      Hello, all. Does anyone know how to flag summary tasks? I want to flag them based on the summary task name. I would have thought either [Name]=”” or [Task Summary Name]=”” would do it. But neither work. [Name] only applies to actual tasks with that name, and [Task Summary Name] applies to all subtasks underneath the summary with that name.

      Should work. Have you checked “Use formula” for “Calculation for task and group summary rows” on the custom field specification?

      No, I had not. And that was the problem. Thank you very much!

      Not certain why you’re trying to flag them, but there is a task field called “Summary”. It’s a Yes/No field and it already identifies the task as a summary.

      I’m formatting summary tasks based on the name. Thanks for your input.
