Why shouldn't we use a dedicated Windows account for the Automatic Update service on Microsoft Project Server?

Automatic data transfer from Web TimeSheet to MS Project is configured using Web TimeSheet's MS Project Integration Manager's interface. The updates are carried out by a Windows Service running in the background. This service requires a user account for the system on which it is installed.
During installation of Microsoft Project Server, you will be prompted to enter account log-in information for using the Auto-update service. This service allows you to set up schedules for automatic data transfer.

In past versions of the Microsoft Project Integration manager, we recommended creating a new account for the sole use of the automatic update service. However, due to changes in how connection information is saved, we now recommend that the login information for the account used to run Replicon manually be used instead. This will ensure Replicon connection information is accessible when the automatic update service is running.
