• When the milestone’s predecessor due date is ended at 5:00 PM and working hours are from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Task Master recalculates the milestone to the next day with the time of 8:00 AM.

Limitations:

• If users 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 “]”.
• When using the Microsoft Project Add-In, if users modify the Outline level field in Microsoft Project without adjusting the WBS field, they will see an error during the merge between PM Central Tasks and Microsoft Project tasks, e.g. Outline Level field is 1 and WBS is 1.1.
• Addin – New/Merge/Append to Microsoft Project – If the Cost and Acual 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.
• If creating a Portfolio site that is the child of a Team site, the Bamboo Project Central Content Types feature must be activated before create them.

• Clicking “Add new item” in the Discussion tab does not display the New Item pop-up form.
• 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.

Known Issues:

• If the parent task has a predecessor and the parent task is a milestone, the Start Date of the parent task and the child task change based on the predecessor’s Due Date. For example, the working hours is set from 8:00 – 5:00 PM and the Start Date for the parent task and child task is 09/18/2013 8:00 AM. If the predecessor’s Due Date is 09/18/2013 5:00PM, the Start Date and Due Date for the parent and child task are now changed to 09/19/2013 8:00 AM.
• 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.

Users must select Remove All and Install twice instead of the Upgrade/Repair Existing and Install New for this timer job to change name and change the schedule.
• Resource Allocation and Capacity Planning at the portfolio site might result in request timed out in cases where there are 500 items or more in the Tasks list per project, with 40 or more project sites, assigned to 20 or more resources, and the time period spans over 2 years.
• 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 a resource has tasks that span multiple years (e.g., 2009-2012), data cannot be displayed in the Resource Assignment Gantt chart on the portfolio site Resources page.
• 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.
• Project Schedule and Scheduled Tasks baselines cannot be created if the project or tasks span three years or more.
• 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.
• The “Quick Launch” feature is not visible when upgrading sites that were created in PM Central R1.8. Sites upgraded from R2.0 or higher correctly display the Quick Launch menu.

• 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.
