How to modify the timesheet webpart RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    It's our first time trying to modify something in PWA.

    Our task description is very long, so users have trouble to see everything in the timesheet web part.

    Is it possible to change the webpart to put the text on 2 lines or more if it's longer than...

    Did someone have tried this before?

    Best Regards,

  • I haven't seen anyone ask for that specific requirement.
    I would advise solving it through a combination of custom fields/codes, the
    WBS code and the Unique ID field.  That will help users identify where the
    task belongs.

  • Ok,

    We have the Task Hierarchy field in the timesheet so user can know where the tasks are in the project.

    Our problem is that the task / task hierarchy description are very long. So they have to change their view setup. Maybe some html code or editing the web part could resolve the problem ?

  • One solution: You can go to manage views in PWA server settings, Timesheet & edit the view, once you select the field in displayed list , By default the field width is 100, You can set this to 200 or so.

    Alternate solution,  You may use the Content editor webpart for Jquery & use the id = "ctl00_m_g_112c7598_25c4_4596_a4ee_e852a68a0060_TimesheetPartJSGridControl_0_3" & check the title as "<ColumnName>"& set the Width as 200px or desired.

    Hope this helps.
