Currently I am using a spreadsheet to record the notes/comments for the hours I spent on a task. For example, I record my work hours in Resource Usage in MS Project 2013. Then I go to my spreadsheet and record my comment on that specific date and hours. Is there a way to record the notes/comments for the date and hours that the task is performed? Thanks

MSP's data model isn't very rich at the "assignment" (where a resource and task meet) and I think - from memory - that the answer is no. I don't have MSP where I am currently but I can look at it in a few hours from now.

I presume you use a split view with resource usage underneath and hours over a timescale under the Gantt?

I don't use the split view. I just click on the Resource Usage (top left corner where the Built In option is)

Hi. The only "assignment level" information I can find - which you might find acceptable - is "Notes" as I attempt to display below:Resource Usage View - Actual Work included - Assignment Notes

Sure. But I think that note is for the task, rather than the work hours of the task.

No. See the title of the note dialog is "Assignment Information"

Task notes are separate:Task Notes in MSP via Gantt View

I see what you are saying. In the Resource Usage, for a specific task. manually add notes for each day in the Notes option for that particular task. Ok. It is a manual process to search for a particular day in the notes But that will work.

I was thinking if I have a one year long project, I will have a lot of notes in my Notes for a task. Thanks

Yes I'm  not sure how well it will work for you but the data model at assignment level is limited and cannot be extended.
