Any Known Issues with Saving MSP 2016 File to Box? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi -

    I'm working with a student team who saved a file to Box in order to share it with one another. 

    When they retrieved it, the settings were incorrect (e.g., it was now scheduling from the Project Finish date) and the tasks were scrambled from an indent/outdent/organizational perspective. It was a mess and they've lost a lot of work.

    Does anyone know of issues with saving an MSP 2016 (standard) file to Box?

    Any insight is appreciated.


    P.S. I checked their file for some sort of strange applied sort, but it was in ID order.

  • Have you tried saving other project schedules and seeing if they are corrupted?

    Look at the file size and attributes and update date before saving to box.  Are they the same after it has been saved?

  • Thanks for the speedy reply, Michael.

    The file size on Box is very small. About 600KB. That's roughly the size of the same file saved about two days ago.

    I don't have access to Box, and it's not my impression that many teams use it. But you have a good idea to post another schedule out there and see if we have the same results.

    Appreciate it!
