  • A running timer job is orphaned when its server is removed.
  • In a site that contains the ampersand (&) character in its URL, when you export a survey list to an Excel spreadsheet, Excel should open a new workbook that contains one worksheet that is named owssvr. However, the owssvr worksheet isn't opened.

This security update contains fixes for the following nonsecurity issues in Project Server 2016:

  • When you use either the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge Chromium browser, even if you select Cancel in the Edit Resource or in Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Tables pages, the resource, enterprise field or lookup table remains checked out. For this fix to work, you have to install Chrome or Chromium browser version 81 or later.
  • When you use either the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge Chromium browser, if you change a View setting such as a column width or order, the changes do not persist if the view, filter, or grouping is applied to pages such as the Project Center, Resource Center, Approvals, Tasks, or Timesheets. For example, after you chang View from Summary to Cost, and then you refresh the page, the View value remains as Summary. For this fix to work, you have to install the Chrome or Chromium browser version 81 or later.
