    Hello Experts,

    We are migrating the users of Project server 2013 to a new domain. Migration will be done in "waves" (not all at once).

    I know that for migrating the Project server users, we need to change Resource's logon name field by replacing the old domain with new domain name.

    But my question is - If I change the field directly via SQL query, is that recommended by Microsoft?

    I do not want to break the "warranty" by Microsoft by editing the Project Database directly.

    Also, which of the database should be updated and in which sequence for changing the Resource related Table?

    The owner of a project seems to bounce around from name to name when I want it to remain as one fixed owner - the one I set in the approval page. I think it changes to the last person to make a change or the person who has been viewing the project the most. Can anyone help to make it static?

    Hey there,

    We have a number of projects published to the Project Server.  I am an admin of the system.  There are some projects that have been published and a site has been created, where a user will navigate to the site, select Project Details and then click on Schedule and there will be a "Loading" icon spinning and the Project Schedule will not display on the screen.

    I am able to open the project in Project Pro 2013, edit is and publish it, but I cannot access the schedule via IE in PWA.

    For other projects it works, but for a select few projects, this is the behavior when trying to view the schedule via PWA.

    Any suggestions on how to get the project to load in PWA for editing?

  • I am finding that the bar styles dialogue box and the bar height dialogue box does not help me when I try to create bars of sufficient height.  It looks like all of the bars I am presented with are pencil thin and, also, the start (of bar) and finish (of bar) shapes are tiny.  Any pointers much appreciated. I am using Windows 10 and MS Project 2016

  • 01/10/16--23:17: Updating Project Progress
  • Hi, 

    I used to update the progress of my project in Ms Project Pro 2013 using the status date under the project tab. 

    Today I have updated the progress of my project, and I have noticed that Ms Project has started to calculate the progress of tasks which have no resources assigned to them! How can I let Ms project consider tasks without resources as late tasks and stop it from updating the progress of the late tasks ?

    We had Project Server 2010 deployed on a SharePoint 2010 farm. We had about 5 project plans uploaded but then they were not really used. No has been a user for more than a year.

    I know that we cannot uninstall the product.

    Currently we have all site collections across multiple web apps (even those not on the web app for PS) showing the Project features like "Project Web App Ribbon" and "Project Server Approval Content Type". We also see an option to use the "Microsoft Project Site" site template in the new site dialog.

    I have tried in the non-production test environment to de-provision the Project Server Service. Then make sure it is stopped. I was hoping this would retract these features and the template. No luck.

    My long picture view was that by doing this I could build the new 2013 instance and not include Project Server at all. When attaching the CDB's the absence of all Project Server Features and templates should give me a good clean upgrade.

    I see no solution to retract so am I out of luck? Is there more I can do? Perhaps some PowerShell? am I stuck with project Server even if unused forever?

    We use one of the standard reports called "Timesheet Actuals"...when we try to add the "Period Start Date" PivotTable field (using Add To Report Filter), it adds fine however the list of available period start dates is always unsorted and difficult to select without reviewing the entire list. I am providing an example of how the list there an easy way to get this to be viewed in a chronological order?

    Thanks in advance...

    In Project Center and resource Center, the search function was a very fast and convenient way to find a project or resource, by just typing in a part of the name and press search. If necessary you could add the required column.

    In Project / Resource Center 2010 I miss this function. "Filter" is a bit too many mouseclicks.

    Searching with "Find" (Ctrl-F) is risky: it only shows the resuling entries that are on that very screen, not the ones that are on the rest of the page after scrolling down...

    Could the good old "Search" come bak again?

    what is the default functionality of Project Server 2013 when a user creates a project with the name that already exists? 

    We just installed October 2015 CU and it seems that Project Server 2013 now doesn't give any warning when creating a project with the name that already exists. it simple creates a project with the same name and adds "_0" to it.  the users are not happy with it and ask us if this can be disabled.

    I have a problem where a user has accepted status updates and then when the user went to the History > Status Updates page to publish the updates the page displayed with the following error:

    General Unhandled Exception in _Statusing.ReadStatusApprovalHistoryForGridJson_

    This is a project server 2013 environment, on-prem, running the July 2015 CU.

    Has anyone seen this before or know a resolution for it?

    Is there a solution to enable the Advanced Properties in Project Pro 2013? It works on the templates, but I need it for the actual projects. Project Statistics works, but not Advanced Properties. I have a great deal of security, so I do not believe that is the issue.

    Dear all, maybe someone can help us.

    We have a Project Server 2013 customized installation for one of our customers.

    in this customization, major part of projects are created using PSI.

    the projects are created without any error, accesing through Project web Access we can see the Project, but if we try to open using Project Profesinal, it doesn't through any error, but it doesn't open it.

    The same error happens if we use Projtool.

    In 2010 Project versión it is not happening.

    Can anyone help us.? I'll be very grateful. Best regards

    I am looking to track a jobs completion by actual number count and not duration.  For example I have a goal of 3000 of this task to get done in a years time.  Like tracking a job with duration i would like to see a bar with a goal of 3000 and when i update the completion i can see how many i have done and what i have left.  If this possible?  I do not need to know cost.

    Hi Team,

    I want to find out the modified date of an individual task in Project server 2013, which table/column in database to refer to ?

    I have tried checking with TaskModfiedDate in dbo & draft schema(Task table), the modified date in this is reflected for all the rows/tasks, even when a single task has been modified.

    Many Thanks.

    For this i created one PDP for TOP Managers to entering the Data and created anothor PDP for Project Managers .
