Add double task name field on PWA view RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have created a view in the PWA for projects (in the detailed project view)

    since I have many culmns in this view - when the user go to the last culmn - he cannot see on what task he is updating information.

    1. is there an option to freeze pane?

    2. If not, I would like to add a culmn with task name in the end of the line - how can I do iy? I have added a culmn I created with [task name] but it doesnt work in the PWA (ir works in the PRO. dont know why)

     

    Thanks,

    Hanni

  • Hi Hanni,

    Ans #1: Unfortunately freeze pane is not possible on PWA. the few things you can try is either to split the same view in two view OR export the view to excel and there off course you can have more options to view the data with ease.

     

    Ans #2: I believe you have create a custom field to save and display the task name so that you can use in your PWA view, please correct me if i am wrong?

    1. You have to open the project in MSP,
    2. insert the custom field in the project plan,
    3. calculate the field (use F9) and
    4. publish the project (changes will not take effect unless you publish the project)

     

    Try this and hope it will help you view the required result in PWA.

  • #2 - you mean to do this in the Professional or in the PWA? (F9 does not work for me in the PWA)

  • Yes mate the steps i have mentioned need to be done in Professional. Basically when ever you create any new formula custom field, it will only show you the results when you re-publish the project.

    Let me know if it help.
