  • 1. "save as" enterprise project w/out opening it
    I have a couple large published projects I'd like to "save as" on a daily basis. The reason I want to do this is because if I need a file from tape backup it often takes 1-2 weeks. The only way I know to "save as" a project on the project server is to first open it. Is there a way to "access" and "save as" the file w/out first opening it? -- Jesse

  • 3. Retrieve Project Task ID in WSS
    Hi, Is there a way to reference the Task from a custome field that I want to create in the Project Workspace. For example I want to be able to link items in an item list with tasks in the project, just like I can link risks and issues to tasks. Also can I retrive properties of a task in this way (such as start, finish etc) ... Thanks Ian
  • 4. can a resource close a milestone task in PWA timesheet?
    I have a couple large project schedules with close to 1,000 milestones. I can assign milestone tasks to resources so they show up on their tasklist. The time tracking setting on the Project Server is actual work done and work remaining. The milestone task is 0 work done and 0 work remaining. The only way I've found to close the task is to add time to work remaining then input that same time to actual work done. This will change it to 100% and close the task. However it's no longer a milestone since the duration is not 0. Do you know a way for a resource to close a milestone task in PWA and have is stay a milestone task when the project schedule is updated? -- Jesse

Programatically filter email in Project Server 2003

Is there a way to programatically filter email in Project Web Access in such 
a way that it will ONLY send email to (1) a new task and (2) a finished task, 
and all other e-mail notifications/updates won't go through? This is so that 
mail boxes in out office won't be filled up by updates.

We're using Project Server 2003 and SQL Server 2000.

Thanks!

Please see this article
( http://www.**--****.com/ ).

Accomplishing this task is pretty complicated in 2003. PS07 has much
better facilities for accomplishing this.

Thanks for the response. The documentation itself is a bit complicated too. 
Is there any other more simplistic approach on this? I'm just a newbie by the 
way. I was able to go through with extending OLAP cube via MSDN's 
documentation, but I'm confused with this one.

Not really, no. You may want to consider hiring someone with the
necessary expertise.

I just noticed something. The link you gave me is for Project 2002. Does this 
documentation also apply for Project 2003?

I've successfully used the article I gave you as a basis for developing
a customized email notification (albeit FAR in the past).

That aside, there is no article for 2003 specifically -- however,
2003's notifications are not noted as being different from 2002 in the
documentation anywhere (including the "What's New for Developers in
PS03" article).

Therefore, it's reasonable to assume that they are the same or very
similar.

'm recently trying a different approach. I'm trying to edit
tasks/svr_sendupdate.asp (because I noticed that this is the one called by
tasks/taskspage.asp when the "Update All" button is clicked. Would you see
any problems if I pursue this approach?

ot per se, but I don't believe I've ever done it this way. Have you
had any luck?

3.Notification emails from closed projects in project server 2003

We have encountered a problem with Project Server 2003.

Project managers receive announcements of resources reporting hours to
already closed projects' tasks, even though they have not.

Project resource assignments have set to proposed, which should be enough to
disable time booking and notifications.

sql script:

select P.PROJ_NAME, A.TASK_NAME, A.ASSN_START_DATE, A.ASSN_FINISH_DATE
from MSP_WEB_ASSIGNMENTS A, MSP_WEB_PROJECTS P
where WASSN_ID in (select A.WASSN_ID from MSP_WEB_ASSIGNMENTS A
where A.WRES_ID = (select R.WRES_ID from MSP_WEB_RESOURCES R
where R.RES_NAME = '<resource name here>')
and A.WPROJ_ID=P.WPROJ_ID
and P.WPROJ_IS_NONWORKING=0
and A.ASSN_BOOKING_TYPE=0
and A.WASSN_REMOVED_BY_RESOURCE = 0)
order by ASSN_START_DATE

shows that the resource is still assigned to the project (as he should be,
what I know).

Project manager's notification subscription is also on:

select n.wntfy_is_enabled from msp_web_notifications n, msp_web_resources p
where p.wres_id = n.wntfy_owner_id
and n.wntfy_event_id = 1009
and p.res_name = '<project manager name here>'

Which naturally is ok, he must receive notifications of "current" projects.

Next I would like to inspect the procedure which triggers the notification
email for projects, to see if there is something which could explain this
behaviour.

Please tell me what procedure to look into?

Or could there be something else to look for?

4.Email Status Requests in Project 2003 (w/o posting to the server)

My reference guide, the QUE Using MS Office Project 2003, states on page 547 
that there is an option to track status via email rather than simply through 
project server; but doesn't explain how.  I know there used to be an applet 
in older versions of the program that did this; but this appears to no longer 
exist for 2003.  
I've already tried the Collaborate>Publish>All Information and then the 
Collaborate>Request Progress Information and that publishes only to Project 
Server.  My team member, who does not have access to the server, can't see 
the status request, nor did she get a copy of it via email.  Does anyone have 
any idea how to do this?  Thanks!

5.Email Notification using Project Server 2003
