Enterprise Project Date1-30 (project fields)

Data Type    Date

Entry Type    Calculated or Entered

Description    The Enterprise Project Date1 through Enterprise Project Date30 fields can store any custom project date information as defined by your project management administrator or other user with administrative permissions. These fields are then made available to all users throughout the organization.

How Calculated    Depending on how they were customized, Enterprise Project Date fields might be defined with formulas or other conditions to display specific results.

Best Uses    You can see a list of available enterprise custom project fields and change their values as needed in the Project Information dialog box. You can also add any defined enterprise project field to a task view by adding the project summary task. This is especially useful when working with master projects and subprojects, particularly when you need to filter, sort, or group information in a table.

Example    You are the project management administrator, and you've received requests from project managers for a custom date field to track key project deliverable dates. You define the Enterprise Project Date1 field as the new "Next Deliverable" field. You define the field in the checked-out enterprise global template, and then check it in again to make it available to all users.

You are a project manager, and you see in the Project Information dialog box that there is a new Enterprise Project Date field available: "Next Deliverable" is defined for the Enterprise Project Date1 field. You add the project summary task to the Gantt Chart, and then add the Next Deliverable (Enterprise Project Date1) field.

Remarks    Only someone with permission to save the enterprise global template (for example, your project management administrator) can check out and edit items in the enterprise global template. All users throughout the organization can then view enterprise fields that have been defined and checked in.
