When Update Task Start Date is enabled under Advanced Settings in Microsoft Project Integration Manager, it transfers the following details:

  • The project or task's Start Date field in project (located on the File >Properties > Contents tab) to or from.
  • The Time Entry Start Date field in Web TimeSheet.

If you are transferring a project from Web TimeSheet to Microsoft Project, start and end dates:

  • ARE updated, if it is the first transfer of that project. If you do not enable these options, the date of transfer will be transferred to these Project fields instead.
  • ARE NOT updated, if it is the second (or subsequent) transfer of that project.

Note: Not updating these fields in this direction prevents data conflicts.
