      Is there a way to change project owner? We would like to have our IS group start the project when request come in and then go to remote location for Project management at the plant level. The issue is we want to filter PWA and run many reports based off project Owner, so I am looking for a way to have the IS start the project and notify me, then I would change ownership to me and structure the project and site from there. Any Ideas?

      Darren, you can add the Owner field to one of the PDPs to show and change ownership. The problem you might run across based on your question is that a resource needs to have the permission to create projects in order to be able to be assigned as an owner. I tend to recommend creating a separate Project Manager field for assigning the project owner/manager and run reports off of that. Unless you need specific security permissions for the project owner/manager, I tend to find the workarounds difficult. Let me know if that solution doesn’t work.
