Corresponding Task Level Custom Field to Project level Custom Field RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear community members, 

    Is there any way to automatically update an ECF (Enterprise Custom Field) in Task level once a related ECF in Project Level is changed?
    To detail the scenario: there is a field called: “Sponsor Name” for the project and we created a field in task level with the same name, now I’m looking for an automated way that updates the task level “Sponsor Name” field if we change the related field in project level.

    I assume if we used on-premise solution we could update those fields on the database by using some SQL commands; but since we are using Microsoft Project Online; in a cloud platform this is not an option.
    Any idea to facilitate this requirement would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Naser

  • Never done it, but you might be able to trigger a workflow update.   You might have to go through the API to do it.  Here is a link for something similar.   https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/projectserver/en-US/0f9c56e2-8be3-46bb-aa6d-a4b29ef8bc73/project-online-rest-api-to-add-a-task-to-project?forum=projectonline
