Make custom risk content type default for all projects

Occasional Contributor

Hi,

I am using Project Server 2016 for hosting my projects. 

I created a custom content type for the risks and issues, being mindful that we should never delete the default risk columns. It works fine for the project and I made that content type as default. However, when a new project is added, it picks the default content type during site creation. How can I make my custom content type as default automatically and not needing to manually change it every time a project is created?

Thanks.

Hello @nooruls143,

Have you created a new site template from a site that has the new Risks content type added and set as default to the Risks list then added the new site template to the EPT? This blog post I wrote a few years ago might help you: https://pwmather.wordpress.com/2014/02/02/getting-started-with-projectonline-part-6-ps2013-office365...
