Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR

The handling of summary data is inconsistent between the P6 Professional Client and the P6 Web application. 

Examples include:

In the P6 Web Standard Views, unchecking the enable summarization box does not prompt for the deletion of summary data and does not change the contains summary data flag.

Also, the "contains summary data" flag is editable and should not be. The field should only be changed when summarizing data, or deleting summary data, not manually changed by a user in the web.

These problems do not exist in the Client application, or in the P6 Web application's classic view.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

For the summary data deletion to complete and for the web and client to be consistent in the handling of summary data.
