Project Server 2013 – Custom Task Fields Added to Timesheet – Subsequently Lost RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    Has anyone experienced this behavior and/or any suggestions for re-adding the field?

    Scenario:  Using Project Server with focus on Timesheet functionality.  Added a custom task text field with look-up table to represent the accounting code for the task.  Timesheet data aggregated using an Excel Services report attached to the Reporting Database.

    Initial testing using the approach demonstrated in Christophe Fiessinger's Blog post for Project 2010 with success in adding the custom text field.  We were able to see the custom field in the MSP_TimesheetLine_UserViewCF view and used it in the report.  (

    Prior to starting a pilot we performed additional configuration notably including, addition of a Project Flag field, publishing several project and allowing a pilot group to create timesheets.

    Somewhere along the way the custom task field is no longer found in the MSP_TimesheetLine_UserViewCF view per the blog post.  Instead we did acquire the added custom project field.    

    Project Server Version: 15.0.4128.1014

  • Hi I am finding this behavior in project server 2013 now. Has this been fixed.

    I created a timesheet view added a custom task field to it, the permissions were for my organization but when I go to the timesheet page I cannot see the view in the views dropdown.

  • I had the same problem, but I only needed to move to a new timesheet period.

  • I have seen this issue over a year ago and it was fixed with a CU.  I cant recall which one it was, so I would recommend that you apply project server CU that have been released at least a year ago.
