    2. 2. Agenda<br />2<br />Microsoft Confidential<br />
    3. 3. Today’s Webcast<br />Microsoft Confidential<br />3<br />Introductions<br />Microsoft® Project and Project Server 2010 SP1<br />June Cumulative Update <br />Microsoft® Project 2010 fixes<br />Microsoft® Project Server 2010 fixes<br />Microsoft® Office Project 2007 fixes<br />Microsoft® Office Project Server 2007 fixes<br />Cumulative update deployment and links<br />Past webcasts<br />
    4. 4. Microsoft® Project and Project Server 2010 SP1 <br />Microsoft Confidential<br />4<br />
    5. 5. SP1 – What’s New?<br />Multi-Browser Support for time entry in Project Web App<br />With SP1, Project Web App pages needed by team members to submit task status and timesheets are supported on Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. <br />Enhancements to sync’ing Project tasks to a SharePoint task list<br />SharePoint task list sync now also supports auto scheduled tasks in addition to manually scheduled tasks <br />Time-phased support for manually scheduled tasks<br />You can now edit time-phased data for manually scheduled tasks in Project and Project Server. <br />Improvements to project scheduling in Project Web App<br />You can now edit project plans that contain fixed work and effort driven tasks in Project Web App.<br />Approval Rules now support ‘Auto Publish’ on approval <br />Microsoft Confidential<br />5<br />
    6. 6. Multi Browse Support<br />Microsoft Confidential<br />6<br />This multi browser support is targeted at Team Members, so supports the Home Page, Task and Timesheet Entry and Issues/Risks (some limitations on Issues/Risks)<br />Firefox, Chrome (PC and MacOS) and Safari (not PC Safari)<br />Pages that are not supported will give a message or pop-up stating that the page or web part requires at least Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0<br />Comes with the Server SP1 <br />Or just June CU<br />Demonstration!<br />
    7. 7. Enhancements to sync’ing Project tasks to a SharePoint task list <br />Microsoft Confidential<br />7<br />At release only manually scheduled tasks could be sync’d – and the sync option would offer to change tasks to manually scheduled<br />We now sync auto scheduled tasks!<br />A few other fixes and performance improvements for this feature in SP1 too.<br />Still no scheduling on the SharePoint list if you change any of the dates – but these can be sync’d back to Project Professional 2010 SP1 – where they will be re-scheduled then they could be sync’d back<br />Office 365 is a great place to sync your projects to!<br /><br />Confirmed that this works with just the Project 2010 June CU too<br />
    8. 8. Time-phased support for manually scheduled tasks<br />Microsoft Confidential<br />8<br />This new feature comes with both the Server and the Client<br />On the server side a team member can now report time-phased data through My Tasks or Timesheet<br />On the client side time-phased entries (contour) can be edited in the Task Usage view<br />Best to have both client and server at SP1, but nothing breaks if you only have one or the other at SP1 – you just can’t use the feature<br />Might want to reconsider your setting of “Manually scheduled tasks can be published to team members”<br />If you are still in Backwards Compatibility Mode (BCM) then you won’t have manually scheduled tasks anyway<br />Confirmed that this works just with the Project Client and Server 2010 June CU too <br />
    9. 9. Improvements to Project Scheduling in Project Web App<br />Microsoft Confidential<br />9<br />At release there was a limitation on editing plans within Project Web App that had either fixed work or effort driven tasks<br />SP1 removes that limitation!<br />This is just a server side change – the client version you are running will make no difference<br />Comes with SP1 and/or the June CU<br />
    10. 10. Auto Publish<br />Microsoft Confidential<br />10<br />A new check box within the Approval Centre, Manage Rules section<br />Now have your updates published without the need for a hand coded server side event! <br />

    12. 12. SP1 and the June Cumulative Updates for 2010<br />Microsoft Confidential<br />12<br />The June CU is based on, and contains SP1<br />If you install the June CU, you will get ‘most’ of SP1<br />There may be some files that are included in SP1 that are not updated in the June CU – but nothing that would break anything (some localization files)<br />If you install SP1 you will get all that was in the April CU – but will NOT get any post April Critical on Demand (CoD) fixes.<br />Better to install SP1 AND the June CU – limits downtime and gets you bang up to date with new features and good fixes<br />See the Office Sustained Engineering blog post on this topic<br /><br />
    13. 13. SP1 and June CU Installation<br />Microsoft Confidential<br />13<br />If you are loading both at once then just need to run the configuration wizard once (on all servers) at the end of the installation – or you can run between the installation of SP1 and June CU – which can be applied in either order<br />Depending when you run the configuration wizard you may see different entries in your Versions tables in the various databases – Add/Remove programs will confirm which ‘bits’ you have loaded<br />There is an update to the June CU in the works – so if you have already downloaded might be a good idea to get it again in a couple of weeks<br />If you will just install one of these updates – then make it the June CU – especially if you have any post April CU CoD fixes<br />
