Deliverable Type (task field)

Data Type     Number

Entry Type    Calculated

Description    The Deliverable Type field indicates whether the current task has an associated deliverable, and whether that deliverable is produced by the current task or produced by a separate project or task upon which the current task is dependent.

How Calculated    This value cannot be changed manually.

  • If the current task has no associated deliverable, the Deliverable Type field displays a value of 0.

  • If an associated deliverable is produced by the current task, this field displays a value of 1.

  • If an associated deliverable is produced by a separate project or task upon which the current task is dependent, this field displays a value of 2.

Tip: If you would prefer to display this information as text, you can customize a calculated field and insert the calculated field instead of Deliverable Type. Base your calculated field on the Deliverable Type field, and use the following formula:

Switch([Deliverable Type]=0,"NA",[Deliverable Type]=1,"Deliverable",[Deliverable Type]=2,"Dependency")

Best Uses    Add the Deliverable Type field to a task sheet so that you can tell at a glance whether an associated deliverable is produced by the current task or produced by a separate project or task upon which the current task is dependent.

Remarks    You can only associate one deliverable with any one task, either as a deliverable produced by that task or as a deliverable produced by another task or project upon which that task is dependent.

To make project deliverables visible on a task sheet, include at least one of the following fields:

  • Deliverable Type indicates whether the current task has an associated deliverable, and whether that deliverable is produced by the current task or produced by a separate project or task upon which the current task is dependent.

  • Deliverable Name displays the name or title of the associated deliverable.

  • Deliverable Start displays the scheduled start date of the associated deliverable.

  • Deliverable Finish displays the scheduled finish date of the associated deliverable.

  • Deliverable GUID displays the unique identification code of the associated deliverable.
