Time Log User Restriction - preventing time logging on specific tasks by anyone

Time Log User Restriction - preventing time logging on specific tasks by anyone

Hi,

I've only recently discovered the "Time log user restriction" feature in Zoho projects, and it appears like it will solve some big problems for us, but it isn't quite working:
If i restrict time logging to either "task and issue owners" or "associated team members", I can still enter time on tasks that I am not an owner or in an associated team, respectively.
Poking around i found that if i assign a task to another employee, or associate another team, then I am prevented from logging time on that task. This means the feature only works if i assign tasks to a team - if they are unassigned, they are essentially open for anyone to log time on.
I need to restrict users from logging time unless they are the task owner or in the associated team, even if  the task isn't assigned to someone else (which is what I had thought this feature would achieve).  How could this be done?

Thanks

                                            Hi All, Today, we have made an enhancement in task inline editing. In 4.0, task edit is moved in a single screen in a pop-up. We designed this in-order to make the task edit across the product to be the same. Let it be in Feeds, Tasks & My Tasks tab, Calendar & My Calendar tab, a click on the task title will open the popup and user can edit the values. Customers pointed us the inline editing was very useful to them & how much they miss that in 4.0. Based on the feedback, we have rolled out this enhancement.

                                            Often, we stumble upon tasks having the same status workflow. Repetitive task processes are tedious to handle, right? That’s why we have introduced Blueprint for task automation. Blueprint is a tool to organize tasks and automate them based on the workflow you design and the criteria you define.    How do I associate tasks with a blueprint? You can set the criteria while creating the blueprint such that when you publish a blueprint, the tasks that satisfy the criteria will be associated with the
