Formulas in Custom fields

(Martin Fischer) #1

Hi, I would like to add a custom field (column) “time” on the resource page and compute the time spent by each resource as “duration” x “unit”. How can I do that.
Or in general, is it possible to use formulas to compute values in custom fields. If not, what are custom fields made for?
Thank you very much, Martin

No, formulas in custom fields are not supported, sorry.

Hi Dmitry,

thank you for your quick reply. Is it envisaged in the next future to
have a column “cost” or “time” on the Resources page? This would be
really handy to get directly the cost related to each person /
department involved in the project.

thank you very much

See linked discussion about resource costs.

thank you Dmitry,

in fact the csv export is a solution (I had not thought of that) but in
that case I need also for each task the percentage at which each
resource works on the task.

have a good day
