Addition of custom links on Project Details screen to update Project RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I request help to implement a customization in Ms Project Server 2010. I would like to add a custom link on lefthand side menu of Project Details page. The link would display a page with key fields. On entering information in the fields and clicking Submit, a custom code that triggers MS SharePoint 2010 workflow should be triggered.

    The user triggering the workflow will only have read access to the Project. I would like to get technical information and code snippets to implement the requirement. Any help in this regard would be appreciated.

  • Hi,

    I'm not a developer thus I'll let other folks jump in but I'd have 2 comments:

    1. If the user triggering the workflow needs to enter values in custom fields and do kind of a save operation as per your description, he cannot have only read access to the project. He needs a read-write access.
    2. Note that folks on this forum kindly give on their spare time to help the community about concerns, questions and issues on Project. What you are asking for looks like more to a consultation request (due to the fact that you are not yet facing any issues since you haven't even started working on it), meaning what we do in our daily job (and are paid for). Hope some colleagues can anyway give you some tracks to start.

    Hope this helps,

  • Hi,

    I am looking for help in development not design. I am facing the access issues after developing the component.

    I would like to launch a SPList item like inteface and pass some values from Link. Updates to custom field can be done programatially using impersonization.

    I am looking for help to implement the above mentioned change.
