This article describes the issues that are fixed in the Microsoft Project Server 2010 hotfix package that is dated July 10, 2013.


Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • When you edit a project that contains cross-project links and enterprise custom fields in Project Web App, task durations are changed unexpectedly.

  • When you edit a custom field from the Assignment Details page in Project Web App, you cannot input more than 50 characters.

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You enable the Protected Actuals feature and then create a task.

    • A team member reports an actual work, and the actual work is approved.

    • You edit a work or remaining work of the task in a Project view in Project Web App.

    In this situation, you receive the following error message:

    Your last edit changes actual work on the project. Currently Project Web App is set up to protect actuals on tasks.

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You create a task that has predecessor relationship, multiple assignments and at least one assignment that has actual work applied.

    • You report and approve actual work for one of the other assignments.

    • The work is reported earlier than scheduled and earlier than when the actual work that is already reported on the other assignments.

    In this situation, the actual work on the assignment is scheduled incorrectly. Therefore, the start date and duration of the task is calculated incorrectly.

  • When you use Project Server Interface (PSI) to update a project that contains multiple cost rate table entries in Project Server 2010, resource costs are calculated incorrectly.

  • Unnecessary user account synchronization occurs and you experience performance issues in Project Web App. For example, you cannot log on the server.

  • When you use a template that contains a null task to create a project in Project Web App, the project cannot be displayed in Project views.
    Note A null task is a blank row between rows.

  • Totals for grouping rows on the Approvals page in Project Web App are not rolled up.
