    ·         (February 17, 2016) Microsoft has released KB3114739 which is an update for Microsoft Project 2013. This update contains the following improvements and fixes.
    Fixes the following issues:
    When you enable the Level only within available slack option to level a resource, this option should allow assignments to be scheduled later as long as the overall project isn't finished. However, you receive a message stating that leveling can't resolve over allocated resources. When you select the Skip All button, leveling pushes tasks past the project finish date.
    When you open a project from a server, it may take a long time if the project doesn't exist in the user's local active cache.
    When you apply a grouping to a task type view, baseline finish type fields may not show the expected value on the grouping summary row tasks. Instead of showing the latest finish date as expected, the field shows Not Available if at least one of the grouped tasks doesn't have a baseline finish date.
    Consider the following scenario:
    A user enters time phased actual work on an assignment and submits the work for approval.
    The status manager approves the update.
    The user changes the assignment start date and then submits the change.
    The status manager approves the update.
    In this scenario, the time phased actual work may move to another date.
    Assume that you have a series of related tasks (they have dependencies between them) and you now make one of the tasks inactive. In this situation, the successor tasks to the inactive task may be scheduled later than expected.
    Consider the following scenario:
    You have a 1d task that has an assigned resource and the assignment has 8h of work on a single day.
    You set the assignment contour to front-loaded. At this point, you now have two daily work segments of 6.67h and 1.33h.
    You save the project as an XML file and reopen it.
    In this situation, the work contour is lost and the opened assignment has a single work segment of 8h. In a related scenario, if you open an XML file, Project 2013 may crash and becomes unresponsive. This issue occurs after you install December 8, 2015, update for Project 2013 (KB3114366).
