Fill Field Problems (Demand for Project)

We construct a request type and workflow demands and another request type and workflow projects. When we transform a demand on a project, using a step of executing native (CREATE PROJECT). Two fields are not loaded, all other fields are automatically loaded.

How should we proceed?

Re: Fill Field Problems (Demand for Project)

Project creation requires fields like Project Manager, Start Period, End Period and Project Name. If you aren't already populating these in your demand then the project creation will error out. Since you mentioned two fields are not loaded, you can make them required using status dependency on the demand, and make sure the fields are editable for user before project creation.

Re: Fill Field Problems (Demand for Project)

The basic fields are already filled. The creation of the project presents no error. But there are some fields that are not native speakers that are not filled at the time of automatic creation.

 

Thanks you for the help.

Re: Fill Field Problems (Demand for Project)

Hi,

 

If you want to transfer a field from one field to another you must ensure below parameters:

  • token names must be exactly same at both request types
  • field names must be exactly same at both request types
  • field type must be exactly same at both request types

Please try these and return whather it run or not

Re: Fill Field Problems (Demand for Project)

Hello,

I ran exactly their recommendations and did not work. Any other alternative?

Re: Fill Field Problems (Demand for Project)

Do you have same validation on both the request type?

Can you share some screenshots of the request types (Proposal & Project), make sure that you capture the affected fields in your screenshot.

Re: Fill Field Problems (Demand for Project)

Last 2 checks:
Are these text fields same size ?
Are these fields described in Request Type or Request Type Header ?

Re: Fill Field Problems (Demand for Project)

if you have field security in proposal, and the user who convert to projects does not have right on those fields, may be this is the cause of your problem.

Exactly. Since that's OK.

But the problem continues.
