What is the purpose or function of the allocation icon on the task list? When I click it allows me to enter dates to allocate to users assigned to the task, but the entries do not appear on the allocations screen.

Hi Drema,

This field allows a project manager to set the time entry start & end dates for individual users. This is not connected to resource allocation in any way. I have explained this in the screenshot below:


Let me know if this helps.

Thanks,
Lingaraj

Thank you. It does help. Since it has nothing to do with resource allocation can the icon be renamed so as to not cause confusion? (when you hover over the icon it says "Allocate Resources")
