Adding an ECF to a project site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there any way to display an enterprise custom field on a project site?  I have an "Executive Summary" custom field (text) in the PDP and would like to display this field on the project site homepage without having to cut and paste from the PDP every time a new project is created.  I am running Project Online in SP permissions mode.

  • Hi Jim, for Project Online, the only thing I know of is iPMO's Project Fields application. Best contact iPMO directly.  For those reading this with Project Server 2013, FluentPro have a solution starter that enables this.

  • Nice one Paul.  

    Jim, to access oData the user needs to be a member of the Portfolio Viewers group.

  • If you didn't want to use ODATA then you could update the script and use the Project Online REST JSOM api - _api/ProjectServer rather than _api/ProjectData. The code will need to be changed to get the custom fields if you use the REST JSOM API but even then I don't think normal team members will have access to get the custom field information using the REST JSOM API.
