Issue:
When trying to save a project back from MSP (Microsoft Project) to PPM, receive a Project Save Failed error.

Prior to the project save failed message, receive message <task> in <Project Name> cannot be completed in the time allocated because there is a scheduling conflict between this task and another one to which it is linked".
Cause:
One reason this appears to happen is if a Summary task on the project is manually scheduled and any of its subtasks' Start / Finish dates fall outside the range of the summary task.
Resolution:
Change any tasks, including summary tasks, that are Manually Scheduled to Auto Scheduled.
