PS 2016 : Issue with Task name field under task summary view RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have the same issue. Refer screenshot. We are using Project Server 2016 - OnPremise updated up to March 2017 CU

    <g class="gr_ gr_34 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Style multiReplace" data-gr-id="34" id="34">Note :</g> Task column is a mandatory field, Hence you cannot hide it, But when you click Configure columns to modify the view and do clear all- task name columns get unchecked (Even thou it is greyed out) however when you do select all - task name column does NOT get selected. Hence the issue.

    Task Summary View.

    It's me again.  Here's an idea for you.  Ask your application administrator to make a temporary and minor change to the Tasks Summary View, such as adding an additional column.  Then have the user in question navigate to the Project Center page, click the name of a project, and then apply the Task Summary view again.  The behavior I have seen is that the system will reapply the view the way it is currently set up by the application administrator.  Hope this helps.

    Yes, We exactly did the same and this resolves the issue. No doubt this is a workaround. But this has now caused some more issue as several PM's had personalized their task summary views by configuring the column widths, sorting of columns. - All these are reset now. Several users are now forced to redo their views.  

    But point is - if Task Name column is supposed to be <g class="gr_ gr_790 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_disable_anim_appear Grammar only-ins doubleReplace replaceWithoutSep" data-gr-id="790" id="790">mandatory</g> column - Clear All option should not remove it, Even if it removes, Select all should add the checkbox and hence should be added back.
