You must pass the “TASK_ID” parameter on the login page to achieve this (for example, the URL could be https://yoursubdomain.aceproject.com/login.asp?TASK_ID=24425 ). If you are not already logged in, AceProject will first display the login page where you will need to authenticate yourself, and then, you will be redirected to the corresponding task.
All task related questions (task assignments, dependencies, copying or moving tasks, etc.).
What is a Mandatory Dependency?
When a “mandatory dependency” is set between 2 tasks, the 1st task to be accomplished (the “predecessor”) must be set to completed before the 2nd (the “successor”) may be started. On the other hand, a “nonmandatory dependency” allows you to begin work on the successor task even if its predecessor(s) is/are not completed. When tasks linked […]
How are Actual Expenses calculated?
Actual Expenses are calculated based on expenses recorded by users. For information on how expenses can be added, please refer to the following help topic.
How does the import feature work?
Both the user and task imports work according to the same general principles. In each case, the import source file must be in CSV format with DOS/Windows Carriage Return + Line Feed invisible characters. The 1st “line” of the CSV contains “headers” that are associated with AceProject “fields”, each header being separated from the next […]
How should I use Marked Tasks?
Marked Tasks is a visual mechanism that allows a user to identify tasks he/she wants to “follow” closely for a certain period of time. When you mark a task, you are only marking it for yourself and this “mark” (the yellow star) will appear next to the task throughout the interface. Hint: In “custom” task […]
We would like to create a master project template, create projects with that template and then eliminate extraneous tasks. Is that possible?
The idea is to create a master template with all tasks that potentially will need to be performed when a real project based on this template is set up. Task dependencies will need to be set up around the tasks that may be deleted and a precise step-by-step will need to be followed. Here is […]
What’s the difference between an Assigned User and a Reviewer?
In terms of access rights, there is no difference between being “Assigned” or “Reviewer” on a task. The difference between one and the other pertains to work allocation. When a user is “Assigned” on a task, he/she will share the Estimated Hours allocated on the task with the other “Assigned” users, whereas a “Reviewer” will […]
Can I create subtasks?
AceProject does not support multi-levels of tasks. It can’t “understand” a task as being part of another. There are two workarounds. The first is to create AceProject “Task Groups” ( or “Task Types”) in your project to represent your “main tasks” and then associate your “subtasks” (AceProject “tasks”) to the proper AceProject “Task Group” . […]
I want to set a task to completed but I get a Task #x cannot be completed because it still has an open Time Clock associated with it error. What can I do?
As an administrator, under Home => Time > Active Time Clocks , you should see a running timeclock item on that task. Odds are the elapsed time on the timeclock item will be considerable which means you will have no choice but to delete it. Thereafter, you should be able to close out the task.
Why is the Hours field in the Estimates section of the task Edit screen disabled?
When the Hours field is disabled, you are allocating hours of work on the task in “Custom Hours” mode. Just above the task assignment grid, you will notice 2 radio buttons. One is labeled “Divide Hours” and the other, “Custom Hours”. The Divide Hours and Custom Hours options refer to the way estimated hours are allocated […]
