How can we improve Project?

Support for Arabic language in Lookup Table Custom Field in Project Server 2016 / 2013


The search in Arabic in Lookup Table Custom Field is not working properly in Project Server 2016 / 2013.


In Project Server 2016 / 2013, I tried to create a lookup table with Arabic Entries by doing the following:

- Go to PWA Settings.
- Below Enterprise Data, Click on Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Tables.
- Scroll down to Lookup Tables for Custom Fields.
- Create a new Lookup Table with Text type.
- Add Arabic Entries.
- Go back to create a custom field that will get the data from the created lookup table.
- Add now your new custom field in Project Detail Pages (Project Information Page).
- Go back to Add a new project, you will note that

"The Search in Lookup Table Field for Arabic Entries is not working" ,
Please check the attached image.


- It's not considered a new idea, it looks like a critical bug in Project Server 2013 / 2016, I think in Project Online too.

- I also have documented the issue in details at my blog

Finally, I hope this issue to be resolved soon.
