    No, it is not possible to modify any of the sets of details you see in the Resource Form view.  Sorry.  Hope this helps.

  • Hi Dale, thank you so much for your info. I understand the set of details in the Resource Form view can not be edited but is it possible to create a custom view based on Resource Form view and add an additional field? If so, can the data be pulled in with a custom macro?

    Also, not sure if this is the correct forum for this question but I'll try anyway. I have timesheet data from a third party source being imported into project. In the Gantt view, actual work data from the external source is allocated for a certain percentage and the resource is allocated for a predefined set of hours. The issue is if the percentage is changed the end date is pushed out. Any idea what may be causing this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    No, it is not possible to create a custom Resource Form view and put your own details into the custom view, even if you use a macro.
     
    Regarding the second problem, I think you need to talk to your third party software provider about the problems you are seeing.  Hope this helps.
