Custom Fields in Timesheet view RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a custom "Work Remaining" enterprise custom field (Task) that I would like to add to the Timesheet view in PWA.

    However, it is not in the list of available Fields?

    Any idea why this is so?

  • Hi,

    The rule for displaying fields in the available columns can something be not very clear. But a first thing to check is the option of the task custom field to roll down values at assignment level. The timesheet views shows assignment data, so it might require to roll the field down to assignment level.


    Hope this helps,

  • Thanks Guillaume,

    Yes it is very unclear.

    I have the option to roll down selected.

    I have noticed that custom fields of type "Text" are visible, but any that have a formula, or are of cost or number type, are not?

  • It makes some sense. Formulas requires the project to be published. When you create a timesheet, the data are stored in a specific table independant from the project, thus timesheet data should not depend on the project calculation. That being said, this could be done programmatically.

    Hope this helps,
