Deliverables, issues. risks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Are the Deliverables, issues. risks lists in the main EPM site related in any way to the instances in the various worksites?

    I expected to see them roll up, but that is not happening.

  • Issues and risks roll up insofar as any that are assigned to you will show up in the main PWA site on the Reminder Webpart, and in the Quick Launch link on the left which displays how many are assigned to you.

    Deliverables don't roll up, but are connected to specific tasks within project plans that are stored within the Server.

    If you look in the BI Center, you should see a couple of sample reports that roll up Risks, Issues, and probably Deliverables - although I can't recall offhand.

    Does that answer your question?

  • Your best bet there would be to implement enterprise content types for Risks,
    Issues and Deliverables, then either use a custom solution or the Content
    Query WebPart to aggregate them up.

  • It does, indirectly. I was asking about the SP lists in the main site. Evidently they are standalone lists, not synched with anything. For Enterprise-wide risks and issues, I suppose.<input id="gwProxy" type="hidden" /><input id="jsProxy" onclick="if(typeof(jsCall)=='function'){jsCall();}else{setTimeout('jsCall()',500);}" type="hidden" />

  • Followup question:

     

    I've created deliverables via ProjectPro, and they show up in the SharePoint list for that project. The default fields of Description, Deliverable Start, and Deliverable finish are populated. On the edit webpart page it says that displaying percent complete and predecessors are optional - that you should add them to the list columns if you want them.

    I did that and the fields show up now in the gantt view, but are not populated from ProjectPro.

    Is this the expected behavior? ie, the %complete and predecessors have to be manually updated in PWA?

  • Yes, thanks. That or excel services. Or both. But not all that necessary - I was just wondering what the intent was of the upper level ones. I'm trying to stick to learning the intended use before going off too far into rolling my own!<input id="gwProxy" type="hidden" /><input id="jsProxy" onclick="if(typeof(jsCall)=='function'){jsCall();}else{setTimeout('jsCall()',500);}" type="hidden" />

     

    Any idea why every post I enter gets trailing html added?

  • ...or Powerpivot.  What browser or client are you using to post?  My guess
    is it's not IE 7 or higher.
