Display name of the fields in PWA view RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can I have the display name in PWA?

    Now, project server provides the custom fields like "Work", "Remaining Work", but in the current organization, we use the "Budget", "ETC" as the display name, so we would like to change the built-in field names. But I cannot find a way to define a display name for the fields.

    We could define the "Title" for the field in Project Plan, but I do not find similar functionalities in PWA view, and the only way I could think is to create calculated field. But I am not sure the potential performance impact.

    Do you have another way to define this?

    Thanks.

  • Hi KevinLi,

    You can achieve this by setting a custom label for the field in the view.

    • Go to 'Server Settings' > 'Manage Views'
    • Open the view you want to update
    • Select one of the 'Displayed fields' and fill in the 'Custom Label' field

    Hope this helps
