Summary Tasks on 'Resource Assignments' RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, all

    I'm trying to review tasks' summary tasks on 'Resource Assignments' view on Web App 2010.

    However, I cannot add any field to the view that show the parents (e.g. 'Task Hierarchy' field on My Work view), and 'Summary Tasks' checkbox seems to do nothing.

    Is that a bug? Is there a workaround?

    Thanks,

    Y.

  • Hi Yoavs,

    Unfortunately there is currently no way to include the summary tasks for each task shown on the Tasks page. There is no known workaround either, so the best I can tell you is to be more descriptive in naming tasks so that the team member can distinguish between one task and another. You can also teach your team members to click the name of any task in the My Tasks page to see the Assignment Details page for the task, in which the user can see the Task Path at the top of the page. or you can go for the SSRS to create a report which can show the WBS of summary tasks.

    Hope this helps.

  • Khurram, thanks for your reply.

    Do you know what does 'Summary Tasks' checkbox on 'Resource Assignments' view used for (Web App 2010 --> Resource Center --> Select one or more resources --> Click on Resource Assignments button)? My best guess that it suppose to show the summary tasks; However, it actually does nothing to the view. I've installed April 11 CU, but to no avail.

    Is that one a bug?
