Agora's User Picker for Microsoft Project Server 2010

by Agora Consulting Partners Inc.

Agora’s User Picker for Microsoft Project Server 2010 is a free add-on to the Microsoft EPM Suite of tools. In our dozens of Project Server 2010 installations, we have found that customers often have difficulty implementing workflow and reporting around custom fields.

In Project Server, there is no native functionality to allow for the selection of a user from a user group via a drop-down list. The typical work-around is the implementation of look up tables but these can be difficult to administer and complicated to user in a workflow or report.

The typical usage of the User Picker is to specify the Sponsor or the Portfolio Manager of a project.
Agora’s User Picker for Microsoft Project 2010 is installed as a SharePoint Solution file. It is a webpart that can be dropped into any Project Detail Page. It is designed to be completely seamless in terms of look and feel to the EPM Suite.

User Picker allows a customer to configure drop down lists to select users for any custom field. Users are selected from user groups that are already implemented in the Project Server 2010 installation. It allows selection of multiple name/group pairs and can be used anywhere in the Portfolio Management or Project Management functionality within Project Server 2010.

With Agora’s User Picker for Microsoft Project Server, the configuration and maintenance of workflow and reporting functions within the Microsoft EPM suite is significantly simplified.
