Indicators are not displayed in PWA Project View on Project Server 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have Project Server 2007 SP2 with SQL Server 2008 SP2 and Clients (Project Pro 2007 SP2 and PWA SP2 on Windows-64bit) implemented. On PWA Project View, any Project views contain "Indicators" column at the left-most as system default, but it does not show any indicators except project information at project summary task. No other indicators (Completed indicator, Note indicator, Constraint indicator, and Leveling indicator) are displayed in the Indicator column. How can we make all the other Indicators shown in the Indicators column just as in Project Professional? all the custom indicators in custom fields are displayed just fine.

    Good question, my friend!  I hate to tell you this, but the only indicators you will be able to see in the Indicators column in the Project Center view or Detailed Project views are the indicators for Risks, Issues, and Documents.  There is no way to force the Indicators column to show the information that the same column shows in the Microsoft Project 2007 desktop client.  Hope this helps.

  • Hi Dale,

    Do you know off-hand if it is still the case in version 2013 of Project Professional?  Can we still not see related risk and issues icons in the Indicators column in Pro 2013?  I tried and did not see any icons, but I am wondering if it is just that perhaps I did something wrong, etc.

    I hate to disappoint you, my friend, but Project Pro 2013 still does not display indicators for Risks, Issues, and Documents when used with Project Server 2013 or Project Online.  Sorry.  Hope this helps.
