Fixes the following issues for Project Server 2016:
  • When you change a resource in the resource center in Project 2016, you receive the following error message if the resource has an email language set:
    The e-mail language for this resource is not valid.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • A project in which tasks have been published to team members is checked out.
    • As a team member, you assign yourself to a task from the project.
    • You add actual work to the task.
    • You submit the task and work for approval.
    • The new task is approved.
    • The task on which the assignment was made, and it's deleted from the project and the project is then saved, and checked in.
    In this situation, the update transaction is listed as successful even though the update isn't  applied.
  • When you add an assignment to an existing task on a timesheet, you receive the following error message:
    error loading.
    This issue occurs if the project name has the "&" character.
  • Within the schedule web part, if you apply a filter on an enterprise field that has a lookup, no tasks are displayed for the project.
  • When a team member submits time against an administrative task and the task requires approval, an e-mail notification intended for the approver is sent to the team member.
  • When you switch to a different filter type on the Manage Queue Jobs page, you may receive the following error message if many jobs are present:
    Sorry, something went wrong.

  • Incorrect availability or capacity is displayed on the Capacity Planning page. For example, 7.5h becomes 8h.
