This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft Project Server 2010 hotfix package that is dated October 30, 2012.


Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • Assume that you configure Project Server 2010 in two or more zones that are accessed by using different URLs. Additionally, assume that you create Project sites that contain a Project web part. In this situation, when you try to connect to the Project site from a zone that differs from the zone in which the Project site is created, you receive the following error message from the web part:
    Cannot communicate with the server. Verify your connection and try again.
    BUG #: 33877 (OfficeQFE)
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You have an enterprise resource that is assigned to a task in a plan.
    • The resource enters actual work in a timesheet and saves (but does not submit) the timesheet in Project Web App.
    • You set the Publish field in the task to No," and then you publish the plan.
    • You set the Publish field in the task to Yes," and then you publish the plan.
    • The resource submits the timesheet update for approval.
    In this scenario, the actual work is not submitted in Approval Center.
    BUG #: 33922 (OfficeQFE)
  • Assume that a resource has the Max Units field set to a value that is not 100 percent. Additionally, assume that the default task type for a project is "Fixed Duration." The resource creates a new task in Project Web App and adds the task to the project. In this situation, the task is displayed in the project with a high amount of work. Additionally, the task does not appear in the Approval Center and causes an error on the approval page.
    BUG #: 33936 (OfficeQFE)
  • Assume that a delegate user makes corrections to a timesheet that was previously rejected in Project Web App and then sends the timesheet for approval. In this situation, time that is added to the lines that already contain approved status updates cannot be resubmitted and approved.
    BUG #: 34021 (OfficeQFE)
  • Assume that you try to edit an existing project in Project Web App while you are using Internet Explorer 10. However, occasionally you cannot edit the project.
    BUG #: 34049 (OfficeQFE)
  • When you create and load a timesheet in Project Web App, the process takes longer than expected.
    BUG #: 34072 (OfficeQFE)
  • When you create a project plan from a template in Project Web App, the value of the Publish field is not copied from the template.
    BUG #: 34153 (OfficeQFE)
  • Assume that you create an enterprise project template in Microsoft Office Project Professional 2010 in which you configure the default start time and the default finish time at the project level. Then, you create a new project plan that is based on the template. In this situation, the default start time and the default finish time are those from the enterprise global template instead of the template from which thenew project was created.
    BUG #: 34206 (OfficeQFE)
  • Assume that you set the WADMIN_USER_SYNC_SETTING setting to a value greater than one in the published database of Project Server 2010. When you try to add a user to a project by using the project permissions feature, the user is not added to the project site.
    BUG #: 34278 (OfficeQFE)
  • Assume that you enter the actual work for a task by using Project Web App. However, when you click Status Updates to view task update history, the actual work column is blank.
    BUG #: 34344 (OfficeQFE)
  • When all task updates are submitted to Project Server 2010, the OnStatusSubmitted event returns a NULL value instead of an array of GUIDs that match the submitted updates.
    BUG #: 34416 (OfficeQFE)
