I have a Project Dashboard that I created that basically does everything that PM Pro doesn't currently do out of the gate. Some of the fields are… Priority, Status, Region, Target Audience, Budget, Requestor, Lead… and so on. About 15 fields total.
I have a dashboard that gives a run down of every project with these fields showing and you can run reports and whatever.
The current workflow is that someone adds a new project via PM Pro. Then they see a link to Edit Project Details. This allows them to add in the other fields. These fields are available just on the Dashboard page I created (you can also click on the link to see them but really doesn't offer anything). I would like at least some of these fields to sit in PM Pro.
Is there a suggested place to put these to make it easier to upgrade in the future without doing a ton of work? Can I just add a tab with the other fields in it – and how do I add a tab (I have also thought about putting these fields in the project header)? How are other people handling adding things in this?
I would like to simply know how the wedevs developers would implement this idea so it has the least amount of interference with future upgrades. Do you offer any suggestions for adding tabs or extra data? I am a developer and understand that I can add anything anywhere, which I have started doing. But I would like to also follow your suggestions on this so I don't have huge upgrade times. thank you.
I think you can first follow the architecture of our plugin. There are documentation of every function and hook in coding. Just try to follow. Hope you will get help by that way and it will be easy for you because you are a developer.
Hope you understand.
Thank You 🙂
