How do I enable / disable time entry for work?

A user with specific permissions can change whether or not work should allow time entries against it. This might be something a work owner does when a project has been completed or canceled, or entered a period of time when hours should not be logged against the work. The yes or no option can be accessed via the Details section of the Summary page or via a column selection in Project Central.

Once it is set to "No" there can be no additional time entered on the work. If there is any existing time on the timesheet, it can be edited and approved; however, no additional time will be allowed. This would also be true if a time sheet is not approved or unapproved. This article describes how to disable time entry for work.
