Renaming a Required Task on Existing work plans created from a template

Hi,

 

We currently enforce that all projects are created from a work plan template. In the work plan template there are tasks that are marked as required. We have created +- 150 projects in the system using the work plan template.  The clients requirement has changed and some of the required tasks need to be renamed. Since these tasks are marked as required, we cannot delete or rename them when in PPM Controlled or MSP controlled on any existing project.

 

Any suggestions or solution on how we can update the required tasks on existing work plans?

Kribin,

Try to query WP_TASK_INFO table for targeted rows, then a update query should allow you to rename the task names.

 

Remember to committ your changes in DB and all the workplan should get updated. Remember this does not update the workplan template, and you have to update it to reflect correctly for future projects.
