    Hi all,

    We have MS Project 2010.

    I was wondering when does the ProjectServer Reporting DB get the submitted work on assignments?

    Does it happen after I publish the project or before (after approval?)

    Hello, we are on SharePoint 2013 SP1 and thus Project Server 2013 SP1 Enterprise Edition.

    I came on a few months ago and we are getting Project Server back online and in use.

    What do I need to do to get people to use Project Server?  When do we use it?  When is a SharePoint Team Site not good enough and when is Project Server required / recommended / needed?

    Is it that you can use Microsoft Project 2013 with it and so you can have it integrate?  Can't you just put that MPP (I think that's the file extension) into a document library and then use it?

    I am not trying to argue, just wondering and asking questions.

    I'd like to use Project Server more, I just wonder if there are recommendations for it.  Maybe if 10 people are involved, or if it will be planned to be over 6 months, etc.

    Are there best practices or recommendations that I might have not found / searched for?

    Thank you!

    Hi all,

    I have a team lead updating tasks (marking them 100% complete).  This is submitted to the PM for approval which is then seen in the approval centre and then approved.  This all works successfully.  However, the updated changes aren't being reflected in the schedule.  I have tried a few ways:

    - Approving as PM then opening the schedule and clicking 'Publish'

    - Setting the 'Manage Rules' to automatically publish

    Then I thought maybe the plan had to be checked back in for changes to take effect but that made no difference.  Am I just not understanding how this process works???

    Hi Guys,

    I have workflow with several stages and all stages have been marked for "Check In Required". What I need to know why some stages gets checked-in when project is Submitted. I built another sample workflow and used same stage and test and found that check-in was not happening with different set of stages. Means, if I have a same stages in 2 different workflows in one workflow that stage gets check-in and in another it won't. I can't figure out what causes it to check-in.

    Thanks, Kashif

    New to Project Server.

    Client has Project server 2010

    When a new request is raised the team then creates sites for the specific projects, and then "Synchronize" the site collection
    After the site is created and Synchronized when we click on the site we get accessed denied.

    The users added to the group "Web Administrators Group (Microsoft Project Server)" should be able to create sites and make all the changes required. But in my case they get accessed denied. i Checked the group permissions and made sure that all the check boxes were checked.

    The same when done with the site collection admin account everything works fine.

    What wrong am i doing, please guide.

  • 05/03/16--02:52: Timesheet Issue
  • Using Project Server 2013.

    I have created 4 tasks in a Project Plan with 1 day duration & their dates are: 26, 27, 28 & 29 April 2016.

    I couldn't see 26, 27 & 28 April tasks in Timesheet but can see 29th April in next period of Timesheet. Why I couldn't see these 3 tasks? Did I miss anything or going wrong while configuring Timesheet?

    And please share Timesheet configuration best tutorial/video/blog.

    We vcan only acces a project file from project online browser, but if we try to open I MSP2013. I will not show the project, but It will be checked out. Error message."the following job failed to complete. Checkin. 9000 (0x2328)

    Strange since its opening the file that doesn't work...

    Then I need to force-check in.  How do I take  a copy of the file and try to open it locally or save in another format. There is no back-up in project online/PWA so how to restore file?

    According my investigation it this is is necessary have SharePoint 2016 to use Project Server 2016? Or can i use only Project without SharePoint? 

    And about licensing, if a client only what work with project, he need pay for SharePoint and Project Server or in this case pay only for the Project Server Licensing.

    Hello All

    Is it possible to reference enterprise custom fields in a lookup field created in a list?

    Essentially we want to be able to have the project center list of project names and one other custom field referenced in two different lookup fields on a different list.

    Thank you

    1) I plan to use MS Project online combined with MS Project Lite for my project. Do I see the modifications my colleagues perform with their Lite Version on the tasks they are responsible for?

    3) How does the MS Project Lite interface look like? (I need it to be very simple for my team members)

    2) What are the differences between MS Project Online and MS Project Online with Office 365?

    I'm on a Linux server terminal.  I can execute system() commands but I can't seem to get the output. It just gives me 0 for successful. How can I get the output stream for system-run commands?

  • 02/01/16--00:32: view dropdown list
  • I use Project Server 2013 and Internet Explorer 11.

    I have an issue with the dropdown list in the views as I only see one value. For example in the Project Center, the only option that I have is the "Summary" view. For some strange reason, however, I see the whole list in the Resource Assignment view.

    I assume that there must be a setting somewhere as it used to work a few days ago.
