Microsoft Project Server 2010 includes a new way to help narrow down the amount of data users can see, based on their departments. You can assign departments to custom fields, and those fields will only be available to users who are part of the corresponding departments.

  1. On the Quick Launch, click Server Settings.

  2. Under Enterprise Data, click Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Tables.

  3. In the Enterprise Custom Fields table, click the name of an existing custom field, or click New Field to create a new custom field.

  4. On the Edit Custom Field or New Custom Field page, in the Department section, click the button next to the Department field, and then click the name of a department to select it.

  5. If you are creating a new custom field, complete each of the appropriate sections on the page.

  6. Click Save to save the custom field, with the departmental association.
