If you do want to see your summary tasks appearing in your 2010 Resource Assignments view, like they did in Project Server 2007, then head over to Rob Cason’s new posting on the Project Support blog - Project Server 2010- Unable to Add Summary Task to Resource Assignments View. Good job Rob!
A few new posts this week over on the Project Support blog.
I’ve covered off a few of the issues we see our early customers struggling with – signing up, the difference between Project Online and Project Pro for Office 365, licensing the users and sharing access to the Project Web App (PWA) – and a quick mention of trials. Head over to Getting started with Project Online for the full story.
Just posted the April 2013 Cumulative Update announcement for Project and Project Server 2013 and Project and Project Server 2010 on the Project Support blog. No updates for Project or Project Server 2007 – but I have included the WSS and MOSS updates. *** Update 4/12 - the MOSS server package does actually contain just a Project Server 2007 fix - for the switch around of the previous/next buttons - thanks Adrian for pointing this one out - I'd missed that one. ***
Also an important posting concerning the March 2013 Public Update for Project Server 2013 where you will get an error at the conclusion of the SharePoint Configuration Wizard that ‘Task upgrade has failed with a PostSetupConfigurationTaskException’ and in your upgrade logs you will see EventID ajxnf and errors like ‘WARNING Project Web Instance 'SharePoint - 80:PWA' can only be upgraded once its database 'ProjectWebApp' has been upgraded. ERROR Cannot upgrade [ProjectSite Name=f959de76-c4e9-4fa7-91a5-d9d9e287714b]. 38c20f9c-fdcc-b07a-f785-09836d46c179. The resolution is described in the post on the Project Support blog – and requires the April 2013 Cumulative Update for Project Server 2013 – details of which can be found in the April 2013 CU posting mentioned above.
Thanks to Jorge Ray (sorry Ray!) for this great blog post - http://blogs.technet.com/b/raymond_ris/archive/2013/04/04/cannot-open-or-create-word-documents-in-sharepoint-2013-with-office-2010-and-project-2013.aspx explaining how, after loading Project 2013 this can make your SharePoint libraries default to the 2013 versions of the protocol handlers. You might get a Url such as ms-word:nft|u|http://o15psvr:8080/Shared Documents/Forms/template.dotx|s|http://o15psvr:8080/Shared Documents for Word or ms-excel:ofv|u|http://sharePointDocumentlibraryURL for Excel.
The fix is easy – go take a look at Ray’s blog.
