Problem with custom field in master project RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I've created a master project consisting of 3 subprojects, I usually manage the projects from the master project.

    My tasks are all defined as fixed work/effort driven, an all work estimated are entered in hours (to avoid confusion since all the resources working are part time)

    Now I would like to show the remaining work in days. I’ve tried to display the field remaining work, but unfortunately I am unable to find anywhere to alter the formatting from hours to days.

    I’ve tried creating a custom text field for tasks ([Remaining Work]/60/8 & " Days"), but after creation only values at the project level is shown. To validate what I am doing, I’ve tried to create a similar field at the individual projects, and here the outcome is just as I wanted it to be.

    Can anyone point me to a possible solution (or where I’ve made an error)?

    Btw. I did the sub/master-projects in the first place to be able to show the different project names in the resource views (the projects are not that big/complex by themselves)

    Thanks in advance,
