Project Server 2013 - Out of Office Sync - Only two months in future?!? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello there guys,

    after Long Long search for the problem, I've found out that our Project Server 2013 only syncs the out of Office time from our Exchange Calendar for the next two months.

    But for our Project planning we Need of course a more longtime synchronization, at least 6 or better 12 months.
    I didnt find any Option where I could set it to sync more then 2 months of the out of Office times in the calendars.

    I've spent already so much time on this Problem... When I set the Project Server time 2 weeks(!) in the future, then the sync will also sync two more weeks in the future, but not more.

    The timesheet periods are also set for the next 12 month.

    Does anybody have an Information/help regarding this Problem for me?
    How can I set the Out of Office sync to synchronize more then just 2 months?

  • Anybody used this Feature before and can tell me if it works to retrieve the out of Office time for more than 2 month?

    Thank you!

  • I've searched the Verbose Log and found the following:

    12/17/2013 14:38:16.32 Microsoft.Office.Project.Server (0x0928) 0x1A6C Project Server Exchange Sync aaubf Verbose PWA:https://servername/PWA, ServiceApp:Project Server-Dienstanwendung, User:PROJECTSERVER\system, PSI: Calling service.GetUserAvailability() for user:2c3909bc-d6fb-e211-b239-000c296be823 for period:12/17/2013 00:00:00-02/17/2014 00:00:00, LogLevelManager Warning-ulsID:0x00014045 has no entities explicitly specified. 3a2f619c-f4a0-f018-b62b-b2d1299a489f 

    So the Project Server is only asking for two months of User Availability on the Exchange. Where can I Change this Setting so that the Project Server syncs more then 2 months?

    Otherwise this functionality is quite useless in my view as we are planning our Projects longer then only 2 months...

    Thank you!

  • Hi Lukas,

    I've just run into the exact same problem.  Did you ever manage to get a workaround for this?
