Calendar ID required

Posted on by 20

Hi Team,

I keep getting this required field when I create a project.



I initially thought this was related to the calendar template the project uses to schedule work time (9-5), but this is something else?

    I mixed the column with the calendar template column. Do the following:

    - Make sure column Calendar template (msdyn_workhourtemplate) is on the form. It should be business required.

    - Set msdyn_calendarid to not business required so that you can remove it from the form.

    - Set msdyn_calendarid back to business required (it originally is business required but it isn't originally on the form).

    A value for msdyn_calendarid is populated automatically when saving a new project row. You don't need to have it on the project main form.

    Hi Antti,


    Thank you for responding, It looks like the same msdy_calendarid :


    When you refer to column, does that equate to the field schema name?

    From the solution:

    What's the logical name of that column? The calendar template column is a lookup string with a logical name msdyn_calendarid.
