Manual creation of Project Site for a project is taking old project site template. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    I have modified the project site and save it as a template to associate it with an EPT so that the modification will reflect in new project sites.

    For existing projects, I am deleting the old project sites (after taking backup) and recreating so that new modifications will be there for existing projects and I am able to do so.

    But, for 1 of the project, when I have deleted the project site and recreated, still it is taking the old template (i.e. new modifications has not been seen).

    Kindly advice in some areas so that I can jump in and around and can find out a solution so that the project site will take modified project template.

    Example to get the issue in an easy way:

    ProjectA:

    Project Site: http://epm/pwa/ProjectA

    Issue List:

    Column: Category [data type as Choice: Cat1, Cat2, Cat3]

    Have saved 1 project site as a template and associated with an EPT with the following changes:

    Column: Category [data type as Choice: Choice1, Choice2, Choice3]

    Then, deleted the project site: http://epm/pwa/ProjectA and recreated.

    So, it should take the modifications in the project site.

    But, it is showing as Column: Category [data type as Choice: Cat1, Cat2, Cat3].

    Regards,

  • Here's another way to create the site

    From PWA

    1) Site Settings

    2) Sites and Workspaces

    3) Create the new site using the template

    4) Go to PWA/ Server Sites

    5) Project Sites and Provision

    6) Find the project schedule, edit the link and past new link in URL

    cheers!

  • Hi,

    Which Project Server version do you use?

    It is working well and as expected for all projects except for 1 specific project?

    Has this project something particular?

    How do you proceed to create the new project site? Do you go to the site actions, then new site and pick up your new template?


    Hope this helps,

  • Dear Guillaume,

    Thanks for your response.

    Please seem my comments inline:

    Which Project Server version do you use?

    PS 2010

    It is working well and as expected for all projects except for 1 specific project?

    Yes. It is working well for other projects except 1 project.

    Has this project something particular?

    Nope. It is similar as other projects.

    How do you proceed to create the new project site? Do you go to the site actions, then new site and pick up your new template?

    First I have modified 1 of the project site and saved that site as a template.

    Then, I have deleted the existing project site (from Project Sites under Operational Policies) and recreated so that project site will gets created from the new template. But, it's not happening.

  • Hi Michael,

    Thanks for your response.

    I have done what you have suggested. And the solution works for Issues and Risks or any of the existing libraries/lists.

    But, my requirement is bit different from this.

    Let me tell you the exact requirement in other post:

    Request you to follow the below URL:
