PWA2010 - Disappearing Resource Drop Down List RRS feed

  • Question

  • When we try to add resources to a task that is at the bottom of the project schedule within PWA 2010, the drop down list of resource names from the ERP appears above the task line and when the mouse attempts to move up the list of names, the resource list disappears.  However, for those tasks higher up in the schedule, the list of resource names appear below the task line when clicking the drop down button and all is well.  Weird.

  • Ok - that jogged my memory.  I had an end user experience the same issue with a calendar pop-up.  The window wouldn't display the full calendar.

    Regretfully, I don't know what the solution is, but it seemed to be specific to her machine - i.e. other users didn't seem to have the same issue.  Have you been able to replicate the issue on multiple machines?

  • When that happens, do you have the option to scroll down any further within
    the Webpart?  That's how it works on the PDP pages.

  • No, not without adding a lot of blank task rows.

  • Kathy: If you are referring to the Resource Names column in the Gantt Chart view, then you might try the Task Entry view, which gives you more control and may work better for your display issue.

  • There is no Task Entry view in the PWA Schedule.  I tried all the Tasks views in PWA and the problem is still present.  We have project owners who are only using PWA to manage simple projects.
