What Has Changed
Actuals - Time Worked, a new feature in Meisterplan, enables you to compare your project plans with the actual performance of your projects. Learn more in the Release Notes 05/26/2021 (Actuals - Time Worked).
Changes to the Project Details
The Project Team section is one of the optional sections you can configure for your project details. With the Actuals - Time Worked release, it now offers more information on who's assigned to a project and the expected workload. The section has become wider in the process, which means that if you have configured the section on the project settings, the project details layout for all users in your system may have changed:
This affects all customers who have configured the Project Team section on the project details, regardless of whether they decide to use Actuals - Time Worked or not.
How Your Team Gets Access
This action requires the Manage Users and User Groups right.
By default, users do not have access to Actual Time Worked due to its potentially sensitive nature. You can grant access per User Group using the Access Actuals - Time Worked right:
All user groups have read only rights to the new project field Approved Total Effort by default. However, they can only view this field in a project's details if you have already configured it.
You can remove the read only rights or grant edit rights by changing the Project Field Rights per user group.
You can learn more about configuring user groups in the Manage User Groups article.
You can learn more about Actuals - Time Worked in the Actuals - Time Worked article.
