We would like to see Celoxis include a unique project ID in views such as "all projects". The idea is for it to be a unique project identifier, even if there happens to be duplicate project names in the system. While some companies may need or desire to build complex logic and formats into their project numbers, this is not our need. We need something as simple as an auto-generated number for each project. It need not be more complex than the auto number that is applied to each tasks that is entered into a project plan.
This will simplify daily tasks such as referring to a specific project on a report that includes many projects, such as we would review in a weekly PMO meeting. It would also allow us to have a unique project ID to cross reference to our project list in Celoxis, without needing to maintain an offline spreadsheet to keep track and make sure numbers are unique.
From what little I know of database design, my belief is that Celoxis must already employ some sort of project ID code in its system as a unique key, but that ID is simply not shown to users.
