Hello I am using MS Project. I know you have the ability to add tables and custom fields. Is there anyway to create a 1:many relationship between a project task and custom table? The reason is that I want to manage issues from within MS Project. So of for any given tasks there maybe 1 or more issues associated to that task

Hi there and welcome

Which version of project is this?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
MS Project 2010
Thanks Red

Project doesn't have it. It is a let down, but they still have not implemented this functionality.

There is a kind of work around, and I have a guide for it

You can view it here

There is not one yet for 2010 (the guide is for 2007), but it is the same way to set it up

Please let me know if you encounter any difficulties doing this

Thank you

Yes, I've seen this, but it seems to be a 1:1 relationship, what happens if you have more than 1 issue?
Then you reach a limitation in project

You can use the Tasks Note Field, but it is not the best.

Personally, I moved away from project due to this and other limitations and now use Jira

MS Project has always been a basic project management tool, and if you really need to have proper project management, I would advise Jira

Please let me know if you would like any additional information

Thank you
