We would like to copy the functionality of the Resource field to a custom field that we add RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

     

    What we are trying to achieve is to be able to create a field in task level to behave exactly like the Resource column in Project Server. We would like to copy the functionality of the Resource field to a custom field that we add, should contain people picker option.

     

    Thanks,

    Sunitha

  • Hi Sunitha,

    I am not sure that I understand what you need. If you need custom field like "Owner" field on your PDP, it is not possible to have the exactly the same filed, but you can get something similar. The solution in Microsoft's Solution Starters package has "people picker" functionality:

    Here is some description:

     We would like to copy the functionality of the Resource field to a custom field that we add in an mpp file ie., bind the same values of Resource coloumn in the mpp file.

    Thanks,

  • Hi Sunitha,

    what you could do is using a task level field of type text that uses a value list.

    The value list could be filled automatically by a macro with the resource names for this project.

    By this you would have an additional dropdown field containing the resource names.

    Hope that helps

    Kind regards

    Christoph
