Project Server 2013 - daily comments in PWA RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all, 

    I'm working on configuring two last tasks for a Project Server 2013 deployment (which can be upgraded to 2016 if it includes the needed features I am looking for).  I'll separate these into two different posts to keep thing clean.

    This post will focus on the need of end users - Users who submit time into PWA need an option to add a comment *per day*.  So being able to click/right click on a day and add a comment is needed.

    Can this be done in PWA?

    Any other details needed to answer I can happily provide.

    The option to add a comment per day on the Timesheet page is not a built-in feature of Project Server, but you can find an app from Projectum that will handle this need very nicely:

    Hope this helps.

  • Hello Browning

    Check with Dale's solution.  

    Comments are overwritten in project server database, so I found it useless for any log history.  Check out my blog for more details

  • I appreciate your comment, but quietly marking this as an answer is not helpful to the conversation.

    Projectum wants a significant amount of money for a non-profit client of mine to do this.  Further, said company you recommended has been anything but helpful in obtaining a trial key to test their product in my deployment.  They have been in relatively constant touch which is commendable, but with little to show for their messages.  Asking them nicely for assistance on the large cost for a non-profit resulted in a message stating that they were only inevitably raising their price in the near future to pressure a purchase from me.  Not a nice way to approach business when a simple 'no' would have been nicer.

    Any other comments or suggested add ins would be appreciated.

    Edit: I've asked another question that may dramatically lower the overall cost over here, and if it works, I will gladly take the previous mention of the add-in as the answer.
