Project Detail Pages (PDPs) represent a single Web Part Page in Microsoft Project Web App. PDPs can be used to display or collect information from the user. You can create PDPs much as you create any Web Part Page in a SharePoint site, where you can add Web Parts that provide the experience that you want. You can add individual Web Parts from the standard Web Part galleries or create custom Web Parts.
Microsoft Project Server 2010 Web Parts and custom Web Parts used in Demand Management all contain custom fields. Web Parts can make calls to the Project Server Interface (PSI), query the Reporting database, or integrate with external systems.
There are three types of Project Detail Pages that can be created:
New Project Used for creating a project. This type of PDP is required with an enterprise project template that has a workflow for portfolio analysis.
Workflow Status Shows the current stage and status for a project proposal.
Project Used for editing.
