The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
Log into Agile Web Client
Go to a Project and launch in Gantt Chart
Edit the schedule date of any task
Click save.
Gantt Chart failed to show the update successful in left bottom corner of the window (Not showing successfully saved message.)
Once data is saved it is not allowing to change other task data again in same window.
If you try to close the window, you will get new popup window

Update Failed. Do you still want to exit?
