Clarity PPM On Premise

Issue/Introduction

When changing the 'Week starts on' setting in Microsoft Project (MSP) (under File - Options - Schedule) and saving this project back to Clarity, the next time the project is exported to MSP, the setting is reverted back to the previous setting. For example:

  1. 'Week starts on' is initially set to start on Monday
  2. Change it to Sunday
  3. Save the project to Clarity
  4. Export the project back to MSP

Results: The 'Week starts on' is reset back to Monday. 

Environment

Release : All

Component : Clarity Microsoft Project Interface (MSP)

Resolution

The 'Week starts on' setting in MSP is pulled from the 'First Day of Work Week' setting in Clarity (under Administration - Project Management - Settings) so any changes made to this setting in MSP will not save back to Clarity. If the 'First Day of Work Week' setting is set to Monday in Clarity, the 'Week starts on' setting in MSP will always default to Monday when exporting a project to MSP.
