Mapping Task fields with Project's Project Site RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello;

    We know that, in project server 2013, project tasks are synchronized with Project's Project Site in Task List. I wonder that, is it possible to map custom task fields with project site? I know that, if project is "sharepoint task list" project, mapping dialog appears on MS Project 2013, but in standard project server projects (enterprise etc.) it is not.

    Any suggestions?

  • No, You can not map Custom task Fields with Project site . When Mapping dialog comes you can only map Default field available in project server not the Custom filed which you have created.

  • HI Burak,

    Project site's are re-designed in Project Server 2013 to look more linked to project, and now you can browse to project site directly from Project context. You can go through this blog post to learn more.

    If your requirement is to see project custom field on Project Site home page or any other page, you have 2 options.

    1. create a SSRS report, fetch your required data in that report, and display that report using reporting web part on your project site's home page.

    2. There is 1 webpart released as part of solution starters for Project Server 2010, Workspace Project Custom Field Web Part. this webpart is exactly created for requirements like yours, however you may need to modify a source code a in order to make it work with PS2013. source code and webpart is available here

    Hope his helps.
