Enterprise Flag1-20 fields

The Enterprise Flag1 through Enterprise Flag20 fields can store any custom task, resource, or assignment flag information as defined by your project management administrator or other user with administrative permissions. These fields are then made available to all users throughout the organization. A flag can indicate whether a task, resource, or assignment is marked for further action or identification of some kind. A flagged field is marked Yes or No.

There are several categories of Enterprise Flag1-20 fields.

Data Type    Yes/No (Yes/No field: A type of field with content set to either Yes or No; also known as a Boolean field or a True/False field. For example, the Recurring field indicates whether the task is a recurring task.)

Entry Type    Calculated or Entered (calculated or entered field: A field in which the value is determined by Project based on information in other fields. Information that you enter in the field yourself overrides calculated values.)

How Calculated    Depending on how they were customized, the Enterprise Flag fields might be defined with formulas or other conditions to display specific results.

Best Uses    You can add any defined and available Enterprise Flag field to a task view; you can also see a list of available enterprise custom task fields, in the Task Information dialog box.

Example    You are the project management administrator, and the project managers throughout the enterprise need to track specialized accounting information in certain tasks. Using the checked-out enterprise global template, you define the Enterprise Flag1 field for this purpose. You then check the enterprise global template in again to make the new field available to all users.

You are a project manager, and you see that there is a new Enterprise Flag field available: "Account 1026" is defined for the Enterprise Flag1 field. You add this field to the Task Sheet, and then click Yes in the field for each task that needs the special handling. You then filter for that Flag field to work with only those tasks marked Yes.

Remarks    Only someone with permission to save the enterprise global template (for example, your project management administrator) can check out and edit items in the enterprise global template. All users throughout the organization can then view enterprise fields that have been defined and checked in.
