IE 9 is out – what about your PWA?


Internet Explorer 9 has finally reached RTM status and is available for everybody. This means that a lot of Project Server users will upgrade, and therefor need to now what works perfectly and what is waiting for a “fix”. The brief intro is that IE9 has been tested up agains Project Server 2007 and 2010. However, there are curtain issues you should be aware of. The following is a blog note from Christophe Fiessinger, Senior Technical Product Manager (Project 2010):

———-
There is a small known issue with editing some of the grids in Project Server 2007 and Project Server 2010. When the entire contents of an editable cell are deleted, that cell becomes un-editable until the page is refreshed. Therefore, when modifying the content of a cell, you must ensure that all the content of the cell is not completely removed. To completely replace the contents of the cell, select the whole text and replace that with the new string. This issue affects the grid on the following pages:

Microsoft Office Project Server 2007 Microsoft Project Server 2010
  • My Tasks
  • My Timesheet
  • Proposals and Activities > New Activity
  • Status Report Request > Sections group
  • Server Settings > Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Tables > Edit Lookup Table > Lookup table group
  • Server Settings > Line Classifications
  • Server Settings > Time Reporting Periods à Create Periods
  • Server Settings > Cube Configuration > Calculated Measures group
  • Server Settings > Administrative Time
  • Status Report Request > Sections group
  • Server Settings > Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Tables à Edit Lookup Table > Lookup table group
  • Server Settings > Line Classifications
  • Server Settings > Time Reporting Periods > Create Periods
  • Server Settings > OLAP Database Management > Configuration > Calculated Measures group
  • Server Settings > Administrative Time

 There are also known issues with changing a project owner in the project information page, and adding or removing project fields in project detail pages. Microsoft is working across IE and Microsoft Project teams to fix these issues soon. An update for this will be available later.
