Project Centre Graphical Indicatior Help RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I want to insert a custom field that uses formula & graphical indicators to identify Checked Out Projects, however I cannot find the field to use in the formula 'Checked Out' does not work.    I can add the 'Checked Out' and 'Checked Out By' to a project centre view but the client wants a visual image.

    Thank in advance.

  • Hi there--

    As I remember that fields 'Checked Out' and 'Checked Out By' are in different there in MS project application object model. They are with cancheckin or readonly properties at the Active project Application & from server side, this information is in Draft/Published database. 

    Looks like this will need customization (using a wsp solution with a webpart using PSI to pull info of checked out projects & display an image). You may not be able to use 'Checked Out' and 'Checked Out By' in a formula.

    Hope that helps.
