Project Server 2010 - Resource Assignments summary tasks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    This is my first time posting a question, so please bear with me!

    In Project Server 2010, when you go to Project Center, this is what you see, you can see what task is assigned to what resource.  And you can see the summary tasks above it, so you know exactly where the resource will be working, etc. 

    I want to be able to see these same Summary tasks when I click on Resource Assignments for a particular Resource, but this is what I see instead...also, note that 'Summary Tasks' IS checked.

    In Project 2007, on the Resource Assignments screen (for a particular Resource) when you clicked on Summary Tasks, you were able to see all of the summary tasks.

    But no matter what I try in Project Server 2010 , no matter what views or filters I choose, the Summary Tasks in STILL do not appear!  Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks in advance!!

  • I can reproduce this issue, which seems to me like a bug. The Task Hierarchy field is also not available so I don't see a good workaround.

    You could go old school and create a task custom field that is populated via a Project macro. The macro would walk the hierarchy and flattens the task hierarchy into the field, similar to the Task Hierarchy. For example, Summary Task 1>Summary Task 2>Task 1.

    However, it's not pretty and possibly creates other issues.
