Custom Project Site template, deliverables list RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've created a custom project site template and deployed it to a few EPT's in my testing environment.

    Everything is working as intended except for the deliverables list. I built the template based on the requirements of the customer, and one of the requirements was to remove the deliverables list from the site.

    I've built the template to not have the deliverables list, but as soon as a new site is created from the template, PS adds the list back in.

    Is this something not supported by PS, or am I missing a step here?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi there,

    When the Project site is created the Project Sites Collaboration list feature will get activated. This will create any lists (Deliverables, Risks, issues and Project Documents) that do not exist on the Project Site.

    Thanks

  • No problem, no there isn't if you want your project sites linked to Project Server projects!

    Thanks

  • I don't want to remove the list completely, I just want to remove the webpart from the page. There is no way to tell PS2010 to stop adding the webpart back in?

  • Hi there,

    You could remove the link from the quick launch links (Site Actions > Site Settings > Navigation, scroll down to Navigation Editing and Sorting and delete the deliverables link). For the web part on the homepage, edit the page and delete the deliverables web part (Site Actions > Edit Page, hover over the Deliverables web part and click delete on the drop down menu).

    The Deliverables list will still be available on the View All Site Content page (Site Actions > View All Site Content).

    Hope that helps
