Project Server Custom Filter Drop Down RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the Project Center (my environment has thousands of projects), I have users who rely heavily on the drop down for custom filters. Often times they are filtering on several different owners maybe 20+, so it is time consuming to set up. From time to time, it seems random, these filters will get erased or deleted and the user has to go back in set up their filters all over again. 

    Does anyone know why this happens? Is there an action that would trigger this? Were these filters intended to stick as long as you want or is there a time limit? Is there anything I can tell users to do to keep these filters as long as they want?

  • The view resets, generally under two scenarios:

    1) The view is changed by the admin from Server Settings. Even adding a column, or removing one will cause the view to reset.

    2) The user deletes the local browser cache.

    It might be a good idea to develop a report which the users can use navigate to the projects, instead of having to use the custom filter.
