Perhaps it's possible using a custom action, never tried it though. You can probably solve it using a custom view.
Remove reportable item from timesheet
When you add a Reportable Item to the timesheets using "Add Reportable Item->Existing Reportable Item", it appears to set a hidden field "Reportable Start Date" to the current date.
However if you subsequently change the Start Date field of that task to a later date, it does not update the hidden field "Reportable Start Date" to the new Start Date.
As such, the task stays in your timesheet view indefinitely (until you complete the task).
Is there any way to reset the "Reportable Start Date" hidden field so that it is once again updated based on the Start Date?

The Reportable Start Date should not impact whether or not an item shows up on the timesheet, that is determined by how the timesheet is filtered. You can filter based on almost any field to reduce the number of items on the view. If the Start Date for a current object in the timesheet is changed to be a month in the future, that item should be removed from the timesheet until the task starts.
Hi Josh, perhaps it is not this hidden field that causes this, but I suspect it is. I know you can filter the timesheet view using almost any field. However I like having the timesheet view show all tasks for that week.
I currently have two tasks showing that are not due to start until next year, but they are showing on my timesheet view, and these are the only tasks I have added using "Add Reportable Item". And I notice for every other task, if I change the "Start Date" it updates the "Reportable Start Date", but not for these two tasks.
Hmm, if they don't start until next year they should not show up. Can you open up a support ticket and we'll have a quick look. Thanks!
Will do Josh. Thanks.
