TimeSheet.CreateTimesheet method

Office 2013 and later

Creates a new timesheet and calls the PrepareTimesheetLine(Guid, TimesheetDataSet, []) method.

Namespace:  WebSvcTimeSheet
Assembly:  ProjectServerServices (in ProjectServerServices.dll)

[SoapDocumentMethodAttribute("http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/TimeSheet/CreateTimesheet", RequestNamespace = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/TimeSheet/", 
	ResponseNamespace = "http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/project/server/webservices/TimeSheet/", 
	Use = SoapBindingUse.Literal, ParameterStyle = SoapParameterStyle.Wrapped)]
public void CreateTimesheet(
	TimesheetDataSet dsDelta,
	PreloadType preloadType
)

Parameters

dsDelta
Type: WebSvcTimeSheet.TimesheetDataSet

A populated TimesheetDataSet object.

preloadType
Type: WebSvcTimeSheet.PreloadType

A PreloadType object that indicates the desired preloaded lines for the timesheet.

This method submits jobs to the QueueSystem object. The CorrelationGUID property for the job is equal to the value of the TS_UID property.

Project Server Permissions

Permission

Description

Non-standard

The current user is the timesheet owner.

CreateSurrogateTimesheet

Allows the user to create a surrogate timesheet. Applies only if the current user is not the timesheet owner. Category permission.

The following code example determines whether a timesheet exists for the first open period. If it does, the example reads the timesheet. If the timesheet does not exist, the example creates a timesheet with the default timesheet lines that are specified on the server.

For critical information about running this code sample, see Prerequisites for ASMX-based code samples in Project 2013.
