Improvements and Fixes

Fixes the following issues:
  • Assume that you browse to a Project Web App (PWA) site on a computer where the time zone setting differs from the server that hosts the PWA site. When you browse to the Tasks page, the active time period may be incorrect.
  • Assume that you create a new Enterprise custom field, and then you enter a formula that refers to the Task Calendar field. When you save the Enterprise custom field, you receive the following error message:
    The custom field could not be saved due to the following reason(s):
    This formula contains references to one or more fields that do not exist in the system. Correct the formula and try again.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You link two tasks by using a Start-to-Start (SS) dependency. In this case, the predecessor is a summary task and the successor is an ordinary task.
    • You make some changes to the project plan by using a Project Server Interface (PSI) application.
