Notes field in Schedule RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using Project Server 2010, I've added the "Notes" field to a view under the Project section in Server Settings > Look & Feel > Manage Views as the end user wants a Notes field on the schedule so she can enter notes about tasks.

    When I edit the schedule in PWA, the Notes field is disabled and you can't enter anything in the field. However, if I open the schedule in Project Pro, I can enter text in the Notes field. I then saved the schedule & viewed it through PWA and the note entered through Project Pro was there. However, again the field was disabled and not editable through PWA.

    Can a user enter notes on a task directly from the schedule in PWA? The user does not have Project Pro and the task is not assigned to anyone (using Project Server at a very basic level). Thank you.

  • Hi there,

    Unfortunately this field is read-only in PWA.

  • Thank you, Paul. Is there a list somewhere that tells which fields are not editable in PWA?

    Also, would you possibly have any other suggestions for a work around for this? I can teach my user how to use Project Pro but was hoping not to go there ....

    Appreciate the quick reply.

  • Hello,

    Team members can added notes to the task on the Tasks page. If that users clicks on the task name in the tasks page to go to the task details page, at the bottom of that page they can enter notes in the notes section. Displayed below.

    Hope that helps

  • I was really hoping to see the note from within the schedule in PWA. It looks like we will have to enter the note through Project Pro for that. Thanks Paul!
