    As the Project Server administrator, you will need to complete the following steps to customize the Tasks page for all team members:
     
    1.  Log into PWA with administrator permissions.
    2.  Click the Settings button (little gear wheel button in the upper right corner of the Home page) and select PWA Settings.
    3.  In the Look and Feel section of the PWA Settings page, click the Manage Views link.
    4.  In the My Work section of the Manage Views page, click the My Assignments link (this is the default view users see on the Tasks page).
    5.  In the Available Fields section of the page, select the Project Name field and then click the Add button.
    6.  In the Available Fields section of the page, select the Task Hierarchy field and then click the Add button.
    7.  In the Grouping section of the page, click the Group By pick list and select the Project Name [Task] item.
    8.  In the Grouping section of the page, click the  first Then By pick list and select the Task Hierarchy item.
    9.  Click the Save button.
     
    You MUST complete all of the preceding steps in order for this to work.  When anyone displays the Tasks page in PWA, they will see their tasks groups first by project name, then by the name of the summary task for each task.  It will not show separate rows for each summary task; rather, all summary tasks for a particular task will be shown on a single row.  Not perfect, but I think it should work for your people.  Hope this helps.

    Thank you.

    From what you show me in your screenshot, I do not think you did the steps I detailed, as you are showing me a Tasks page which has the default grouping, which is by Planning Window (tan rows) and by Project (light blue rows).  If you want to apply a solution for every user, you must use the solution I detailed in my previous post.  If you are willing to have each user apply their own solution, you have have them create a custom Grouping option that groups by Planning Window, then by Project, and then by Task Hierarchy.  Beyond this, I know of know other way to address your need.  Hope this helps.

  • Hi.

    Thank you for your answer.

    Sorry, but i did all steps (as i think) - my default grouping is on the first image in the first post.

    Probably you can make a screenshot with right grouping - i will really appreciate to you.

    Thank you.

    I apologize.  I should have looked more closely at your screenshots.  The way that you see summary tasks presented is how you see it in your screenshot.  There is no way to force Project Server 2013 to display tasks and summary tasks in the Tasks page in PWA to look exactly like the task list in Microsoft Project 2013.  Hope this helps.
