• Reports – If the resource’s profile does not contain a Display Name, the reports display special character and cannot calculate the working hours of the resource. For example, the resource is DomainabcJSmith. The Resource field will show as DomainabcJSmith. And the Resource Timeline Management cannot display the working hours
• (Microsoft Project Add-in) Microsoft Project 2010 contains a component that is required during the installation of the Bamboo Microsoft Project Add-In in order to for it to work correctly with Microsoft Project 2013. To work with MS Project 2013 and Bamboo Microsoft Project Add-in, Microsoft Office 2010 requires to be installed first. See KB.12977 for more information

• If you import or export tasks to and from Microsoft Project using the Bamboo Microsoft Project Add-in, it skips the accounts that contain characters such as “[” and “]”.
• Addin – New/Merge/Append to Microsoft Project – If the Cost and Actual Cost fields for the tasks and parent tasks are populated using Cost (Enter) and Actual Cost (Enter), when exporting to Microsoft Project for new/merge/append, the Cost and Actual fields in the Microsoft Project will not match what is in PM Central’s SharePoint tasks list. 
• When tasks are exported to Microsoft Project using the “Merge” option with the Bamboo Microsoft Project Add-in, child tasks may be merged to the wrong summary task if multiple summary tasks have the same name. 
• When importing tasks from Microsoft Project to a SharePoint Tasks list using the Bamboo Microsoft Project Add-in, the Constraint Date field cannot be updated if the Constraint Date in Microsoft Project is equal to “NA”.
• Addin – Export to MS Project – Show Duration in MS Project don’t like Duration in SharePoint Task list with use case working mode between MS project and Task Master different. => WAD
• The User Profile Import Utility can only map User Profile properties with a privacy setting of “Everyone”.
• If data displayed using the Data-Viewer Web Part is grouped and a group of data spans multiple pages, all data for the same group may not be displayed continuously on the next page. For example, page 2 may start with a different data group instead of continuing the list of items from page 1. 
• After exporting a PM Central Tasks list using the “Connect to Microsoft Project” feature, new tasks created in Microsoft Project with a blank Start Date and Due Date will be incorrectly updated when the task is synchronized to PM Central with the “Synchronize” feature. The Start Date will be set to the Project Start Date from Microsoft Project, and the Due Date will be the next day. 
• When Microsoft Project synchronizes task updates to a connected PM Central Tasks lists, the “Assigned To” field value is not copied if it was updated in Microsoft Project to a resource name that does not exist in Active Directory.

• When users create a new Web Part Page in the portfolio site and try to make this page the default page updating the URL in /_Layouts/AreaWelcomePage.aspx, they will receive the following error: “The site is not valid. The ‘Pages’ document library is missing.” This is a SharePoint limitation. 
• Users logged into the portfolio site with a site collection administrator account will not see rolled-up data in the following tabs: My Summary, Resources, Schedules, Issues and Reporting. This is a SharePoint limitation. To change the limits, go to Central Administration > Manage Web Applications. Select the desired site collection, and then select General Settings > Resource Throttling from the ribbon to change the values. 
• In the “Tasks” tab of the project site under Tracking View, the headers for “Cost”, “Actual Cost” and “% Complete” are not aligned to the left like in other fields

Known Issues:

