Project Server 2010 How to add another task field that has the same function as the resources field RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am setting up project server 2010 and one of the user requirements is to have an extra resources field in the tasks view(Schedule). So by default, I have a multi select resources field which shows all the members of the project which have been selected when doing the build team. The user requirement is to have another field of the same type (i.e a list of users from build team) to select from but they want to name it something different.

    I have looked at the predefined fields but cannot find it. I have also tried to create an enterprise custom field but no luck.

    Is there a way to do custom development for this.

    Please help.

  • I don't think you can add the same field twice.
    You can add it once and change the name....or you can create a second field
    with a formula of "=[Resource Name]," but the second field will not be editable.

  • Is there a way to create a field that reads from the resource name but is editable during data entry.
     If not, does anyone know a workaround?
