Project Task Pane App - Advanced actions: changing views, filter tasks and running macros RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi there,

    I have the requirement to add a help pane to Project 2013 that will guide the users to do certain things. It's really easy to implement using a Task Pane app, but now I have found that I need to perform some advanced actions such:

    • Changing the current view when the user clicks a link in the task pane.
    • Run a macro.
    • Filter some tasks based on a certain condition.

    I'm finding that this may not be possible to do with task pane apps and was wondering if it's possible or not and if not, which would be the best option to do this.

    I have been reading about VSTO but i'm not sure it this is still an option in 2013 and if I will be able to meet my requirements with it.

    Any ideas will be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
