Potential Bug on Task Formatting for project created with project template using EPT RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    The formatting (cell highlighting, font, etc) applied to the project template gets messed up on the new project created by EPT. 

    The simulation steps as follows:

    1. Create 2 tasks to a project plan and format each task to a different background color.
    2. Insert another task in between the 2 tasks and format it to another background color.
    3. Save project as template
    4. Create a new EPT using this project template
    5. Create a new project using this EPT
    6. Open the newly created project with MS Project Professional. You will notice that the background color for task 2 & 3 gets switched.

    I suspect it got to do with the UniqueID field column that somehow got reference incorrectly when new project is created. Another finding is when the project is being created using Project Professional, it works correctly. I just want to verify that this is a bug and get advice on how to raise a potential bug to Microsoft.
