Is there a way to display tasks from the project site under the "My Work" section tasks in Project server 2010? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to see if there is a view I can create to allow project member to see all tasks under one view regardless if they are in the project plan or a task on the project site.

  • Hi Dallas,

    You would need to create a report using reporting services (Report Builder). The report will extract the tasks from the project sites (there is an option in Report Builder to define a datasource based on a SharePoint list).

    It will be a little bit more complicated if you want to query the task list across multiple project sites

    The report can be configured then to be displayed on the MyWork page.

    But, before trying the report option ... I just had a thought that there is another option: you can try to use the content query webpart: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/sharepoint-2010s-content-query-web-part.html

    Try to add this webpart to the My Work page and use the task list and a filter like: Assigned to equal [Me].

    Hope this helps

  • Hi Dallas,

    You can either:

    - create a custom webpart to display all user's tasks

    - create a report to display the project site(s) tasks and add it to the My work page

    - add the schedule webpart to the project site task page

    Hope this helps
