Change the information about a project (custom fields)

You can change the information about your project, such as the project name, the project owner, and the information in any custom fields that your organization has created to help describe a project.

Note: Some information about projects, such as the project calendar and cost information, can be changed only by using Microsoft Office Project Professional. To make those changes, select the project, and then click Open to open Project Professional. Update the project information, and then click Save on the File menu.

  1. On the Quick Launch, click Projects.

  2. Select the project, and then click Edit Project Properties.

  3. Under Basic Information, type a new project name and new owner.

  4. Your organization may require additional information about your project. Under Project Custom Fields, enter the information that your organization requires.

Why can't I perform some actions in Microsoft Office Project Web Access?

Depending on the permissions settings you used to log on to Project Web Access, you may not be able to see or use certain features. Also, what you see on some pages may differ from what is documented if your server administrator customized Project Web Access and did not customize the Help to match.
