Project Server 2010 my tasks / predecessor task status RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work on smaller types of projects that, in some cases, can be started and completed in a matter of days.  I created project templates to facilitate submitting requests quicker.  This template starts with an Acct Manager, who's job it is to gather business requirements for a request.  Once requrements are complete, it's passed to the Dev Mgr to review and assigns to a developer (or multiple developers) to complete the task. 

    Oftentimes, the resource assignment of all the tasks can be done ahead of time so that the dev mgr/developers time is booked for planning purposes, even if the tasks are not yet ready to be worked on.  However, this causes the tasks to show up in the 'my tasks' section of each person involved, and there does not appear to be a field that indicates whether the predecessor tasks have been completed so that they know to start work on the tasks.  Of course, the information can be found by clicking on the task, but sometimes each individual could have as many as 20-30 tasks on different projects, so clicking in each task is cumbersome.

    Is there a way to add predecessor status column to the my tasks page?
