Display Summary Tasks % Complete in Project Center View RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    Thanks in advance if you can help.

    We have a specific summary task called "Delivery" that captures significants parts of our projects.  We desire to display its % complete value in a Project Center view column.  The "Delivery" summary task rolls up the percent complete from its child tasks. 

    We have done the following:

    1. Set a task level flag to identify the "Delivery" summary task
    2. Created an enterprise text task field called "Delivery Percent-TASK" to store the % complete of the identified summary task 
    3. Created an enterprise text project field called Delivery Percent-PROJ" (equals the "Delivery Percent-TASK" enterprise task field)
    4. Placed the Delivery Percent-PROJ field in a Project Center view definition
    5. Saved an published a few schedules with the flag and values set

    The column returns a blank value

    We then created the fields above (non-flag) as numbers.  Still received a blank value in the column. 

    Any help is appreciated.

  • Hello Rob,

    Do you see values for Delivery Percent-Proj field in Project Professional? Just want to make sure we are getting correct values in Project client.

    Thank you,

  • Hi Rob,

    As Kiran suggests, I'd advice to go through steps 1 to 5 and to check if every steps is behaving as expected:

    1. is your flag working correctly?
    2. is the text task field returning the % complete of the flagged task correctly?
    3. is the text project field returning the % complete correctly? Ensure to have some values for your test and publish the project. Check for the project field in Project Pro and in PWA (in a test PDP for example).

    Then you'll be able to point out the culprit and find a proper correction to your issue.

    Hope this helps.
