February 6, 2018, update for Project 2013 (KB4011679)

Gilt für: Project Standard 2013Project Professional 2013

This article describes update 4011679 for Microsoft Project 2013 that was released on February 6, 2018. 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 2013. It doesn't apply to the Office 2013 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 save a baseline in your project and then you save the project.
    • You save another baseline and you save the project, close it, and check it in.
    • You query the database and view the MOD_DATE property for the given baselines.
    • Another user opens the project and saves a different baseline.
    • You query the database and check the MOD_DATE property for the three baselines.

    In this situation, you find that the values of the MOD_DATE property for the baselines are the same. They should be different and reflect the date and time when you saved the baselines.

  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You have a task that has a resource assigned.
    • The task has a split in it. For example, there is a week of work, a week where no work exists and then a final week that has work.
    • In the timesheet for this task, you enter hours on the task so that the work is completed up to the date where the split begins.
    • The timesheet is submitted and then the status update is approved.
    • After that, the project is opened in Project Web App and the task finish date is adjusted to a date that's after where the actual work is completed. For example, the actual finish date is set to the middle of the week where there is no work.

    In this situation, the actual work is spread over the whole duration.

  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You have a Project Web App site and Project Professional 2013 in your organization.
    • You create some custom project fields and add them to your project detail pages (PDPs).
    • In Project Web App, you create a new project and add values for these custom fields.
    • You open the project in Project Professional 2013, make a change and then save the project.
    • You open the project in Project Web App and view the custom field values on the PDPs.

    In this situation, the values for these custom fields may be lost.
