Issue/Introduction

Is there a way to manually change the custom attribute % Planned Value (PV) for a project?

Environment

Release : Any

Component : CLARITY PROJECT MANAGEMENT

Resolution

As this is a calculated field, the value is unable to be changed manually. The one option would be to create a new custom attribute that you could manually enter data into for % Planned Value.

To check if an attribute is a calculated field:

  1. In Classic PPM, go to Administration->Studio->Objects
  2. Click on the object the attribute belongs too
  3. Click on the Attributes tab
  4. View the Data Type value for the attribute from the list view (or by clicking on the attribute)

If the Data type displays as any type of Calculated (Calculated Number, Calculated String, or Calculated Date), this cannot be manually changed. 

Additional Information

As Planned Value is a calculated field, the Planned Value field is also a field that wouldn't be something that could be manually updated. Information on Planned Value at: Calculate Earned Value, EAC, ETC, and Other Metrics
