I am also a certified Prince2 Practitioner.

A quick post to support a very simple script to change the Owner display label on a Project Detail Page page. Quite often clients request to change the Owner to something else such as Project Manager. The script can be downloaded from the script gallery below:


This code will replace “Owner” with “Project Manager” but can easily be updated.

To get the script to work you will need to download the following jQuery library: jquery-2.1.1.min.js – jQuery download Another version of this library may work but this was the one I used / tested with. Upload this library to your PWA site collection then update the script file with the correct location. I uploaded this file to the style library as you can see in the code below:


Alternatively you can reference a CDN if preferred.

Once the script is downloaded, upload this to the PWA site collection, in this example it was uploaded to the shared documents library. Select the PDP that has the Owner field displayed, then reference the uploaded script using the content editor web part:


In this example it is the Project Information PDP.

Once loaded, Owner will display as Project Manager:


One thing this script doesn’t handle is if you have another custom field on the page that contains “Owner” in the string, that will also get replaced 🙂

This is a very simple script but do test this before rolling out to production etc.

The script is provided “As is” with no warranties etc.
