MSP integration causing issue on "Work Plan" portlet after sync

We have a user who integrates his projects with MSP. Also, in MSP he uses the % complete functionality.
To do that in MSP he says he needs to have the first line as the Project name.

When he integrates the MSP plan into PPM it is read like the project name is a task, so now the project name shows up twice.
This is causing an issue on the Project Summary Tab "Work Plan" portlet.

Does anybody encounter the same situation, Do you have any workarounds

PPM 7.5 SP3

thanks
Kevin

Hi Kev,

Maybe what you are looking for is the option on MS Project to show the project summary task. With that option, your project managers do not need to create manually a first summary task, which is reflected on PPM.
Please see attachment. Hope this helps.

Matias
