Goals (project field)

The Goals field contains the measurable goals of 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 Goals field to a proposal when you want to enter the goals of the 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 Goals field to the proposal and enter its goals.

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 the left pane of Project Web App.
