September 8, 2015, update for Project Server 2013 (KB3085505)

Applies to: Microsoft Project Server 2013 Service Pack 1

This article describes update KB3085505 for Microsoft Project Server 2013 that was released on September 8, 2015. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and Fixes

Fixes the following issues:
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • A task is published to your timesheet.
    • You add actual work to the task and submit a status update.
    • Your status manager approves the actual work that you submitted.
    • Your status manager locks the task that you submitted work to.
    • You delete and re-create your timesheet.
    • You submit your timesheet.
    In this scenario, upon recreating the timesheet, the locked task does not reappear on the timesheet. Therefore, as soon as the timesheet is submitted, the actual work that's previously been approved and is seen in the project isn't on the timesheet. This means the actual work in the project and the timesheet are no longer synchronized.
  • After a timesheet is submitted and approved, you can edit a task from the timesheet on the Assignment Detail page but you can't submit the changes for approval as status updates.
  • It may take a long time to load a resource plan if there are many resources and custom fields on the resource plans.
  • When you approve multiple status updates at one time, all remaining updates fail if a single update fails.
  • If the calendar on which a task is calculated does not have the default 8am and 5pm start times and finish times, when you edit the task's start or finish dates on the Task Details page, the newly calculated duration is wrong.
