Project Server 2010 – Timesheet Submission produces “An error occurred while communicating with the server.”

When using Project Server 2010, you may run into the issue where a user submits a timesheet for approval and produces the following error:

“An error occurred while communicating with the server. Check connectivity with your administrator to determine whether further action is necessary.”

In the case I ran across, it was related to the user booking time against a task that was past the finish/end date listed in the Project Schedule. To resolve the user needs to submit their time on a valid task that is still within the current reporting timeframe, or have the Project Manager update the task in questions so that the finish/end dates are at or beyond the submission period and then republish the project. After that, the user should be able to go in and submit their timesheet with success.

The Journey Begins…

Finally, after years of procrastination I’m going to finally take to the blog-o-sphere and share my technology experience, tips, rants, etc. My blog will focus mainly on things related to Microsoft SharePoint 2010/2013, but won’t limit myself to just those and may expand into personal experiences with other technologies, web & graphic design and such.

Stay tuned, more to come…
