Hi, I am trying to extend the properties option of the "Portfolio" object with a new tab 'Projects'

Project

Start date

End date

Progress

Responsible

[Local Name]

[Begin Date]

[End Date]

[Progress Percentage]

[Project Leader]

 

Responsible [Project Leader] is from portfolio>Project>Project Leader, like to show in table but couldnt do that yet.  First 4 MetaAttribute of upper table is showing but [Project Leader] is not showing, which can be retrieved using MetaAssociation or Query. MetaProperty code attached as screenshot.

Cuurent view is attached as screenshot and expected view is attached as screenshot Details.

 Hi Farhad,

 

I see that you are trying to create a column of Person Assignment in a list view. Person Assignment is a MetaAssociationEnd and not an Attribute. You will need to create a TaggedValue object that determines and holds the Person Assignment of Project. You will need some knowledge of customization.

 

1. Create a TaggedValue

2. Create and modify macro for the TaggedValue

3. Update Property Page to add the column of created TaggedValue. Ex:  PersonAssignment  = Item("xxxxTaggedValuexxx"),From(TaggedListView),Name("Responsible")

 

Hope this help.

 

Thanks,

Hi Philip,

 

When using the TaggedValue as you describe, would that display the value (in this case Person assignment) as a simple text, or would it display the object itself so that I could right-click on it, and bring up its menu to explore it, open its properties, etc.?

 

Thanks,

Philippe

Hi Philippe,

 

TaggedValue will only return the text of the user name if you return the string. It is not a mega object so it would not allow user to right mouse click the name and select Properties or Explore.
