Editing the Project Plan from PWA ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In the Project Details Pane under Action Section  there is an EDIT option available. Can we alter the project plan (Sequence,Scheduling etc)  using PWA ? If so how will it reflect in the MPP.The Next time if some one make changes to the Project Plan using Professional then try to publish ?

     

    Can multiple users having same privilege edit the plan at the same time ?

    Regards

    Well, the feature you described is in Project Server 2010 and not in Project Server 2007, so I assumed you were using Project Professional 2010.  Regardless, yes, you will see the changes in Project Professional 2007 as well.  If you ask any questions in the future, it would help if you stated what version of the system you are using.  And be sure to mention if you are using Project Professional 2007 with Project Server 2010.
     
    And if this is truly your case, then you are missing out on functionality that Project Professional 2010 could provide you, including things like being able to inactivate a task easily, and using the new Team Planner view, among others.  Just a thought.  Hope this helps.

    Yes, anyone who has permissions to see, open, edit, and save an enterprise project can perform those actions using Project Web App.  While the user has the project open for editing, no other user can edit the project at this time.  After the user saves, closes, and checks in the project, anyone else with the correct permissions can edit the project.  Remember, only one user can edit a project at a time.  The next time you open the project in Project Professional 2010, you will see the changes made in PWA.  If you attempt to open the project in Project Professional 2010 while someone is editing it in PWA, the system will tell you the other user has it checked out currently, and will only allow you to open it Read-Only.  Hope this helps.

  • Hi Dale,

    We are using Project Professional 2007 Hope this would be applicable for that.

    In the above reply you have specified Professional 2010.
