I've been having trouble trying to create a report for a user who has been assigning Ad Hoc tasks to his team without adding to a project. He'd lke to be able to track what he's assigned out. Has anyone been able to figure out a way to do this and/or any insight into this? I realize I'd have an easier time just asking him to add all to a container project but wanted to see if there was something out there already.

We disallow creating tasks not associated with a project. That is a key reason why we are not deploying the Mobile App - it readily facilitates creating tasks and assigning them to other people. We also don‚Äö√Ñ√¥t have the ability to edit those lists of tasks when they are not associated with a project. We struggled for about a year and then decided to not allow people to use them. Ever. Sorry I don‚Äö√Ñ√¥t have a direct answer to your question, except to say we struggled too long trying to figure it out. Eric
Wow, so this is an interesting one. I've done some testing, and I can only show the task when I filter based on the task name (if I do a Task Report). When filtering by entered by, or date, or anything else I could think of, the task would not show up. I tried a Work Item report, and couldn't get it to show up there either. I'll be interested to hear if someone has a solution.
Greg - Thanks very much. I created a task report and looked at 197 personal tasks. They weren‚Äö√Ñ√¥t in use or were years old. I deleted them all. I‚Äö√Ñ√¥m going to schedule that report to run on a regular basis, and if someone creates personal tasks, we‚Äö√Ñ√¥ll have a chat with them and delete them. Thanks! Eric
