My MPPs now ruled by the Enterprise Global template?

My MPPs now ruled by the Enterprise Global template?

My MPPs now ruled by the Enterprise Global template?

Myself and my team are the only people who actively use our local MS Project Server, where all our MPPs are stored. Until a week or two ago, when I wanted to do something like add a column to an MPP or change formatting of bar or do a thousand other formatting type things to a single MPP, it accepted it and remembered it for that specific MPP when it was saved.

In other words, each project had their own unique columns showing in the default Gantt Chart view, and this was remembered.

Then suddenly a week or so ago, any changes made to these things popped up a dialog that said:

"Edits will not be saved.

Any edits made to enterprise global template items are only available during this session. Make edits in the checked-out enterprise global template to make them available to all users of this Project Server."

How socialist. What does every project have to be the same? Can't I override this? Can't I get it back the way it was before?

I do have admin rights to change this on the server, if necessary.

Anyone? Thanks so much.

Yep, that is the way MS Project Server is designed to work.  If you are connected to the server and open an .mpp file stored there, then from your client, you do not have the ability to save changes to the Tables or Views established by MS Project Server.

You can however, create your own Table and View and modify those however your desire.  Any changes you make to your own table and view will not prompt you with "edits will not be saved".

Here is an article that might be of value:

Hope this!!
