Projects Opening in Read Only Mode with Multiple Yellow Bars RRS feed

  • Question

  • My team has a problem with projects opening in read only mode that used to open in edit mode.

    In our current experience, when opening a project either from the desktop app or Project Online, we see something like this:

    Read Only Mode Issue

    Interestingly, clicking "Check Out" sometimes checks out the project and sometimes it doesn't. The more reliable path is for the user to go to File --> Info and then click "Check Out" there. That'll put the project into edit mode but won't remove the yellow "READ ONLY/Check Out" bars. Those must be removed by clicking the "x" at the right hand side.

    Does anyone know what causes this or how to fix the problem?
