Project Edit Rules
Project edit rules allow the manager to control how and which fields should be
edited when making suggestions.
As a manager, you can setup the rules by either:
- In the Explore Server tab, right-click on your project file and select
Project Settings > Task Edit Rules tab, or
- In a project viewer, right-click and select Project Details and
Settings > Task Edit Rules tab
Add a new rule, and define it as described below.
Choose the type of action for which this rule should apply to. The action
refers to the action taken when a suggestion is made.
Choose the type of rule enforcement to use.
If the rule applies and the 'Comment must be included...' is checked, then a
comment must be included before the user can submit a new suggestion.
Apply rule to field(s)
Choose the fields this rule applies to. For example, select Resource Names
and rule 'Not empty' to make sure that the resource name is always filled in.
Conditions can added to further control when this rule should apply. For
example, the above conditions say that this rule should only apply if Work field
is more than 0 days OR this is not a milestone task.
Here you can customize the error/confirmation message that will be displayed
to the user if a rule is violated.
Note, use the Tags for a dynamic messages. For instance LiveProject will
replace the tag #name# with the actual rule name when the message is
Example of a dynamic message:
The task must have a resource assigned to #field# according to rule #name#
before you can #action#.
