Experts,
I have a master project file with 20 embedded projects for several groups using resources assigned to more than one project.  I would like to provide a list of all tasks, to each main person, so they can view thier deliverable and know which project it relates to (a person might be on 4,5,or6 projects).  I like the calendar view, but I can't get it to filter by resource or at the task level.  I also like the To-do list, and its close, but the missing information is the project name (only shows tasks...without what project).  Is there a way to customize/edit the To-Do to add a project name?  Help....

The standard who does what and who does what when reports were intended for this purpose.  
When you insert projects to build the master project file, the project name should be available as a customizable field in these reports.

How all this happens will depend on your version.   What version of Project are you using?

Hi -- I have Microsoft 2007.  I checked the who does what when report -- and it lists the week date (as a calendar) and has too many lines of data -- also does not have the project name.

I the reports,  the one that fits my needs the closest is the "To-Do" list but there are issues:
1. When prompted to selec the resource, no values appear on the drop down list, so I need to type the person's name in -- not sure why this is happening and concerned I might miss tasks
2. Does not provide the project name, when using it at the embedded project file, containing 23 project files.  
3. I do like that it has the week of, task name, duration, start/end dates....this part is perfect, but I needed the project name.

What else can I do?
