  • Hi ItsMeSri,

    Yes, The "Open with Project" ribbon is only available in Tasks Lists.

    Refer to the List Tab section->20. open schedule:

    The command is available for Tasks Lists only.  Exports the tasks to Project 2010.  If edits are made to the tasks in Project 2010, use the Sync button in Project 2010 to sync edits back to the Tasks List.  To use the Open Schedule command a user must have either Project Standard 2010 or Project Professional 2010 installed on their client machine.

  • make sure to use project 2010 or 2013, that correlates to the version of SharePoint (e.g. 2013 with 2013)
