User data is the set of custom fields that can be defined for various Project Management entities. User data fields can be used to capture data not covered by the default project/task information fields, such as a cross-listing of the task to a specific process or deliverable identifier when coordinating with major vendor implementation methodologies. These fields are accessed through the User Data tab in the Task Details page. Required user data is enforced when the Task Details page is opened. If no user data has been defined for a particular entity, the tab does not appear. Field-level security configured for task user data is not enforced.
User data fields are configured in the PPM Workbench.
