Defining "Project Task" views within a "Business Project" window



  • 1. BCM 2010 Locking up my system
    I currently have Office Professional 2010 Plus installed along with BCM 2010. After 2 weeks of seemingly successful running, my system seems to have been taken over by BCM with a continued update of Contacts from BCM. When this synchronization takes place (every 3-5 minutes) the system locks up and the disk drive thrashes for 6-8 minutes with the message ""updating Contacts". While that process sis taking place, I cannot utilize any of Outlook. Is there a patch, and update, something that will allow me to continue to use BCM without completely flogging the sysem? Dan
  • 2. Company name in Business Projects
    OK, here's the deal... I have created several Business Projects in BCM2007, and have linked them to specific Business Accounts. Because I do projects for multiple companies, when I access the list of Business Projects - I would like to see the company to which they are linked. The logical thing to do would be to add the "Company" field to the columns of the list - which I did - but the column is blank... no Company name is listed. So I go back into the Project - to see where the Company name is shown - but there is no field for Company name in the Business Project screen. Nor are there fields for "Contacts" or "Requested By" - both of which are column choices in the Business Projects list page. So... my questions are these: 1) WHERE does the "Company" column selection pull from in the Business Projects form? 2) How can I get that column to populate in the Business Projects list? 3) Or am I completely on drugs and looking at this wrong? HELP!?!?!?!?!?!?!
  • 3. Restoring BCM .MDF file
    After reformating my disc (Windows 7) I loaded Outlook 2010. I then tried to link to my old MDF (BCM 2007) file but it wont even recognise it exists. Suspect this might be related to changes in the MDF file from 2007. Any suggestions would really be appreciated?
  • 4. Restore bcm project from backup
    Somehow someone in our office deleted some projects from bcm. We have offsite nightly backups but are looking for a way to just restore a single project(or projects) from the backup copy. Is there a way to restore a single project from a backup of bcm? At this point i'm told we can only backup the entire bcm database, not just the projects that were accidentally deleted. any info appreciated
  • 5. BCM Contact Question

Defining "Project Task" views within a "Business Project" window

Postby SmVmZg » Wed, 12 Nov 2008 09:50:00 GMT

I have become fairly familiar and competent with defining views in BCM. 
However, there's one view I have not be able to define AND make it stick.

Within an open Business Project window, I go to the bottom area of the 
window where the Project Tasks are located. However, the Project Tasks are 
not organized in a view that I want. I can right click on the Project Task 
header and customize the view, but as soon as I leave the page and come back, 
the view goes right back to what it was before I changed it.

Normally you can simply define a view a save it. However, in this case the 
hard part is that since you must have the Business Project page open to see 
this view, there is no way to access View > Current View > Define View as the 
same time. In other words, you can only be on one page or the other so it's 
impossible to save the view that was just made within the Business Project 

Any suggestions?

2.Customizing task view within project form

I've followed Clinton Ford's instructions to customize the projects and tasks 
on the BCM home page and it works great.  Can someone tell me how to do the 
same thing on the project form itself?  The list of tasks always returns to 
the original view - which doesn't even show due date.  I can't seem to locate 
how to get the changes to the view to "stick" in that form.  Thx project/Outlook 2007-link email to business projects
