How can I show the Critical Path of the schedule in PPO?

Step 1 - Implement Critical Path Data Field
A new data field must be added to the Tasks entity as follows:

Note: when the field is added the Field Type must be Yes/No and the List Criteria must be Ticked.

Step 2 - Map the MSP Critical Path field to PPO
The critical path is determined in Microsoft Project (MSP) automatically and the field in MSP is called "critical":

In order for this field to be imported into PPO the MSP field needs to be mapped to the PPO field on the Task Import Field under the System Configuration:

T20_taskcritical.gif

Note: in the example above the PPO field is T20 and the MSP field is taskcritical.

Step 3 - Import the Project Plan into PPO
Import your Microsoft Project (MSP) plan into PPO. The Critical field from MSP will be imported into the PPO Data Field:

Step 4 - View Critical Path
The Critical Path can now be viewed from the Task List page:

critical_path_on_Task_list.gif

or, by creating a filter using the Critical Path Data Field:
