Dynamic text can be included in item names and descriptions to elevate important information (such as category, attribute values, start and end dates and project durations) so it appears on the face of the item. This action can be performed in the View Setup, in the Item Appearance tab as highlighted below: 

 

 

 

Note: By default, the only attribute/property that is displayed on the face of the item is name. 

 

Any type of attribute/property/calculated value can be included in the dynamic text on the face of the item. The format is as follows: 

 

[Property Name] where the property name is the name of the attribute/property/calculated value which is to be included on the item face.  

 

Note: Square brackets must be used to produce the dynamic version of the property.
