  • 1. Check If any filter is applied form Project center ribbon.

    2. Ask Project Manager to Open the project then check whether that user is present in project team or not if yes then ask him to publish the project plan.

    3. IF user himself is project manager ask him to open project from MPP then publish it.  

    Open MPP connect to project server --- then form enterprise project list select the project name then save and publish the project also ask him to assign one task to user who is not able to see the project link.

    Ask admin to check whether project got deleted accidentally.

  • Hi John,

    We would need some more details.

    Which version of Project are you using? Server or not? Are you talking about PWA or Project Pro? Which view is concerned by the issue: Gantt or usage views? Are you talking about inter projects links or about enterprise resources assignments among various projects on the server?

    With more details, we'll be pleased to help you.

  • We are using Project Server 2010 ?

    and talking about Project Professional 2010 connected with Project Server 2010 ?

    and assignments linked with different projects on the PROJECT column.

    view is Gantt Chart.

  • Hi John,

    When you start project pro, you should have a dialog box that allows choosing the server connection. You have in this dialog box a checkbox allowing loading resources assignments on all server's projects. Checking it will displayresources assignments on other projects than the active ones.

    Another clue is in the file, option dialog box: you can check the option to display or not external predecessors.

    Hope this helps.

  • Jhon,

    In resource assignment view check whether project name is available in Timesphased Data view also change the Time period then check.

    After changing the time period check in grantt chart.

    Check if nay Custom filter is applied.

    select Summary  Task, Work and Overtime work.

    Check if task got completed and their is not remaining work then it will not display the project name and task.

    Also open the project plan and check whether that user is assigned to the task or not.

    In File, options, advanced, you'll find a section on links options with projects. You have checkboxes that will allows displaying external successors and predecessors.
