This article describes update 4018379 for Microsoft Project 2013 that was released on May 1, 2018. This update has a prerequisite.

Be aware that the update in the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2013. It doesn't apply to the Office 2013 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?)

Improvements and fixes

This update fixes the following issues:

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You create a local project with some tasks and save it as a file.

    • You create a second project, you have the first project share resources from it and you save it as a local file.

    • You assign the resource to the tasks.

    • You save the projects.

    • You upload the project file and shared resource file to a SharePoint Online document library.

    • You open the project file from the document library, and you receive the message:

      This file shares resources from a resource pool

    • After you select OK, the shared resource file is also opened.

    • You add a new task to the project file and assign it to a resource.

    • You save the project file and close both files.

    In this scenario, when you reopen the project file, the link to the shared resource file is lost.

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • As a team member, you open your timesheet and enter work for two adjacent days.

    • On the first day, you set the actual work value back to zero.

    • On the first day, you set 8 hours of non-working time on an administrator task (for example, vacation).

    • You send a status update for approval.

    • You open the previous week timesheet.

    • You enter actual work values.

    • You send the timesheet for approval and the status manager approves it.

    In this case, the actual work that's entered on the second day of the two days moves to the first day. The actual work should not move when the status update is applied to the project.

     

  • Consider the following scenario:

    • You create a fixed duration task that is 100% complete.

    • You create a custom calendar and add a one-day exception in the range of task duration.

    • You change the task calendar to the custom calendar, and then you see that the duration reduces by one day.

    • You save and then close the project.

    • You reopen and recalculate the project, and then check the finish date.

    In this scenario, the actual finish date is shifted to one day later.
