Default value in Custom Field RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created a Project level ECF, and set with a Lookup table.

    I have chosen a value from Lookup table (by using Default value) - also mark check at "Choose a value to use as a default when adding new items" But when I go for creating a new project via PWA, that ECF does not show default value.

    Regards,

  • Hi Noman,

    Indeed I can confirm that in Project Online, if you select multiple values for a project custom field in the project creation page, it is not retain. This is probably a bug and you could create a support request to Microsoft.

    Note that the bug appears only if you have a default value.

    A workaround is to keep the project creation page as simple as possible with the default cutom fields and enter the additional information in a subsequent project detail page.


    Hope this helps,

  • Strange enough, after having edited the custom field, unselect the default value option, save the field and set it again with the default value, I cannot replicate anymore the bug..

    Can you confirm?
