  • Hi all,

    I am kind of new to Project server.

    Is it possible to create a new entity type in project server like Project, Resource and Task. If yes, how?

  • Hi Sujay,

    Your question is quite a "start from the beginning" question... First of all, which version of Project Server are you working with?

    It is definitely possible to create entities in Project Server since in the other case the application will be totally useless.

    For resources, it should be enterprise resources, so the workload can be consolidated among all projects, allowing the capacity to be managed. Moreover, using enterprise resources allows doing timesheets and/or task updates.

    About tasks, Project Server aims at managing tasks and project, so the interrogation itself sounds redundant.. Creating a new project from Project Web Access or MS Project Pro connected to Project Server, you'll be able to add tasks, relationships between tasks, enterprise resources on tasks (assignments), and publish it to Project Server.

    Here are a few links (among a large number of blogs, articles..) I'd suggest you to read:

  • Sujay --

    If you are referring to the three types of custom enterprise fields in Project Server, then the answer is no.  You are limited to only using custom enterprise Project, Task, and Resource custom fields.  Otherwise, Guillaume has provided an excellent answer as well.  Hope this helps.
