Different results in assignmentbyday when publishing via client vs csom RRS feed

  • Question

  • Publishing via CSOM (draft.Publish) results in different assignmentbyday values for certain tasks vs publishing from the client or PWA.

    Following are details about the problematic assignment:

    Task start: Jan 1.
    Assignment start: Apr 1
    Assignment pct comp: 0%

    Viewing the assignment in MS Project shows that there is no assigned work until June 1. Perhaps a PM manually overwrote the assigned work for that time frame?

    Regardless, when the project is published from MS Project, the assignmentbyday table shows that the assigned work starts in June, which correctly reflects the data in MS project. When the project is published via CSOM (draft.publish), the project work starts on Apr 1. 

    Why do the two publish mechanisms result in different values in the assignmentsbyday table? Is there any way to fix this issue?
