2465660 - Error “Initialization Failed" When Checking the Availability of an Employee


When you try to check the availability of an Employee system throws the exception Initialization Failed.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Project Management workcenter
  2. Select Resource Search
  3. Search for an Employee and select Show Availability


The reason for the error is in availability calendar that the Name should be on 1st column (that's how it is designed), but you have changed it to any other positions using personalization or click and move.


Re-arrange the columns in the Availability Calendar in such a way that the column Name is always the 1st.
