Project Logs/Issues: Out of the Box Fields

PPM Pro provides a set of fields for every entity - these fields are referred to as "standard" or "out-of-the-box" fields. You build your entities using a combination of standard and user-defined fields (UDFs). A subset of fields appear on your entity's Detail panel by default to help get you up and running quickly; a subset of those default fields are labeled "mandatory". You can remove any of the default fields except the mandatory ones - those must remain on the Details. See Required vs Mandatory Fields for more information. The complete list of standard and UDFs can be found on Admin/Setup/All Entities/Issues/Available Fields, and definitions for all the standard fields are in the table below.

Complete List of Out of the Box (Standard) Fields

Title Description
Assigned To The issues/project log Assigned To field is a multi-select list that allows selection of multiple resources. All assignees are granted implicit owner permissions (including Time users), meaning they can view and edit on Home/Issues. 

The Assignee dropdown initially displays the members of the project team, if any. A "Show All" link returns All Resources - any selected assignee not already on the project team will be added to the project team. Please note the following changes to the Assigned To field:

  • Display format for names will go from "Last, First" to "First Last" (this will impact data import)
  • Can no longer use 'assigned to' in calc fields that require 1-1 relationship (for example, GetRelatedChildEntity)
