Rename enterprise custom fields RRS feed

  • Question

  • I use Project online 2013.

    I'd like to rename the enterprise custom fields "Project Category" and "Project Sub Category" to something shorter. The reason is that I group my projects by Project Department, Project Category and Project Sub Category and the names are too long.

    Any suggestions?

  • Hi,

    There is no issue in renaming an enterprise custom field since it will keep its GUID. Just go to the server settings, enterprise custom fields, select the field to edit it and rename it.

    The limitation I can see is if you have reports with SQL queries which point to the field name and not GUID. In this case you'll need to adjust your SQL queries.


    Hope this helps,
