Timesheets - Total Time Reported

In the settings, I have marked the '11.1 Actual effort updated from timesheet" set to off as I don't want the % complete to be affected by new time entries.  However, I would like to summarize the amount of time being reported on a task or project.  Is there an out of the box feature that does this?  Or do I have to program a workflow to update a custom field that totals this?

There is an out of the box way of doing this by using one of the many Time Tracking reports provided to you in the Reports Module. The problem is that this will no longer be accurate if you disable the Actual effort updated from timesheet which means future Work Items will not have this enabled and all effort will have to be manually entered at the work item level. 

You can create a custom Report but typically Time Tracking Summarizations are not very good with the current Report Module. The good news is that we have a brand new Reports Module coming out February 22nd which will allow you to create more customized reports as well as dashboards. You can also pull the data using the Excel Add-In and use Excel functionality to create the desired report.

Thanks.  I'll check out the reports.  

The reason I have this disabled is that we've never tracked our work in hours before so what is listed in the work plan is an estimate.  By tracking this over time, our estimates will become more accurate and we may be able to turn it back on.
