Changing project and request type names

Hello;

We have a constant text in all request and project type names.

I want to delete the text in all requests. Is there any risk? Shall I perform a custom operation on closed requests? Any suggestion before the change operation.

 

Here current names:

 

TFKB - Küçük İstek

TFKB - Master Proje

TFKB - Proje Değişiklik Talebi

TFKB - Proje Riski

TFKB - Proje Sorunu

TFKB - Rutin

TFKB - Taktik Proje

TFKB - Teklif

TFKB - Öğrenilmiş Ders

 

Here new names:

Küçük İstek

Master Proje

Proje Değişiklik Talebi

Proje Riski

Proje Sorunu

Rutin

Taktik Proje

Teklif

Hi,

 

I would make it invisible instead of removing,

because no risk at all.

One thing you may want to keep in mind is there "could be" some impact on your existing "Custom" Portlets or custom database Reports which often have queries based on Request Type Names.  I know we have many of those kinds of external Reports in our case which runs from various different servers outside of PPM and we Review and if needed, update them  whenever we change Names. Its a good practice.

 

Thanks.

Hi TurboMan;

How can I make request and project type manes in visible?

If I make it invisible it does not have any effect on database.

We are generating reports from DB.

Is there any workaround for this?
