Are Enterprise Custom Fields with formulas broken in Project Server 2013? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We're running Project Server 2013 SP1 with the April 2014 CU. We're doing some validation to prepare for migration from Project Server 2010 to 2013. We've got a few enterprise project custom fields that have formulas. In 2010, if you edit the fields via pdp that feed the formulas and then save, the formulas calculate and the new values are displayed in the PDP. These calculations don't seem to be working in 2013.

    I decided to dumb it down a little and made a pretty basic formula. This one will populate after simply clicking edit and save on a PDP in 2010. It is not populating in 2013. It's a project text field with the following formula: IIf(1 = 1, "Yes", "No")

    Any suggestions?

  • With a Project Online instance, I couldn't reproduce your issue..

    Is the field updating correctly when you go directly in MS Project Pro? Custom fields with formulas have always been source of issues.


    Hope this helps,

    Unfortunately, forcing a calculation (F9) and  saving in Project Pro seems to have no impact.

  • One of my coworkers had the same problem. He filed a bug report and this got fixed with October 2014 cu. But there is still an open issue with the same behavior on task custom fields. The already provided fix for custom fields on project level explains why it does not happen in Project Online.
