•    HW05 Alert Plus version 4.0.84
 
Resolved Bugs:
  
•    Timesheet Period Status column was not updated when timesheets were Auto-approved.
•    Timesheets were not saved when “Collapse all the Project  Name groups default” option in the Timesheet Entry Web Part was enabled.
•    If one item in the timesheet tasks list did not have a due date, some items in the list with due dates may not have been displayed in the Timesheet Entry Web Part.   NOTE:  By design, tasks without due dates are not displayed.
•    When due date has not value on one or more tasks, Time Entry Web Part does not list all assigned tasks.
  
New Known Issues:
 
•    When PM Central 4.3 (SP2010) is integrated with TTM 2.5, reports that get content from TTM and are rendered in PM Central display an error message.
•    Java script error is displayed on the Timesheet Entry page when accessed with IE 10 on UAG.   This error is caused the IE configuration.   See the link below for information on how to resolve:    http://www.itsupportforum.net/topic/internet-explorer-automation-server-cant-create-object/
•    If using TTM in https/UAG environment with IE 10,  Bamboo recommends using Compatibility  mode.
•    When using IE11, once a report is generated and filtered you cannot filter a report a new set of criteria. Workaround is to reload the page.
•    After upgrading for TTM 1.7 to 2.0 the error message “Access Denied: You must have Full Control or be a member of  a Report Center group to view the reports.” is displayed when the logged in user belongs to an AD group that was granted permission to the Report Center via the  Reporting.aspx  and the Web Part’s Permissions Settings. To resolve the issue access the Report Center Web Part’s configuration tool pane, then click Save > Apply > OK.
 
New Limitations:

•    The Resource ID cannot get value if Timesheet User is a SharePoint group or AD group.
•    User Interface – If the header column width is narrow down, the text of the grid footer will be cut off. This is the limitation of the Telerik radgrid control.
•    Grouping is case-insensitive in Report Center reports. For example, in a report that groups timesheet data project, data from two different projects with names “Project A” and “project a” will be grouped together.
•    When adding views to the Report Views field for an item in the Report Configuration list, view names are case-sensitive. For example, “Approved Timesheets” and “approved timesheets” are not the same. The text must match the view name configured in the Timesheets list exactly.
