Microsoft Project Integration

recently I had some problams uploading projects from Microsoft Project to PPM.
Some of the project I’ve uploaded got locked (I'm not abele to edit any data in the work plans anymore).
I think this problem is related to copying tasks from existing project work plans.
IS anybody familiar with any thing like that?

Re: Microsoft Project Integration

Usually when you are not able to edit a plan in PPM this is caused be the project integration mode. What is set in the project settings in the ppm workplan in the category MSP integration?

Re: Microsoft Project Integration

I have the project integration mode set to "Control is shared" and I can't see what other parameters would affect the integration so strongly.
I downloaded several projects before with sufficient success, I don't know what went wrong.
thanking you in advance

Re: Microsoft Project Integration

Shared control means you will not be able to make changes to the workplan in PPM except for task status and task actuals. This means: all the planning is done in MSP and only actuals are captured in PPM.
