When a user is deleted from the database, do their user layouts become global in the Client in R15.2?

Once a user is deleted, their specific layouts and preferences are deleted as well. There was a bug in 7.0 that when a user is deleted the layouts are pushed to global, but that is no longer the case.

Can you run batch reports in P6 Professional 15.2?

Yes, you can. The Job Service Server component must be installed to use the Job Services feature. Also, using the Job Services feature requires the appropriate level of security. If a job does not run as scheduled, check with your system administrator. For Batch Reports jobs, click the Job Options tab and add each project/EPS node for which you want to run the batch report. Project batch reports will only run for the project to which they are assigned. To remove a project/EPS node from the job, select it and click Remove. In the Batch Report field, click to select the batch report you want the job service to run. To specify where to send the output of the batch report, click Send Report To.

Your linear spread for a resource assignment is only showing for a part of the activity duration.

If you are seeing your spread for only a portion of the activity, you may need to check the assignment. Check to see that you did select "linear" for the curve. If you have to select it again, do so, then schedule with the most recent data date and then summarize again. After summarizing, check the data in the resource assignments section. There are some cases where you will also need to check the resource assignment start/finish dates in the event that you added the activity, progressed it, added resources, and scheduled etc.
