Issues that this hotfix package fixes

  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You select the check box of the Single Entry Mode option on the Timesheet Settings and Defaults page on a Project server.
    • You start Project 2013 and connect to the server.
    • You create many tasks that have long names.
    • You link the tasks together in a finish-to-start relationship.
    • You assign the tasks to a user.
    • You save and publish the project.
    • The user logs on to Project Web App (PWA) and opens the Timesheet. The user clicks Add Row, and then clicks the Select from Existing Assignments option.
    In this scenario, you see an error message similar to the following:
    Sorry, something went wrong
    An unexpected error has occurred.
  • If an instance of PWA for Project Server 2013 has multiple event handlers defined for the same event, the server processes that listen to the given event may fail completely. For example, you may be unable to create new projects or submit timesheets. 
  • Assume that you open Manage Timesheets on the PWA Settings page. When you try to open a timesheet, the timesheet may not be loaded. Additionally, you receive the following error message: 
    The view failed to load. Press OK to reload this view with the default settings. Press Cancel to select another view.
  • Assume that a team member creates a sub task under a summary task of a project in PWA. Then, the team member sends it for approval. When the project manager opens the project in Project Professional 2013, the newly created sub task is located in the wrong place, and it becomes a summary task.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create a security group in PWA and add a user to the group.
    • You set the same Resource Breakdown Structure (RBS) value for the user and a project manager.
    • You create a new category and select the The Project Owner has the same RBS value as the User check box.
    • You add the newly created security group to this category and select the View Project Site check box.
    • The project manager creates a new Enterprise project and publishes the project.
    In this scenario, the user is added into the Team Member SharePoint security group in the SharePoint site of this project, which is unexpected. This gives the user contributor rights to the content in the project site instead of reader rights. 
  • Assume that you create a new enterprise custom text field in PWA, and you add a long description for this field. When you add the custom field into a web part of a project detail page, the word wrapping works incorrectly in the field description.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create a new enterprise custom text field, and you select the Behavior controlled by workflow check box.
    • You add the custom field to the Project Information project detail page.
    • You create a new enterprise project type, and you select Project Information for the New Project Page field, and then you select Project Information for the Available Project Detail Pages field.
    • You create a new project by using the newly created enterprise project type, and you change the value of the date fields in the Project Information page, and then you save the project.
    In this scenario, when you refresh the page, the value of the date fields, such as the project start date, are not saved as expected. 
  • Assume that you start Project 2013 and connect to Project server, then you open a project. When you try to add new dependencies for the project by clicking the Add new dependency… link in the deliverable pane, it takes longer time than expected to load and returns the following error message:
    An unspecified error has occurred.

    Error Code:0 Error

    Message: The argument value is not valid.
    Additionally, Project's connection state changes to Work Offline.
  • Assume that you can access a given Team Builder view by clicking Build Team button in the Projects tab in PWA. Then, your access permission to this Team Builder view is removed. However, you still have access permission to other Team Builder views. When you try to visit other Team Builder views by clicking Build Team, you receive the following error message:
    Access Denied.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create an Active Directory group and add a user to the group, and the user name contains semicolon.
    • You sync the Active Directory group to a security group in PWA.
    • You click Regional Settings in the Site Settings page, and then you change the Locale, for example, to Swedish.
    • You start Project Professional 2013 to create a project that contains a task, you assign the user to the task, and then you save and publish the project to Project server.
    • You create a new task for this project in PWA, and then you try to copy the user name from the original task and paste it to the Resource Name column for the newly created task.
    In this scenario, a red bullet that indicates an error appears on the left of the task. 
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You start Project 2013 to create a project that has a budget cost resource assigned to a project summary task.
    • You set a value for Budget Cost in the Task Usage view or in the Resource Usage view.
    • You insert the Baseline Budget Cost column in the Gantt Chart.
    • You save a baseline for the project, and the Baseline Budget cost becomes the same value as you set for the Budget Cost.
    • You save and publish the project.
    • You query the reporting database and find the Baseline Budget Cost as expected.
    • You perform a reporting database refresh operation.
    In this scenario, when you query the Reporting Database (RDB), the Baseline Budget cost is missing.

  • Assume that you delete the default out-of-the-box Tasks Summary project view in a Project Server 2010 server, and then you upgrade from Project Server 2010 to Project Server 2013. When you log on to PWA and try to access the Project Center, you receive the following error message: 
    You do not have sufficient permissions to view the specified page. Please contact your administrator for permissions to view this page.
  • Consider the following scenario:
    • You create a project and assign a resource to a task.
    • You set a baseline for a project in Project 2013, and you save it.
    • You change the units of the resource assignment, and you set a new baseline (Baseline 1) for this project.
    • You save and publish the project to the Project server.
    In this scenario, the cumulative baseline by day data is incorrect in the reporting database because it was aggregated across all baselines.
