Issues that this hotfix package fixes
When you add custom fields in a task and make them available on the Approval Preview page, some custom fields in the task are not displayed.
You have task that meets the following conditions:
The task is set to 100% Complete.
The task contains a split. This means that work occurs in more than one segment.
The task has an Enterprise Task Custom Field (ETCF).
When that associated ETCF is updated through the Project Server Interface (PSI), the task duration is recalculated incorrectly.
You save tasks from Microsoft Office Project 2007 to a computer that is running Microsoft Office Project Server 2007. When you reopen the project later, the tasks are not in the same order that you left them.
When a timesheet is created on behalf of another user, the custom field data in the timesheet is not available.
If you add incremental actuals as a nondefault assignment owner, actual data is lost.
When you accept updates for previously completed tasks without an assignment in Project Server, the task assignment may be extended past the finish date. This gives the task a trailing split and marks the task as less than 100% completed.
Baseline values for a project summary task are not updated in the Project Web Access (PWA) views when you republish the project from the client computer.
The Statusing.ReadStatusApprovalDetails Web service method returns incorrect data if the task data for the assignment is not updated.
Consider the following scenario. You use the ReviewTimesheet Web part to review multiple timesheet approvals. When you move between timesheet approvals, you enable or you disable the viewing of timesheet header information. Then, you approve the displayed timesheet. In this scenario, when you check the queue, there is a blocking timesheet job and the timesheets are not approved.
When a user has an assignment with a complex actual work contour, the processing of the new contour may cause the job to be stuck in the queue at 40% when the status update is processed.
When Project Server 2007 is installed on a computer that is running Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007, the ActiveX control on the Task Updates page displays the following message and the data never loads up:
This issue also occurs in the ActiveX control on the Resource Center view.
A sub project could not be saved after you open and save the master project and the sub project at the same time and the same client.
The start date of a task moves unexpectedly to an earlier date when you accept certain updates.
