Custom fields in the Tasks view RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a requirement to display a custom field in the My Assignments view.  We created a task level text custom field expecting it to display against the task.  However, it appears that because it is an assignment view task level custom fields will not populate.  I realise that this is an assignment based view and therefore cannot expect to see the values against individual assignments

    Does anyone have any suggestions? 

    Thanks

  • How did you set the custom field to calculate for assignment rows?  If you select it to "roll down to assignment" then you should see it for each task (really, each assignment) in assignment views.  I just validated this in my 2007 system with a custom task field I have setup this way.
