    I encountered an interesting behavior of custom "cost" fields on my PDP pages after September 2018 CU update.
    Lets say I have a cost field named "Budget" on one of my PDP pages for enterprise project types and when I check out the project and try to enter a value into the Budget field, it keeps finishing and then deleting my entry.

    If I try to enter a value of 15000 (€), system just takes the first one or two numbers (it actually depends on the speed of typing the number) and places the currency symbol at the end, other numbers are then written after the currency symbol (15,00€000) and the entry is deleted altogether. The only way to insert a value into the filed is to copy/paste the whole thing!

    Field is not workflow controlled, I'm in the role of administrator and other users experience the same thing. I also tried to change the value in MS Project 2016 (Project Information) and no such behavior is experienced there.
    Sharepoint 2013/PWA is installed on premises.

    Good Day,

    We have a user who was attempting to check in her project which ended in error:

    • GeneralQueueJobFailed (26000) -ManagedModeTaskSynchronization.SynchronizeTaskListInManagedModeMessage. Details: id='26000' name='GeneralQueueJobFailed' uid='98001440-407f-e611-ab5b-a0d3c10627cc' JobUID='1c94c472-610b-4e9b-a7b7-db6b7bf8b965' ComputerName='b6c7a8c6-9f17-4c8e-b2c1-022ba92b5aea' GroupType='ManagedModeTaskSynchronization' MessageType='SynchronizeTaskListInManagedModeMessage' MessageId='1' Stage='' CorrelationUID='300ea29d-5e51-00ce-3d1f-b610d42b19b7'. For more details, check the ULS logs on machine b6c7a8c6-9f17-4c8e-b2c1-022ba92b5aea for entries with JobUID1c94c472-610b-4e9b-a7b7-db6b7bf8b965.

    It still appears as checked out to the user and when I click the link in Project center is says:

    The Check-in operation has been queued, but is taking longer than expected to process. To check the status of the Check-in queue job, either visit the My Queue Jobs page, or refresh the page.

    Click OK to close the project and return to Project Center.

    As a support admin, is there anything I can do to fix the issue or will it need to be resolved by the owner of the project? Please lists steps to correct the error. Any feedback approcaited!

    I am using Project Server 2013 with a SharePoint workflow. What I am trying to do is to set the value of a custom field that reads its values from a lookup table (this field will show users as options to select from). In the SharePoint workflow, there is an option to set a project field and I am using it. I selected this action and I have selected my field "Name" as the project field and a workflow lookup value as the value that will be assigned.

    My problem is that when I publish the workflow and start it, it will suspend in this stage with the following message:

    " Details: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the workflow instance. Exception details: System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null. Parameter name: Input at Microsoft.Activities.Hosting.Runtime.Subroutine.SubroutineChild.Execute(CodeActivityContext context) at System.Activities.CodeActivity.InternalExecute(ActivityInstance instance, ActivityExecutor executor, BookmarkManager bookmarkManager) at System.Activities.Runtime.ActivityExecutor.ExecuteActivityWorkItem.ExecuteBody(ActivityExecutor executor, BookmarkManager bookmarkManager, Location resultLocation)"

    As you know, there are two options to assign a value to a custom lookup filed, one is to select a value from a drop down (shows the lookup table values) and the other is to use a workflow lookup value. When I select a value from the drop down, the workflow works perfectly but when I use the workflow lookup value it gives me this error.

    I would like to understand why I am receving a null error when I am assigning a value using the  approach.

    Thank you in advance for your support.

    Mark as answer if it was an answer for you question.. Please don't hesitate to ask for any further help..

    Hi All,

    Your kind support is required on the said issue. The issue is when I open the project in editing mode in the project web app then the schedule and project site is open and working fine but the details page is not accessible to some user (custom groups members)


    As shown in the above image, the administrator has rights on all the details but I have created some custom group for each department, therefore, the users of this group have access to the schedule and project sitebut the Project Details PC-2 is not showing to it due to the rights issue as shown in the below image.

    Kindly support me on the problem.........

    Dear Folks

    Wanted to check, can I extract the Notes column data in the reports SSRS/PowerBI, which gets saved during Task Progress Updates. So that the Project Owner can know the exact reason that why a particular task is getting delayed?

    Please suggest.

    3. Click Add engagement, fill required parameters: Resource, Project, Start, Finish, Allocate resource by

    4. Click Accept After the event is processed the State of resource type reservations becomes Commited (not Proposed)

    The following parameters are set in Resource profile:

    - Resource requires approval for all project assignments = " Yes"

    - Default Booking Type = " Proposed"

    I will be grateful for the help who faced a similar problem and solved it. Thanks beforehand!

    I want to create custom fields with multilanguage support. I haven't tried yet but ProjTool uses PSI LookupTable class to create multilanguage lookup tables. It's fine but what about PDPs, EPTs and custom field names?

    For example in Dynamics CRM there is a translation.xml file. We can export, translate custom values and re-import it. Is there a solution in project server like that?

    There is a forum thread at but I'm not sure that is the same issue.

    Best regards,

    PS 2013. Task updates, not timesheets.

    I'm trying to find out if there's a setting that would allow the user who submitted a task update through PWA to receive an e-mail notification if the PM rejected that update.  The PM can reject with comment, but I don't see where the comment ever makes it back to the user.  Any ideas?

    Dear Forum,

    did anyone have experienced adding all mailbox users to public folder in office 365?

    we are using office 365 and we deployed public folder and we don't want to add user by manual to public folder, because we have around 600 mailbox users, so how we can add all users by script or command line?

    thanks forum.

    I am working on project online project for a client, and a requirement was to add task updates only from timesheets. 

    The task assignment email contains a link to the task center. Is there a way to change the link to direct to timesheets?

    I have a customer receiving the error below when publishing a specific project.  They are on project online.  Typically for this type of error I see the issue being related to text values in date fields for manually scheduled tasks.  This is not the case for this particular project.  If anyone has see this and has info it'd be appreciated.
