Project Server 2013: Empty issues, questions and documents list in the PWA task details pane RRS feed

  • Question

  • Project Server 2012, SharePoint 2013

    I have a task with a few attached issues, risks and documents. And I see links to that in the PWA project plan (as icons).

    But when resource open his PWA task pane attachment lists (issues, risks and documents) are empty.

    Why? How to add documents in that lists?

  • I face with the same problem as the author.

    'Task is linked with doc/issue/risk. go to update task, there is attachment section with 3 tables (doc/issue/risk) but the linked doc/issue/risk are not listed in the table'

    I tried adding the attachment, it redirect me to single issue/risk/document link. I added the issue, linked it again to the task, but still nothing happen when I go to update task.

    any explanation to this situation?

    Thank you in advance & Regards,

  • Folks, there is no such thing as Project Server 2012. Adding Me-too posts to a bad question doesn't get you closer to an answer. Please state which version you are using? 2010/2013?

  • Hi Gary,

    sorry I didnt notice that he wrote 2012.

    Mine is project server 2013 and sharepoint 2013.

    I tried in project server 2010 and it works.

  • So, I assume that this is an onsite installation, what patch level is your system? Have you customized any of these lists or libraries or are you using OOB?

  • Hi,

    I have a solution that might work for you, please follow steps below:

    1) Go to your project schedule, make a small modification to any task on schedule and 'Publish' the project.

    2) While your project is being published and saved, open another window 

    Server Settings -> Manage Queue Jobs

    3) Here you can view the progress of your current Project Publishing update, check if all goes smooth and your project is published successfully without indicating any errors of issues like :
    Reporting transfer WSS links failed ( to view any error look at the last column of table on Manage Queue Job page)

    4) Also in your Project window see if the project is published and not saved as Draft.

    Basically this will give you a fair idea of your project being published or not, if not that there is some problem with your Lists ( Risks, Issues and Documents).
