    Hi,

    While there is no configuration support to hide the icon, it can be done with a small bit if CSS added to the Project Center page (in a content editor web part):

    <style type="text/css">
    #Ribbon\.ContextualTabs\.ProjectCenter\.Home\.Apps {
     display: none;
    }
    </style>

    Otherwise all users of Bulk Edit require full reporting database access (ie all projects), if a user does not have access to modify a particular project they will not be able to make changes, unfortunately however that is not a supported scenario and will result in errors.

    Hi,
    If using on-prem 2019 then please check this link in the support page:

    Common issue: SP2019 – Items in document libraries are downloaded with mime-type application/octet-stream rather than the accurate one

    Failing that if it’s a 404 then it might just need some time for the app to fully load (although the request url in the info you provided is incorrect it should be .aspx on the end!), check your App Management Service configuration in the SharePoint farm and confirm that you can install other apps.

    HTH,

    Hi, were you able to download the file from the Bulk Edit page here under Apps?

    https://nearbaseline.com/wp-content/uploads/dlm_uploads/2016/11/BulkEditApp-1.2.0.23.zip

    Hi,

    Yes Bulk Edit is still supported on a best effort basis, the last update (1.2.0.23) was released in Oct 2017.

    I use it myself regularly with many customers, however I do see issues relating mostly to custom field non-standard names and language issues. I fix these when I can, feel free to report issues here including details from the F12 debug console and I will do what I can.

    Hi,
    If you’re using 2019 then please check out the Known Issue “Project Server 2019 display issue”:

    Hello,
    2019 is supported, however I have found that there is an issue that causes BulkEdit to not load correctly.

    It is caused by a missing feature installed on the server, see the following article for a workaround:

    Common issue: SP2019 – Items in document libraries are downloaded with mime-type application/octet-stream rather than the accurate one

    Workaround:

    The issue can be resolved by installing the IIS 6 Metabase Compatibility windows feature either through Server Manager UI or using the following PowerShell commands:

    import-module servermanager
    install-windowsfeature web-metabase

    Hi,

    No unfortunately only one column filter is possible in Bulk Edit. I’ll add this feature request to my list as it could be useful in a future update.

    Hi,

    This looks like a bug, Bulk Edit stores your preferences in the browser “local storage” it also caches those lookup values.

    A quick workaround to this is to remove the field in your view from the ‘Select Fields’ button, then re-add that field back in to refresh the cache.

    I just tested this myself and it corrected the issue, let me know if it works for you.

    Regards,
    Martin

    Hi,

    Make sure you select the correct ‘Project Owner’ field as there are two, the field that can be edited (via a drop down selection list of possible owners) is “Project Owner Name” and not “Project Owner Id”.

    Hello Dilip,

    Is it only the description field that causes this error? Is that the out-of-the-box description field? Can you modify other custom fields for that project and others?

    There was a similar problem with the ootb description field in old versions of the Project server API that caused similar issues, however as long as you have a recently patched server (or project online) then that issue should not be the cause.

    If it is a custom field and the issue only effects one project, then try editing the project normally, do you see any errors. For example if workflow is configured and fields are required in the current stage then it will be the same as having the field mandatory.

    Regards,
    Martin

    Hello,

    I have seen this before when there is a custom field configured to be required in server settings. If the field has no value then any other updates to other project fields will fail in Bulk Edit.

    Check your Enterprise Custom Field configuration in Server Settings and if any fields are marked as required make sure to include that field in the Bulk Edit view set that field value first for all projects. Alternately disable the required field – personally I use workflow controlled always in place of required due to this and other issues caused by required fields.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately no, the copy paste functionality is from between projects in the app itself and pasting from Excel would have unexpected results.
