Nevermind, I just answered my own question. I did not realize that all Link fields were also available for the RegularResourceLink. Once I realized that, it became a simple matter of updating the RegularResourceLink entity itself.
Update Remaining Effort on Behalf of a User
We have an external timekeeping system that our project team is wanting updates for in their project tasks. Adding the time entries is easy enough, I just used the createmessage method to add timesheets. What I'm having trouble with is that we are also wanting to allow updates to Remaining Effort.
The only place I seem to have found Remaining Effort for a task exposed in the API is within the Task entity. However, when I submit an updatemessage for a given task, the Remaining Effort is updated for our API user, not the desired user. Is there a way to specify which resource the Remaining Effort update is for?

You're quite right. For Individual reporting all work & progress fields are found on the RegularResourceLink.
Thanks for sharing!