• When upgrading PM Central, you must restart the Windows SharePoint Services Timer service before upgrading PM Central sites in Central Administration.
• When customizing any site page in SharePoint Designer, you must check out the page first. When you are finished editing in SharePoint Designer, save the page and check it back in.
• When using Workflow Conductor with PM Central, user cannot deploy workflow using the “Deploy” button. This issue occurs with Windows 2012 Standard or Data Center and Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013.
• In the Resource Center > Resource Assignments, the Gantt Chart shows JavaScript error when the Project Name contains special characters such as ‘, {, [, …, *.
• From the project site > Tasks > Progress Management, when click the Update Project Cost & Schedule, the data in the added columns will display with extra data in the additional columns and with the text “System.Data.DataRowView”. By refresh the page or click Ctrl + F5, the data will show as normal.
• Workflow Conductor and Windows Server 2012 – In Windows Server 2012 environment, if deploy using the deploy button they will see a java script error “Sys.ArgumentException: Cannot Deserialize.”.
• Resource Assignments (Gantt chart and Performance) – If there are a lot of resource assignments and projects and therefore a large volume of data to update, information will not be update immediately even after clicking Run Now with the Bamboo Gantt Chart Timer Job. See the troubleshooting section for the Resource Assignment not showing data online documentation for more information.
• Resource Availability report – If user selects to view the Resource Availability with date range span across 2 years such as 12/1/2012 to 1/15/2013, the capacity for the first year will display as 0 instead of 8 hours for 1 day or 160 hours for 1 month.
• When PM Central tasks are merged with Microsoft Project tasks using Microsoft Project Add-In and with Microsoft Add-In is set using the Auto Schedule option, if the tasks in SharePoint have a Start Date different than the Start Date of the project and tasks in Microsoft Project after merge, the tasks will show up with the wrong Start Date and may result in breaking the parent-child relationship. 
• If you merge tasks between PM Central and Microsoft Project using the Microsoft Project Add-in, and the tasks have the same name with different Work Breakdown Structure, after the merge the tasks will show the wrong parent-child relationship and the wrong work breakdown structure. 
• When using the Request New PMC Project Site workflow, the title is missing in the breadcrumb in the form for Start Workflow. 
• If you export tasks to Microsoft Project using the Bamboo Microsoft Project Add-in and then move a task in Microsoft Project, the task will be incorrectly be displayed as a child task if you export the PM Central Tasks list again using the “Merge” option.
• When exporting the Resource Task Timeline report to Excel, the Gantt bar does not show an accurate time span. 
• In User Profiles Import search results, the contents of the About Me field includes HTML markup.

• If you change an existing selection for the Project Department or Project fields in a report, the Resource field does not update with the choices that match the new Project Department and Project combination. 
• When Microsoft Project synchronizes task updates to a connected PM Central Tasks list, “Constraint Date” values of “NA” in Microsoft Project—which indicates a constraint type of “As Soon as Possible”—may be set to today’s date when synchronized to the PM Central Tasks list. This does not impact the project schedule.
• When browsing a PM Central site in HTTPS, chart images exported from the Reporting Web Part to Microsoft Excel are displayed as a red “X” in the Excel workbook. 
• If a project site has unique permissions and its users do not have access to the portfolio site, data from the Enterprise Resource Pool in the portfolio site is still visible in the project site Contacts list. 
• After upgrading PM Central, the Project Portfolio Dashboard does not display data on the portfolio site’s Schedules tab or in the Portfolio Dashboard List after clicking Refresh for the first time. To resolve this issue, restart the SharePoint 2010 Timer service. See KB.12641 for more information.

Known Issues for In-Place Upgrade:

• When the project site has been created from a saved lite template and the tasks belong to this project do not get edit again, then the Resource Work By Project and Resource Work Project Department tabs under Report Center on the portfolio site will display an error. This issue only occurs when migrating from SP2010 to SP2013. The workaround is to edit and save the tasks of this project site – where the project site was created from a saved lite template.

Limitations for In-Place Upgrade:

• Any customizations made to the sites (master pages, CSS, logos, etc.) will not be retained after running the in-place upgrade to SharePoint 2013.
The upgrade must be run on a new SharePoint 2013 server with content that was upgraded from a SharePoint 2010 server using the database attach and upgrade method.
• Upgrading PM Central on a server that was upgraded from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 (Foundation or Server) on the same hardware will not work.

Bug Fixes:

• When the data source is a List Rollup and sorting for the Gantt View using the ID column of the Calendar list, Web Part shows error “RenderCalendar: Input string was not in a correct format….”. 

