How to add a new Project Type option in dotProject 2.x

Hey all,

So in dotProject 2.x, you can select a project type.

There are three values by default:

Unknown
Administrative
Operative

Of course, these are generic and more granular types that you may want to add. Such changes can be made by a dotProject Administrator by going to System Admin | System Lookup Type and clicking the edit icon next to Select List | Project Type.

The format is quite simple:

0|Unknown
1|Administrative
2|Operative

So if you want to change it you just add in text more values in the same format.

0|Unknown
1|Administrative
2|Operative
3|Salesforce
4|Reporting
5|Community
6|Internal Tool

And interestingly enough there is not an apply button. Instead there is an “Edit” button (which doesn’t make sense, because you are already in edit mode). An “Apply” button would make much more sense.
