Trendlines for your project data – make your success visible!

Have you ever thought about embedding data visualization into your PDPs in Project Server 2010? Well, I did! And the basic idea is quite simple.

  1. Create a PDP
  2. Add the “Query String (URL) Filter” web part to the page
  3. Read out the projuid parameter and hand it over with a web part connection to another web part on the page

This concept works in PDPs for

  • embedded Excel documents
  • embedded views of SharePoint lists
  • embedded Visio drawings
  • even for embedded InfoPath forms!

and of course SSRS reports!

So here is an example of a SSRS report embedded in a PDP. (The data for the report is based on snapshots taken from the Reporting DB using SSIS)


Good luck!
