Linking an Enterprise Custom Field in PWA to Project Desktop

Occasional Contributor

Hi there, perhaps there's someone who can assist.

 

I'm creating Enterprise Custom Fields, for example one is called "High-level status" which is a Project-wide field that is just multiple lines of text without any look-up tables.

 

How do I "Import it" into Project Desktop so that my Project Managers can edit the field in there at all times? When I go to Custom Fields, I don't see the field there, it only displays in PWA.

Hello @khyron 

Multiline fields are only available on Project Detail Pages in PWA. Other enterprise custom fields will be in Project Desktop.

I don't think I understand.

When I go to project desktop and then custom fields, I can't seem to import the enterprise fields to add to the global project desktop template.

@khyron You will need to "connect" your Project Desktop to your PWA. By creating a Profile in your Project Desktop. Please see this reference.
