You can customize how data is published and refreshed by modifying the project mapping file.

Also the mapping file controls the publishing behavior.

You can customize the behavior when tasks are published or refreshed. You can change which fields in Team Foundation are mapped to Microsoft Project fields. You can control if fields are only published, or both published and refreshed.
