Issues using Project 2013 with SharePoint 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm a SharePoint Admin and a few users have come to me with issues related to checking in Project 2013 files. The scenario they describe is this:

    • Project 2013 file is saved and checked in to a document library
    • User opens the file and selects edit from the dialog menu.
    • The time the document is open varies, from a few minutes to over an hour
    • User is logged in as
    • They can close the file, select check in, and update the file in the library
    • Once they try to open the file again, they are given a message saying that the file is checked out to server\user and asks whether they want to view a read only copy
    • Saving is disabled because it is read only
    • If the user tries to close the file, they are given the option to check in the file
    • Sometimes the file will check in and other times it will not.

    Has anyone run into issues like this before?

  • Hi CjMOrr85,

    Second time when you open the project file, which option do you select. "Read-only" of "Check-out to Edit". If you are using "Check-out" option, you should not have any issues.

    Happy troubleshooting....
