  • Hasan,

    You have few options, based on the route you want to take"

    1) You could control the "Visbility" of the fields, via using a feature like Target Audiences . However,this may not  control the same custom field on the page based on user permissions.

    2) Use JavaScript: https://badalratra.wordpress.com/2013/05/04/how-to-disable-pdp-custom-fields-using-javascript/

    3) Jquery: http://epmainc.com/blog/locking-custom-fields-pdp-project-server-2013-using-jquery

    4) Customization: https://epmxperts.wordpress.com/2014/01/20/secure-pdp-pages-as-per-project-server-security/

    5) You could look into a third part product, by Fluent Pro: https://help.fluentpro.com/pdp_manager/start

    I realize these may not be exactly what you need, but with some effort, I am sure you could modify the code and reuse.

    Point first i was enable but this has only work with PDP page,but what about MSP case,under MSP every field have editable.

  • Hasan,

    I do not know of a direct way to disable editing in Microsoft Project. A workaround would be to set these fields as "Workflow Controlled" (even if you are not using workflows). This will completely disable editing the field via MSP, but will still allow b edited via PWA. And then you can apply one of the methods above to complete your original requirement.
