Cannot edit enterprise fields "in edit mode". They are not WF controlled RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have one PM that can open a PDP in edit mode.  But cannot edit any of the fields.  She clicks in the field and tries to type and nothing happens.  Just for kicks, I added her to Administrators for PWA (SP Permissions mode).  So she can see the "Edit" button on the PDP and it appears to go into edit mode.  But cannot type in any fields.

    The enterprise field is NOT controlled by WF.

    Anyone else seen this one?  Or am I going crazy???

  • Hello,

    Has the user tried another browser / device? I guess it's something local on that users machine?

  • Yea, I thought the same thing.  She can click on Project/Edit to enter edit mode, no problem.  So one would think she could begin editing fields.  But nope.  Cannot edit fields.  Works on other projects though.  She is in Portfolio Managers for Project Web App group. 

    When I added her to Administrators for Project Web App group, now she can not only enter Project/Edit mode on the PDP, but now she can edit the fields.

    I think it's typical SharePoint Permissions Mode issues.  Opened a ticket with MS.

  • When the user is in just the Portfolio Managers group, can that user open and edit the project in Project Online Desktop client? Can the user edit the schedule on the schedule PDP? We never have customers using the SharePoint permission mode, it's always the Project Permission mode.
