Publish from PWA does not update calculated custom fields RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a situation where I have a Custom calculated project field called EAC.
    EAC =[Cost] where cost is the standard cost field from Project.

    The reason for creating the custom field is purely to adopt the clients terminology - and there are a number of fields in this category but I am using EAC for simplicity.

    If you edit the schedule in the browser and assign more resources to tasks and publish the project but make no changes to any Project Level custom fields - the OOTB field "Cost" updates as expected but EAC remains at the old value.

    If you publish from Project Client EAC populates correctly.
    If you update any other project level field and then click save - EAC also populates correctly.

    However in the scenario where a PM publishes schedule changes from PWA and does not change any project custom fields, calculated project custom fields do not update. This also applies to RAG calcs where the status is based on task based values.

    Is anyone else experiencing this issue?
