The Enterprise Global setting enables you to change the Enterprise Global file in Microsoft Project Professional 2010.
The Enterprise Global file contains all custom enterprise objects that are available to users (for example, views, tables, groups, filters, and reports). When a Project Professional 2010 user connects to Microsoft Project Server 2010, the latest version of the Enterprise Global file is loaded and cached on the client computer. This lets the user access all enterprise custom objects available on the server.
Through the Enterprise Global file, you are able to enforce standards in your organization that can be applied to all project and resources that work with Project Server 2010 data. By using views, tables, filters, and other related elements contains in the Enterprise Global file, you can help ensure effective standardization in your organization.
Decisions about what to include in the Enterprise Global file should be made at an organizational level. You should contact your Project Management Office (PMO) before you make any significant changes to the Enterprise Global file.
