February 9, 2016, update for Project Server 2013 (KB3114737)

This article describes update KB3114737 for Microsoft Project Server 2013, which was released on February 9, 2016. This update has a prerequisite.

Improvements and fixes

Fixes the following issues:
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create a project in Project Professional 2013.
    • In the new project, you disable the Actual cost are always calculated by Project calculation option under Project Options in the Schedule section.
    • You create a task that has a duration value of 20d, and then you assign the task to an Enterprise resource.
    • You insert the Cost and Actual Cost columns into the view, and then you update the values for the two columns.
    • You save and publish the project to Project Server 2013.
    • You create a report that is based on an OLAP cube that is generated from the server reporting data.
    In this scenario, the task costs for this project are incorrect in the report because an additional cost for unassigned resources is added.
  • When you apply a filter on an enterprise field that has a lookup-table within the schedule web part, no tasks are displayed for the project.
  • When you save new resources to Project Server by using Project Professional, nothing happens. This issue occurs if the resources have a logon account defined. If the WindowsAccountEditable registry key is enabled, the resources can be saved successfully.
  • You receive the following error message when you view the timesheet:
    The view failed to load. Press OK to reload this view with the default settings. Press Cancel to select another view.
  • The Approvals page doesn't roll up totals on grouping rows for the timephased data.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • A team member adds actual work in their timesheet.
    • The team member submits their timesheet.
    • The timesheet approver accepts the update. At this point, the team member sees the Process Status field showing the expected Awaiting Approval message for the status update.
    • The project manager opens the project but doesn't accept the updates.
    • The project manager saves and publishes the project.
    • The team member recreates the timesheet.
    In this case, the Process Status field is empty instead of showing the expected Awaiting Approval message.
  • When you add an existing assignment to the timesheet from a project, you receive the following error message:
    error loading.
    This issue occurs if the name of the project has the "&" character.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • A user enters time phased actual work on an assignment and submits the work for approval.
    • The status manager approves the update.
    • The user changes the assignment start date and then submits the change.
    • The status manager approves the update.
    In this scenario, the time phased actual work may move to another date.
  • A summary task may not correctly compute the rollup value of a custom field if the field is configured with the following properties:
    • A date type
    • A minimum rollup
    • A formula where the value may be null (N/A)
  • If you only change the project description on the Project Details page, the description isn't saved. This issue occurs after you install August 11, 2015, update for Project Server 2013 (KB3055018).
  • On the Resource Availability page, you try to deselect some resources, but the resources stay selected if certain characters (for example, "<", ">", or "&") are contained in the resource names.
