section, click the row for the line classification you are deleting, and then click Delete Classification.

  4. Click Save.
