How to customize choices for Project Requests, Programs and Project using Project Accelerator

Hello,

Project Accelerator has many different choices for Project Request, Programs, and Projects. But, very often, I will need different choices, or even new ones.

And, of course there is a way to customize it.

Let me start with a Project Request. I will create a new one:

SNAGHTML2da1be4e

and:

SNAGHTML2da3a994

As we can see, for Priority, I have four options, but I need fifth: (5) Very Low.

First of all, all those fields, like Name, Request State, Priority are stored in Tables, in Dataverse.

For Project Request, there is a table which can be accessed:

and:

since I want to modify the Priority field, I will choose it and I will follow next steps:

and:

That is it. Now back to the Project Request:

and here it is!

Now let’s look at the Program:

and:

What? The same value is available in Program as well. Why? Because both tables are using the same field. And I can see all those Choice fields here:

and:

So I can add, edit or delete them from here, as well.

Finally, the Project!

and:

As you can see, for Project Type I can choose, between: Security, Cloud Computing, etc. Now, let’s say that this Project is Construction type. But, I don’t have this option available. No big deal. I will add it.

I will add Construction as a choice:

and:

Now, let’s get back to my Project:

Voila! Here it is.

So, as you see, if you have right permissions, you will be able to customize many choice fields for your own purpose

Regards!
