Enabling DM buttons

Hi,

We have 7.1 PPM server with access to Demand Management system. When I click on "Search Requests" I get a form asking for PM, created, owned by etc etc. I can see one field - "Status" with a button to search the available status options. But this button is disabled (note I have ALL grants). And I want to enable it.

What steps I need to follow to acheive this?


Regards,
Sam

Sam,

That option will appear after you have selected a Request Type. It will then show you a list of the Statuses configured for that Request Type.

Thanks Jack.

That is fine. But if I want to enable it by default, then what I will have to do?

Hi,

why do you need the status field enabled by default?
There are around 200 statuses. You will never need it all.
Selecting a request type and than selecting the statuses is a good approach.
If you want to reuse the search, you can easily save it.

Thanks Volker.

I understand your point. But still I want to know first of all whether disabling is possible? if yes, how? (am an end user)

Sam,

That's not an end user editable form. That's an Out Of The Box form, providing OOTB functionality. It is designed to operate where the ability to select a Status is not enabled until a Request Type is selected.
