I need to be able to lock certain tasks to prevent users from editing them because they are used to rollup into reports. I set the locked flag to “yes” on these tasks, yet I am still able to edit them. I’m using Project 2016 desktop version.
Locked flag is used for Project Online / Server to prevent team members from entering additional time on a completed task. Though there are alternatives available like macros, customizing filters and views, it will not prevent users from not editing the tasks.
