How do you rename a project in PPM 7.1

We are upgrading from version 6 to 7.1 and I have two questions:

1. How do you rename a project in 7.1 i have exposed the project name field in the project request, but when i change it, sometimes the name change flows to the project, but most times not. they all use the same project type.

2. How is the project status derived? It does not appear to have anything to do with the project plan nor the project request.

Changing the name in Project request should change the name in Workplan.

For this you have to save the request once.

If the project name does not update even after clicking the Save, Please send the snapshot.

I hope request status and Project Status are one and the same.

Re: How do you rename a project in PPM 7.1

So are there other security considerations that would make some project title's editable and not others?

Hi Lenn,

As project Name is field in Project request, you can provide security to change the Project Name by using field level security.

I don't think its a field level security issue because all user can change the project name.

The two issues are definitely related because on the projects where I can change the name, the project status changes according to the workflow for the project details. I am thinking that there is a problem with the link between the project and the project details. I have opened up a trouble ticket with HP

Hi lenn,

May be opening a ticket with HP helps.
Is that you are having only one project type or many project types. Also let me know request types attached to these.

When u say u are able to edit name in one project and not in others, check the project type of those.

We are only using the PFM-project project type that migrated over from 6.0

the difference is that projects created from proposals pre-upgrade work correctly. the projects created after the upgrade are all consistently failing.

Hi Lenn,

That Means to me there was a problem after upgrade only.

are u able to see the project status which are related to project request type only.

I am sorry, i am not able to think of good reason for this,

Thanks

I think I worked this out with HP. I basically had to delete the field groups and then add them back. There is something that did not translate correctly.
