Is it possible to prevent team member affect plan schedule in RTC?


Feng Hong (241714) | asked Jul 23 '13, 8:47 p.m.
We use RTC 4.0.3. In RTC, team member can create task on his own. After a team member create a task and fill in the estimate and plan-for field, the project plan schedule will be affected. Is there a way to prevent from team member to affect the plan? or any mechanism to control the change of the plan?

Hi Feng

The plan is always live - so any time someone changes a task estimate, or adds a new task with a estimate, etc it will change the plan. That is by design. 

Lauren has suggested how you might stop people setting the Planned For field, and there are  process/role rules in the project area that will let you prevent people from creating new tasks.  You might also want to remove the ability to add in an estimate.

I would be really interested in why you need to prevent people from doing this.

One option would be to restrict what user roles can set the Planned For field.  https://jazz.net/forum/questions/60594/restricting-work-item-attributes-to-certain-roles explains how you can do this.
