Activities created from project WBS

Hi together, 

I'm all new here - so I hope to stick to all necessary rules and posted to the right chapter of this helpful forum.

I'm working with the project module for several years now (AX4 - AX 2012R3) but never felt it would be necessary to check what I can do with the activities which are created from the work breakdown structure. Today it changed and I feel it would be great to use it.

Today I realized, that the project WBS activities are usual activities, assigned one to myself and tried to look them up in the "my activities" area. Unfortunately the project based activities won't show up in that list page.

Once I delete the project assignment, the activity shows up as expected. - does anyone have a clue about this behavior? From my opinion I followed all the joins, queries and ranges through the system I thought everything would match...

My second "problem" is, that once I assign the task within the WBS to another worker, it won't fill the responsibility field with the actual worker but will always show the "created by" value.


Any help on this is highly appreciated.


Best Regards


  • Hi again,

    finally I can answer myself. MS states out that this is the behavior as planned. The reason is that there are some unsolved problems with updating the task and behavior when a task will be started / finished later than expected. Therefore these tasks are hidden. Corresponding KBA may be found in LCS.

    Hi Martin,

    Did you find a workaround for this issue?

    Hi, I realized that the activities show up on role center page and Enterprise Portal as desired. Then I stopped to investigate on this issue. Not really a workaround for the application itself but it filled the requirements.
