  • Hello Michael, why don't you insert the web part "Project Sites", which you can find in the section "Project Web App"? It displays a list of all the project sites available. No customization - just configuration.

  • Thanks for the Suggestion Julian,

    It would be perfect if we should somehow mash that and the Project Centre webpart together :)

    I was thinking, could there be some way to prepopulate an ECF with a hyperlink to the Project Site and simply add that EFC into the Project Centre view.

    Do you think that could be a possibility?

    Regards

    Michael

  • Hi Michael,

    yes that is also possible. You need the create a ECF and "calculate" the url with a formula. JavaScript will make a hyperlink out of it.

  • Hi Julian,

    That would pretty much be perfect!

    Taking a shot in the dark here, but do know of anything online that you refer to as a reference or at least a something similar?

    Regards

  • Hello Michael,

    you'll need to calculate the text field like this: <a href="http:yoururl.com/whatever" target="_blank">Project Site</a> Then use pure JavaScript, or JQuery to make a hyperlink out of it.

    Some Examples:

    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3060055/link-in-input-text-field

    I also found this no-code solution from ppmworks:

    Maybe that's also an option for you!

  • I think this exists in Project Server 2016 - can't check at the moment, click the ellipsis in the Project Name cell, that will open a card, click the ellipsis on that card then click "Go to Project Site".
