How could be calculated a custom field automatically? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created a project custom field which has an IIf formula and calculates %complete variance and shows graphical result. I know it must be calculated when I publish project; but it does not. I'd like it be calculated automatically in specific periods.

  • The calculation is done when you actually edit and publish the project plan.

    If you are publishing from Project pro, confirm that you have the calculation to be set to on (or hit F9 to force a recalculate).

    If you are publishing from PWA, click on the Calculate button on the schedule before publishing.

  • Dear Prasanna,

    Our PMs publish project from PWA. In addition, project plan is calculated automatically when it is published. Maybe I don't describe the problem clearly. I want custom field calculated and populated automatically in weekly or monthly periods either project managers publish or don't publish their projects.
