April 10th 2018 marked the end of mainline support for Project and Project Server 2013. How does this affect you?
After this date, Microsoft will only be applying fixes to these products that are security related. There will no longer be any new or developing features for Project, Project Server and Sharepoint 2013. As of April 11th, Microsoft will update the minimum support build for these products. That means you will need to patch to the below minimum supported builds, if you have not done so already, to receive support from Microsoft. If you contact support and have not done so; you will be asked to do so before any support is rendered for these products.
|Important Dates:||Support End Date|
|Service Pack 1||4/10/2018|
|April 2017 Public Update – March 2018 Public Update||4/10/2019|
|April 2018 Public Update – all future Public Updates||4/11/2023|
If you are currently using these products; hopefully, you are considering upgrading to Project Server 2016, 2019 or Project Online to avoid any service interruption or interfacing issues.
