Issue/Introduction

When using the bidirectional integration and clicking on the Update Actuals button on the CA PPM Integration ribbon in Microsoft Project, the following popup should appear: 

When clicking on Yes, it should be followed by another popup: 

However, when using the integration with Project365, the second popup does not come up. Nothing happens, so it's unclear to the users if something is happening in the background. 

If the One- Way integration method is not going to be used, is there a way to disable the Update Actuals button to help with any confusion that the users may have with this behavior?

Environment

Release : 15.7.1 and higher

Component : CA PPM MICROSOFT PROJECT (MSP)

Resolution

The Visual Basic code on the importActuals macro that is used by the Update Actuals button can be updated. This code is found at the bottom of the Niku_General module (under View - Macros - Visual Basic). It can be modified to the following:

Sub importActuals()

Exit_ImportActuals:
    Exit Sub

End Sub
