Approval Center : Preview Updates : How can I Preview Task Level Custom Fields values - updated by Resources through My Task RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have few Task level custom field that need to be previewed by PM before Approval in Approval Center--> Preview Updates.There are few custom columns (Target) that has some values before updates and few column (Actual) that have been updated by resources. PM need to compare / preview both before approval.

    I created a view (Task) with all those Task Level custom fields, however they are blank in Preview Update Screen. I could not see any values in those custom columns.

    Later I realize that Task level custom fields updated by Resources can be seen only in Assignment view  and not Task. SO I created an Assignment View where I could see the values ( after publishing) , but PM want to view the before approval / publish ...... and I observed that Assignment Views are not available in drop down list of views in Preview Updates....Approval Center. Now how can I help PM preview all these fields before Approval....

    Is there any way I can query database for submitted / unapproved Assignment  updates and create a report for PM to view  before Approval , or can I create my own Approval Center  Screen.. but this second option seems to be a big task.

    Please share any suggestion on how I may achieve this.

    As you have seen, "Approval Center" page is the most restricted page in PWA, there is no way to customize this page.
