When syncing Project 2013 to Sharepoint 2010, latest task update is duplicated RRS feed

  • Question

  • When using Project 2013 with a Sharepoint 2010 task list, the latest "update" is duplicated every time the Project file is synced.  This makes the update list very difficult to read as it ends up being mostly duplicates.  Is there any way to configure the two so that this behavior does not occur?

  • Hi Louis,

    According to your description, my understanding is that there were duplicated tasks when syncing Project to SharePoint task list.

    Did you save a local copy of the .mpp file of the plan for editing?

    We will always want to use "Open with Project" when we want to use Project to update either the SharePoint Tasks list or the .mpp file. These two entities are now linked, and the SharePoint task list is considered the "master". Opening the .mpp file from any location other than Site Assets will damage the link and cause issues, such as duplicate tasks on the SharePoint Tasks list.

    Please make sure that you do not open the .mpp file from any other location other that Site Assets.

    Best regards.
