Project Server 2013: February 2013 Cumulative Update delivered with March 2013 Public Update

Just posted over on the Project Support blog about the March 2013 Public update for Project Server 2013, which includes the fixes that were due to be delivered in the February 2013 Cumulative Update.  The link is here – http://blogs.technet.com/b/projectsupport/archive/2013/03/18/project-server-2013-march-public-updates.aspx and I have also updated the more general CU release blog.   Please note that this release of the March Public Update becomes the new baseline for CU installation – meaning that any future CU installations will require the March Public Update to be installed.

Project Server 2013: Managing Resources in Project Professional 2013

A couple of cross blog references here on resource management topics – and both affect Project Online as well as the on premise installations.  Firstly an issue where you cannot open more than a certain number of resources from your Resource Center in Project Professional 2013 – blogged over on the Project Support blog at http://blogs.technet.com/b/projectsupport/archive/2013/03/11/project-server-2013-why-can-t-i-open-all-my-resources-from-the-resource-center.aspx .  The numbers aren’t exact – but will be around 120 for IE9, then 520 or so for IE10, Chrome and Firefox. The second one is from our very good friend Gary Chefetz over at MSProjectExperts and unlocks the key to the Windows Logon Account field if you wish to add resources via Project Professional 2013 – http://www.projectserverhelp.com/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=205 .   Also note Gary’s comment on needing to select at least one resource from the existing resource center to open Pro up.
