Here is a problem I tried to solve.

Work Flow
   A and B are ressources in multiple projects.  A and B have X has there assignmen owner.
   A and B fill in and submit there timesheet.
   Since, A and B doesn't own the assignments they can't send updates to project managers.
   X is the one responsable to review and send the task progress.

QUESTION :  How does X can import A and B timesheets into "Tasks" and submit it to project manager ?

    Accepted Solution

    Without custom code, this will not be possible.

    If A and B are filling in timesheets, why not make them Assignment Owners for their own assignments? The usual reason to have an assignment owner different from the assigned resource is when the resource can't log in to PWA; for example, an external vendor. Someone internal can fill in their assignment updates.

    If you'd like some pointers to some loosely related sample code, let me know...
