Does anyone give a meaning of Act Thru Date?? How this is work and effect in PPM ? Is Act Thru Date always display ending of time period ??
The actuals thru date is the dividing line on the effort of a task that says everything before this time is actuals, and everything after this time is remaining estimate to complete.
It is used as an indicator to help you know how far actuals have been tracked (posted aka committed) on the task. For this reason it is almost usually going to correspond with the ending of a time period, but there are perhaps exceptions - at least for example, with those tasks that are having a different tracking mode than Clarity/PPM, as any actuals for that task will not be coming from timesheets and defined posting periods. Uncommon or less common nowadays perhaps, but once upon a time there was no Clarity/PPM, only Workbench, and it was a key indicator back then.
The key "trick" (IMHO) with the ActualsThru date is that it is affected by the RESOURCE doing something (posting a timesheet) and thus may have nothing to do with the particular TASK/ASSIGNMENT that you may see it upon. Its is a function of the RESOURCE not the project-plan.
(i.e. resource has posted a timesheet against a different assignment elsewhere in the system )
Are you referring to the behaviour that the Actthru date applies to all projects when ever a resource posts time in just one project?

Yep thats exactly what I mean.
But just to be explicit, "the Actthru date applies to all assignments for a particular resource when ever a resource posts any time"
