Workflow Stage Name (project field)

The Workflow Stage Name field specifies the current 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.) stage name for a selected project. A stage represents a single step within a project life cycle, and one or more stages can make up a workflow phase. This field is a component of the Project Server workflow framework.

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 Workflow Stage Name field to a project page when you want to see the name of a project’s current stage in its life cycle.

Example    You manage a portfolio of projects, and you want to see the name of the life cycle stage for each of your projects. You add the Workflow Stage Name field to the Project Center.

Remarks    You can view or specify workflow components in Project Server by looking at the server settings in Project Web App.
