This article describes update 4486712 for Microsoft Project 2016 that was released on November 3, 2020.

Be aware that the update in the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2016. It doesn't apply to the Office 2016 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home (see What version of Office am I using?).

Improvements and fixes

This update fixes the following issues:

  • In some cases when you view tasks, you may see a resource named Unassigned resource even though no resources are assigned to the task.

  • If you have a resource that has multiple cost rates, when you assign the resource to a fixed work task, the cost values, both scalar and timephased, are different from those if the resource doesn't have multiple cost rates.

  • Fixes an issue where Project may crash if you apply a Group by to a Resource Usage or Resource Sheet view and then insert the Can Level field to it.
