How to Hide an Enterprise Project Type in Project Server

Posted By Posted by: EPM Partners on March 20, 2014

Environment: Project Server 2010/2013

Background: When creating a new project within the Project Center, the list of available Enterprise Project Types (EPT) contains some that are not currently in use.

Requirement:  A client has requested to hide the existing EPT type in the list as it is no longer needed due to internal business restructure.

Solution: Insert a new value in the department lookup table such as “Not currently in use”. Steps are as below:

Server Settings > Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Table > Department (Lookup Table)

1. Choose the Department association value “Not currently in use” for the EPT which you don’t want to show in the list. Note that this department association is used only for filtering the EPTs on the Project Center and not for security.

Server Settings > Enterprise Project Types > Choose the value as per step in the department section.

2.. Check the EPT in the Project center ‘New Project’ list. It should now no longer be visible. Bingo!!

Note: In the event that you want to re-display the above EPT type in the list, then simply reset the value of the department associated to it.
