More options for team members creating tasks RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are using Project Server 2013 and in some Projects that are actually handling operative work rather than Projects, such as application management, there is a need of several stakeholders to be able to create and enter new tasks. Letting them all on in PRO is not viable, so I thought they could go to the tasks page Quick launch >> Tasks >> Add row >> Add a new task in order to indicate the work they want done by the Project team.

    This works ok, but the only data I can enter in this method is where in the Project plan hierarchy the new task should be created and when it should start.

    Is there any way to add more columns here, for the team member to fill out, so this task will not fall on the Project manager?

    No, there is no way to add more columns.  The assumption by Microsoft is that team members should only be able to supply a minimal amount of information for new proposed tasks, and then it is up to the PM to approve the new tasks and to add more detail to those tasks.  Hope this helps.
