Improvements and fixes
- When timesheets are submitted, the "Reporting (Timesheet Save)" queue job is created. However, this job may run very slowly. This creates a backup of queue jobs and causes other slow performance problems.
- Project Web App instances that have many timesheets or timesheet views may experience a time-out when you create timesheet views or modify existing timesheet views. This can prevent you from creating timesheets or opening existing timesheets.
