values for enterprise custom fields RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I defined an enterprise custom field with a formula. I took the field in the custom view. But I doesn't see the values.

    After editing a project in the web app and save the project detail page I see the value for this project but not for the others.

    Why? Is it possible to see the values without editing the project detail pages in the web app and saving them?

    Thanks and regards

  • Hi Murol

    When you create a new formula custom field, the values need to be calculated.

    This happens when you edit the project in pwa or project professional.

    So edit is needed to update the formula custom field.

    This makes perfect sense since the project is not changed at all, without the end-user editing it.

    "This happens when you edit the project in pwa or project professional."

    --> Remark: it doesn't happen by editing in MS Project Professional
