This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft Project Server 2010 hotfix package that is dated April 9, 2013.
Issues that this hotfix package fixes
Consider the following scenario:
You create a proposal on the Project Center page in Project Server 2010.
You do not enter data into all the required fields.
You submit the proposal, and it is displayed unexpectedly as "checked in".
You edit the proposal. However, you do not enter data into all the required fields.
You submit the proposal again.
In this situation, the proposal is displayed unexpectedly as "checked out".
Assume that you set some values for the date range, filter, and group fields on the Approval Center page in Project Server 2010. When you move away from the Approval Center page and then move back to the Approval Center page, you experience the following issues:
The value is not retained in the date range field.
The filter and group fields are set. However, the filter and group settings are not applied to the data.
When resources in a project have many assignments in other projects in Project Server 2010, it takes longer than expected to publish the project.
Note The time that is required to publish the project increases if many projects that use the same resource are published at the same time. This can occur after you enable the Automatically publish the updates option.
