Error Syncing MS Project Professional to Sharpoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • I created a new Project Site in our SharePoint 2013 environment. I tried, then, to sync and existing (and new) MS Project Professional 2013 (.mpp) file to a Task List in that site.  I tried to sync to and existing list and to a list created in Project. I followed the process (File -> Save As -> Sync to SharePoint).  All attempts have been unsuccessful and resulted in the below error.

    We can't write task "ABC" to the SharePoint site.

    This is either because the tasks list is in read-only mode, or because this task has a column that requires unique value.

    I have checked my permissions, created a new sites, and checked all the columns.  Nothing is as the error denotes.

    Any help getting rid of this error and syncing the project to a task list would be greatly appreciated.

  • Akilah,

    Have you made sure that there is no columns requiring Unique information? (check under List Settings >> Columns)

    Also, do you have any workflows running on the SharePoint Site?

  • Yes I have checked and there are no columns requiring unique information.

    We are not using any workflows.
