When a user edits a task, or adds a new task to a project, that is a suggestion.
Suggestions are sent to the Manager for approval.
A suggestion can be in the following states:
- Pending - The user has sent the suggestion, nothing has happened with the suggestion
- Rejected - The manager has rejected the suggestion, the suggestion is gone.
- Accepted - The manager has accepted the suggestion, the suggestion is added to the
- Error - There is an error in the suggestion, which prevents LiveProject from updating
the Microsoft Project file.
- Orphan - The project has changed since the change was filed, and the suggestion
is pending on a non-existing task.

If suggestions are shown, include suggestions with errors. Note that you cannot
fix the error, the project manager has to take an action on that. Errors do not occur until
the Manager tries to update the Microsoft Project file. The manager will be notified
of the error, and should try to fix it when it happens. If an error is shown for
an extended period of time, it may be wise to contact your manager and solve the
problem together. Note that due to the complexities of Microsoft Project, LiveProject
may allow some changes to project files that cannot be written back. If you run
into such a problem often, please let us know.
If suggestions are shown, include orphaned suggestions. Note that you cannot fix
orphan suggestions, the Manager has to take action on that. If you do see orphan
suggestions, it is a sign that the published project version is out-of-sync with
your managers local version. Your manager should publish to avoid further orphaned
suggestions to be submitted by the participants.
