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

Feng Hong (241814) | 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. explains how you can do this.
