October 3, 2017, update for Project 2016 (KB4011141)

Applies to: Project Professional 2016Project Standard 2016

This article describes update 4011141 for Microsoft Project 2016 that was released on October 3, 2017. This update has a prerequisite.

Be aware that the update in the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2016. It doesn't apply to the Office 2016 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?)

Improvements and fixes


This update fixes the following issues:

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You decide to edit a project in Project Web App or Project 2016.
    • You enter time-phased Actual or Actual Overtime work on an assignment and notice that it's no longer scheduled the way that you expect it should be.
    • You adjust the assignment start dates and finish dates to reflect the schedule that you have expected.

    In this situation, additional actual work that you don't enter may be applied to the assignment unexpectedly. 

  • Assume that you have a Project Server 2016 and Project Professional 2016, when you save a project that's connected to the Project Server, you may receive the following error message:

    Change would modify work entered by a team member

    We can't make that change because Project Web App is set to only allow actual work to be entered by team members through Timesheets or My Work.

    This issue occurs after the July 5, 2017, update for Project 2016 (KB3203476) is installed.
