A resource is assigned to an automatically scheduled task with start date: 2/12 and finish date:2/22.
The baselined, saved and published project is scheduled to finish 2/23.
The resource does not start work on the task until 2/15 and submits a timesheet on 2/16 reflecting the hours worked only on 2/15. (for example 0h was not entered for 2/12-2/14, if that matters)
The task update is approved by the Project Manager in PWA (project web app), and publishes the timesheet. But later notices in MS project professional that the scheduled finish date of the project has automatically changed to 2/28, because the duration of the task automatically increased; causing re-work to readjust the schedule, tasks, predecessors, etc.
Please, How can this be prevented?
