We have a master project that contains several sub-project. When the projects were loaded, they were loaded as “Read-Only” so that the Program Manager could simply see the updates.
However, when you open the Master Project, the sub-project updates are not there. How do we get the Master Project to pull the updated information from the sub-projects?
Thanks.04/21/2017 at 12:17 pm #409838
Norman, can you elaborate your statement about loading projects “read-Only”? Does that mean that they are unlinked when they are loaded into the master? If that’s the case then absolutely, they will not be updated. Otherwise I could use some additional details. Thanks…04/24/2017 at 9:17 am #409844
I go to Project/Sub-Project then find my project and select the mode “Read-Only” and leave the “Lin to Project” checked.
This prevents the Program Manager from checking out all the sub-projects while they review the overall schedule.
However, as mentioned, the project update are not coming in.

Interesting Norman. I’ve never used that read only feature before, but I did a quick test (created a master with one sub – read only, saved the master, opened / changed / and closed the sub, opened the master again…and the changes came through). So I’m kind of lost with what you have you test. Can you try a simple test similar to what I just did and see if you get the same results?05/02/2017 at 3:35 pm #409907
Thank you Larry for the feedback.
It appears that if the sub-project is “minimized” that it does not update. If you expand the sub-project, it looks for it and updates it just fine. This is what I have told the Program Manger to do.
Thank you again for your feedback.07/06/2017 at 5:44 am #410455
I have the same issue, with the subprojects not updating % work complete, remaining work etc until opening the subproject in the master project. Do you know if this is the only way to ‘refresh’ the %completes or if project has a mechanism to do it automatically?
