Custom Fields and Formulas in PWA RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on creating a new view in our PWA/Project Center instance. Here are the details:

    1. Created custom DATE field in project server settings via PWA (this field is manually updated on the project detail page)
    2. Created a formula to calculate which quarter of the year this custom date field falls in. I created the fomula in a text field in MS Project.
    3. Can I create this same formula in server settings in PWA to calculate the quarter?
    4. Or do I need to just make the formula field an enterprise task field and create a view in PWA that includes that field?

    Is it possible to create custom formulas in PWA using custom fields?

  • Which version of Project Server are you using?

    Yes, it is possible to create custom formulae for custom fields in PWA. However, the calculations will not happen until the project is opened and republished.
