In Project Server 2013, I tried to open a project schedule via Microsoft Project 2013, and when I tried to add a new column to the default view, I got the following error:

Cause :

This problem usually occurs If you tried to change the enterprise global template that is a collection of default settings and used for all projects across the organization and can’t be changed during the current session.Meanwhile, if you tried to customize the enterprise global template by adding new columns with this method, you will lose all changes when you are going to open the project schedule at the next time!
