BIRT4 - Display Contact Person dataset

Peter Kolar 2 years ago in Something Else updated by Sancho Leath 1 year ago 6


I am upgrading our tempaltes to BIRT4 and am stuck on this one display item. I am trying to display the contact person in a specific task, but do not know the correct dataset value for it. Can anyone help with that?

Basically I want to display a contact person in the header row for each task of a customer invoice template.

Kind regards,


Hi, would project level contact person be of any help?

Hi Michal,

I would really need it on a task level, since we have clients that have many contact persons that order our services Thank you anyway:).

Kind regards,


Hi Peter,

Unfortunately currently our DataSet for Tasks in Customer Invoice does not allow to display Contact Person from particular Task.

Is there any way this will change and does anyone have a workaround/solution for this? Dipslaying the contact person for a task on an invoice seems to be a basic level requirement.

Kind regards,


We had to have a customized invoice template made for us to achieve this.
