Default Graphical Indicators customisation

Afternoon all

Is it possible to add custom graphical indicators on Project 2010? I have the lovely smiley faces, plain flags, strange occultish black and white yin.yang type inidcators, but I want more!



Sorry0 been a long day so far. Returning to the question, is it possible to add graphical indicators? I ask because I need to include a field in my programme with a symbol to indicate ownership. Yes, I can do this normally, but unfortunately my client does not want to see a name, nor a referenced flag, but the indicator they have chosen for each person.
I have already expressed my view that this cannot be done, to which the answer was " I dont care if its possible, I want it to happen. Make it happen". This is not a client I can get rid easily (unfortunately), and he has cionvinced himself and several others that he has seen this before.

Any ideas? Sorry for the post tone, but it really, really, really has been one of those days

Sorry to hear it has been a challenging day. I hate to disappoint but no, you cannot add additional indicators to the list of graphics. Many many years ago there was a post about creating a new *.dll file but it requires extensive use of programming. And, I can't find that post after all these years. There may be some third party products - but I haven't stumbled across any.

Thasnks J, appreciated.
I have told the client that he cannot have what he wants, but that I can provide symbols so that each person can choose one. the response was "why cant I just print some off so that they can stick them on the programme thing" (his words).

It seems that what they actualy required was just a column to denote ownership of some tasks (or task groups) for their office wall, and not something contained within Project itself.

Make a run to the local store and pick up some stickers then it sounds like the customer is all set

Thanks Julie, sorry for the waste of effort on this one

Now have little stickers on a laminated piece of paper- not quite what I envisaged, but a happy client is a quiet one

No worries about the effort. Glad to have helped and glad to know the low tech version works.
