Improvements and fixes

  • Updates the translation of the check in confirm dialog box in Ukrainian when you close a changed project in PWA.
  • Fixes the following bugs:
    • If you have work in a resource plan and save or submit a timesheet which contains nonworking time and overlaps the dates of the resource plan, your work values in the resource plan may change.
    • Consider the following scenario:
      • You enter time on a task in your timesheet and then submit the timesheet.
      • You enter time on the same task in a following timesheet and then save the timesheet.
      • You go back and recall the earlier timesheet.
      • You change time on the task and then resubmit the timesheet.
      • You go to the following timesheet and then add more time to the task.
      • You submit the timesheet.
      In this scenario, the updated task isn't submitted for approval.
    • When you publish a project, the SharePoint Visitors security group on the project site is truncated (users are deleted). This issue occurs even though the Enable Project Site Sync Project Permission sync setting is disabled.
    • When a team member views a task's status history, the accepted date of an update is incorrectly displayed as the submitted date. Similarly, when the status manager views the Status Update History page, the approval date is incorrectly displayed as the submitted date.
    • Changes to enterprise custom files within timesheets aren't submitted as a part of a status update. This issue occurs after you install September 13, 2016, update for Project Server 2013 (KB3118285).
