  • Hello,

    How can we change only the "Risk" list ("Category" in fact) in the Project Site Template  (PWA 2010) ?

    Thanks

  • Hi there,

    Take a look at Brian Smith's blog for creating a new template:

  • Paul,

    So we cannot change only the Risk page, we have to edit the whole project site template?

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You will need to create a new site template and set that as the new Project Site template so that all new Project sites include the changes to the Risk list, then manually change the Risk list on all existing sites.

    Thanks

  • Also be aware that you can't remove any of the out of box columns, as this breaks the RDB publish of Risks. You'll start seeing queue jobs faile due to this, every time a project is published. You can only add columns to the Risks (and Issues) list.

    You would then have to use InfoPath to create a custom form to hide whatever columns you don't want to use from the end user.

  • Hi

    I need to modify the risk list form, but when I load it in infopath, it says it can't handle the PwaLinkCustomField, which is the field that takes care of linking the risk item to issues and tasks etc.

    I can edit the form, but when it is published, the link functionality is gone.

    Please advice
