Disallow Project Tracking
The easiest way to prevent users from tracking time against a project and only allow them to track time against tasks is by disallowing project tracking. This will add a restriction to the desktop client which will force them to track time against tasks strictly, and not to the parent project.
NOTE: When tracking on projects is not allowed, users won’t be able to edit time manually for those projects.

IMPORTANT: You may need to refresh the desktop client to fetch for these changes.
