Microsoft project 2016/365 assignment durations not importing correctly as 100% RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi for our product we create an XML file to import into MS Project. It works up until 2013 but 2016/365 version doesn't import the resource unit allocations correctly. I.e. it says 100% but really its 400% i.e. not 8 hours per day but instead 32 hours per day. The fix in project is just to increase the duration. But need to fix this so it imports correctly.


    1. Our export does not create **TimephasedData** for the resource assignments. Is this data now required by the new version of MS Project?
    2. Is there a schema for the 2016/365 Project? I can only find up to 2010.
    3. Does anyone know what changed in the XML import that now causes the issue?

  • Make sure Project 2016 is fully updated.

    If import still does not work try saving a simple Project as xml and study the saved file. Delete rows you don't need, a few at a time then test importing again.

  • My conclusion at the moment it to add in the TimephasedData as it seems to resolve the issue.
