I am pleased to announce that whilst I have been at the Project Conference in Anaheim the second App CPS developed has been approved and is now available in the SharePoint App Store:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/store/risk-to-issue-escalator-WA104197354.aspx

This app will escalate Risks to Issues at the click of a button and update the risk item to indicate it has been escalated. The risk item is updated with an escalated date and the default Status column is set to closed providing you have “closed” somewhere in one of the choices. If you don’t have closed in one of the choice strings, the Status column is not updated. Some of the data from the risk item is mapped and copied into the new issue item that gets created, the mappings are below:

Risk Column

Issue Column

Title

Owner

The new issue item doesn’t get created straightaway, the user has the option to edit / update the data in the issue item columns. Some screen shots can be seen below:

The app can be added to a project site in the Project Web App, the same functionality exists, the only difference is that the associated project is pre-selected and it can’t be changed.

A full user guide can be found here.

A free trial exists, go try it out today! Smile
