  • Hi, I deployed the web part "Workspace Project Custom Field Web Part" and when I want to include it into Project Detail Pages and want to add project fields I receive the message "File not found".

    Do you have any idea what might be the reason? Is any action needed after the succesful deployment and feature activation?

    Thanks in advance

    Regards Norbert

  • Hi, The links are no longer working. Is there another venue when we can view the solution starters pack?

    Many Thanks Michael
