Error in PWA when editing: RRS feed

  • Question

  • This error occurs very often when people attempt to make edits (and it happens no matter the user permissions):

    "This edit isn't supported in Project Web App. To make this change, open your project in Project Professional."

    It doesn't happen all the time but enough to cause us grief.  Then when the project is opened in Project Professional the edits are possible.  It's very annoying, any ideas on how to make it stop?

    Thank you very much!

  • DZENN --

    The dialog you are seeing is not an error dialog.  Rather, it is a warning dialog.  You will see this warning when you attempt to edit a task in PWA when the task uses features specified in Microsoft Project that are not supported for PWA editing.  These features include the following:

    • The task uses has a dependency other than Finish-to-Start, or has a Finish-to-Start dependency with Lag time or Lead time.
    • The task has a constraint other than As Soon as Possible.
    • The task has a Deadline date.
    • The task has a Task Calendar applied.

    If a user sees this warning dialog, they must edit the task in Microsoft Project.  Hope this helps.
