"Category" field in the "Summary" view of Project Centre (2013) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    What is this "Category" field we can insert in the Summary view of Project Center. I dragged several projects in a specific security Category (Project Server permission mode) but this field is always empty.

  • Hi,

    We can specify additional project properties while creating new project. This "category" field is part of those additional information. You can find value for this field in Project Center if you set the value while creating a project. Below are the steps.

    1) Create new Project

    2) Click on file >> Info >> Click on "Project Information" >> Advance Properties.

    3) Under summary tab, you can find "category" field. Once you set the value and publish the project, you will see the value in Project Center for category field.

    So this category field has different purpose and will not display the security category.

    Hope this helps.


    Thank you,

    Kiran K.
