Project Professional 2010...Adding Issues & Risks RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm sure this is so simple and I'm overlooking it.  How do you add a risk (or issue) directly to a task within project professional?  I know how to add it throught the team site and tie it to a task.  But, I really need the ability to add these directly to the task line in project professional.

  • Thank you for the quick response.  So what I understand you to say, are risks and issues are associuated to the tasks in a schedule by way of PWA (selecting the project from project center, navigating to schedule PDP).  I noticed after I added a risk there and then opened the schedule in Project Professional to edit...there's no mention of a risk or icon.  Its this correct to say...A schedule must be published; all risks/issues are entered in one of two ways (thru Sharepoint Site or on schedule in PWA).  :)
