  • Hi Danson,

    The ReadResource method will return a number of datasets, the one you probably need to look at is the ResourceCustomFields dataset that will show what custom field values are assigned to the resource. This will only be populated if you have configured Resource Custom Fields.

    If you are trying to determine the Project Manager of a project schedule by virtue of the schedule itself, check the Project Owner field which you should be able to get from the ReadProject method and the resultant ProjectDataSet.

    As for getting the date a task was last modified, the ReadProject method retrieves a task data set that includes the CREATED_DATE and MOD_DATE fields. Likewise the ReadResource method, ResourceDataSet has a CREATED_DATE and MOD_DATE field which should assist.

    Hope this helps,
