Assumptions (project field)

The Assumptions field contains key assumptions for the current proposal. This field is controlled by the workflow (A workflow represents the structured governance process for projects to proceed through lifecycle phases. An organization's project workflow can be modeled and controlled through the demand management features in Project Web Access.).

Data Type    Text (text field: A type of field whose content is text. Examples include the Task Name and Email Address fields. This field can contain up to 255 characters.)

Entry Type    Entered (entered field: A field in which you may type or edit information. This is in contrast with a calculated field, in which Project calculates and enters information.)

Best Uses    Add the Assumptions field to a proposal when you want to state your assumptions for the conditions of a project. This provides useful information for the Portfolio Analysis process.

Example    You are proposing a project to develop a Web-based customer service solution. You add the Assumptions field to the proposal and enter your basic assumptions for the project, including the availability of the principal corporate Web designer, the need for tools such as instant messaging and user discussion groups, and a database of product-related articles.

Remarks    This field is an example of a custom multiline text field provided with Project Server. You can view a list of available custom fields, and also create your own in Project Web App.