Known Issues:

• Calendar Plus does not work with the data source that is created List Rollup Schema using the Bamboo Aggregation Service on the German site.
• The data is not shown clearly when list data contains 4999 items/ 200 items per month.
• Web Part goes to Day view after viewing then closing an item at Today view.

• When the data source is a SharePoint list and sorting for the Gantt View using the ID column of the Calendar list, Web Part shows error “RenderCalendar: Input string was not in a correct format….”.
• If Lookup column with multiple values is used for filtering, the filter results when Calendar Plus is using List Filter Web Part is different than the filter results when Calendar Plus is using Web Part Connection to a list.
• The data of Schedule Status custom column from Project Management Central is not shown in Gantt view.
• The ID column is not support for filtering including filtering in toolpane, filtering in Web Part Connection to list, or from List Filter Web Part.

Limitations:

• When using List Filter Web for filtering, the following columns are not support for filtering and therefore are not showing in the drop-down for selecting the target column: “All day events”, Multiple line of text, Calculated, Attachments, Recurrence, Hyperlink, Workspace, and ID.
• This product can be migrated from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013. However, there are limitations to the migration procedure. Read KB.12896: How to Migrate Bamboo Products from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 for more information.
• If Calendar Plus Web Part is added on a page created a List View (example: allitems.aspx), user will receive the error: “ListRollupSettings :: btnWegPart_Click :: Invalid URL argument.” Work Around: Use the Calendar Plus Web Part on a page that was not generated creating a List View.
• If Calendar Plus Web Part’s data source is a SharePoint List or Library, and a selected List or Library View is applied as the filter, the view’ Item Limits are not honored.
• If Calendar Plus Web Part’s data source is a SharePoint List or Library, only one SharePoint List or Library can be displayed in the Gantt View. Work Around: Utilize the Bamboo product List Rollup Web Part to aggregate multiple lists into a single view then connect Calendar Plus Web Part to the resulting List Rollup.

HW55 Navigators for SharePoint 2013 Release 1.5.74.2013

New Features:

• Allow users to use mega menu (Mega menu is a two-dimensional menu that allows users to display a large sitemap-like menu, expand menus, or link to pages with additional navigation.):

o Drop-down menus are displayed when mouse hovers over the top-level menu bar.

Online Information:

• For information on how to customize the skin, see KB.13015 HOW TO: Customizing the Skin for Bamboo Navigators Using the Custom Style Option
• For information on how to add mega menu, see KB.130017 HOW TO: Add Mega Menu to Bamboo Navigators Menu Web Part

Known Issues:

• None.

Limitations:

• The Navigator menu does not show the menus in sort order if one of the items is blank for “Sort Order” field. This is working as designed.
• For TabStrip menu, the text does not wrap when TabStrip has Size = 50 pixels or when the TabStrip menu’s orientation is in the horizontal position. This is working as designed.
• For Migration: Cannot edit the tool pane if the icon URL’s value is using the absolute path. The workaround is for the end user to manually modify the URL for the items in the list.
• For Migration: Custom style does not take effect when migrating to SharePoint 2013. The workaround is to move the information that defines the custom style from the SP2010 style.css file to the SharePoint 2013 xxx.CustomSkin.css file where xxx = TabStrip, Menu…etc. (Navigators for SP2010 and SP2013 have many differences in defining the class name in the css file as well as the name of the css file. For example: In SP2010, we are using “..TabStripSkinsCustomSkinstyle.css”, but in SP2013 we are using “..TabStripSkinsCustomSkinTabStrip.CustomSkin.css”.).
• For Migration: When using the Navigators Tree Menu, the “Inherit from site theme” option does not take effect if there are more than 32 Navigators Web Part on the same page. This is a limitation of Internet Explorer that imposes a maximum limit of 32 individual stylesheet (The reason is that there is a limit on the number of stylesheets per page for IE8, and IE9. When user adds many Navigator Web Parts into the page, Navigators will register many stylesheets into that page. And if the number of the stylesheets is 32 then the CSS for Navigator Web Parts does not take effect.).
