The Project Support blog today published a post about a pretty nasty bug that has been found in Project Server 2013 and until very recently in Project Online that could cause you to lose resources across schedules.
Full details of the bug and the actions you can take to address the issue if you have encountered it can be seen at http://blogs.technet.com/b/projectsupport/archive/2014/02/06/project-server-2013-and-project-online-what-happened-to-my-resources.aspx.
If you have encountered any issues with lost resources including resource names turning into numbers, or mysterious material resources appearing, I would highly encourage you to read the above blog.
Last week I was lucky enough to present at Tech Ed Australia twice, once on an Ask the Experts panel for AvePoint and again presenting a full on breakout session along with Brian Farnhill called The SharePoint Developers Guide to Project Server 2010.
The official slide deck for the breakout session, and video / screencast will be available to view at (once processed): http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/TechEd/Australia/Tech-Ed-Australia-2011/OFS310.
I have also uploaded the original slide deck, to SlideShare which is embedded below, which includes all the notes and can be downloaded to make the most of those all important resource slide links.
In the session there was a number of code examples, the source code for each is available from the links below:
- Demand management workflow – example of the workflow and associated Playbooks file for Project Server demand management set up
- PSI – Example web parts to read project data and create project tasks via the PSI
- Project template – Project web template and codified content type overrides.
I will be taking some of Brian’s code and adding it to some bits I have been tinkering with in the coming weeks for a series of blog posts. Speaking at TechEd was both daunting and exhilarating, requiring a significant amount of preparation. Now that it’s over, normal blog post and newsgroup transmission should resume
