May 10, 2016, update for Project Server 2013 (KB3115036)

Applies to: Microsoft Project Server 2013 Service Pack 1

This article describes update KB3115036 for Microsoft Project Server 2013, which was released on May 10, 2016. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and fixes

  • When you try to edit the name of an enterprise resource in your project, a better translation is available for the Japanese language for the following message that appears:
    Changes to enterprise resources will be lost.

    You can modify an enterprise resource in a project for modeling purposes and publishing the project will include any changes. Your changes will be overwritten when the project is next opened.

  • Fixes the following issues:
    • On your timesheet, you enter an actual work value that's after the task start date or you enter an actual start date that's after the task's start date. When the status update is applied to the project, the task's actual start date isn't updated accordingly to the assignment actual start date.
    • Assume that you press the Tab key to move the focus on a column header on the Manage Timesheets page. Then, you press the Enter key in order to sort by this field. In this situation, the focus is lost from the column header, and you have to press the Tab key many times in order to return to the column header.
    • Self-assigned timesheet lines may display an incorrect TASKUID in the OData feed.
    • The project start date on a project detail page, such as Project Details, is different from the date in the Project Information dialog box in Project Professional 2013.
    • When you try to query OData from a workflow in Project Server 2013, an access denied error message is displayed.
    • Consider the following scenario:
      • You have an enterprise project level flag field defined.
      • You have this field displayed on a Project Detail Page (PDP).
      • A user goes to the PDP page and by-default sees the value of No.
      • The user saves and moves to a different PDP page.
      • The user then goes to a different or the previous same PDP page.
      In this case, the value is empty or NULL versus the expected No value.
