Work contour is changing to 'Contoured' on changing the Project Owner RRS feed

  • Question

  • When a Plan is created and resources are assigned in MS Project Pro, the default work contour is Flat. But, if I change the project owner in project server, work contour values for the assigned resources are changing to Contoured. I am not sure if this is expected behavior. If it indeed is expected, can anyone explain the logic behind it?

    I have checked in both the 2010 and 2013 versions it is showing the same behavior.

    Thanks for the anticipated support.

  • I created a project in 2013. Assigned a resource to a task. Checked the contour. Saved, published, Closed.

    I then changed the owner in the PDP. Saved and closed.

    Opened it in Pro and the contour was still flat.

    Can you post more detailed steps to reproduce your issue?

  • I am experiencing something similar but it is when I change the end date of the assignment.  I move it to flat and then change the end date, it flips back to contoured.  Is this supposed to occur?
