Project Server Custom Field list of options to come from an external list

  Date: Nov 01    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 1519

Project Server 2010 is a feature of SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, so I am hoping
there are some users of Project Server who monitor this group. I want to create
a custom field in Project Server that gets its list of possible values from an
external list. Out of the box it does not seem to work that way. I created an
external list in the home site of PWA. But when I go to create a new custom
field, that list does not show up as a possible list to pick for the values for
the custom field. In fact, no list on the site shows up unless it is
specifically created within the link to create custom fields, and those lists
don't show up in the way that normal lists do. So there is something special
about these lists. Anybody know of a way to use BCS to define a source for one
of these special lists, rather than hardcoding the values?
