Project Lite - Admin tasks - Creating Users RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a dedicated team who will only set up new users on O365/Project Online, can we use a Project Lite license for these staff who are only creating new user accounts?

    They won’t be doing anything else in Project Online other than creating users.

  • Hi Dom,

    In terms of the licence, I believe Dale is correct here.  However, having a Project Lite Licence does not restrict you from what you can do in Project Web App (to my knowledge at least), and so this is open to "abuse".  In terms of Project Lite, it is aimed at TEAM MEMBERS, who plainly do not perform an admin role. Your local Microsoft Licencing Specialist should be able to provide ultimate clarification.

  • Dom --

    I do not believe you will be able to use Project Lite licenses for these staff, since they will be acting in the role of Project Server administrators.  If I am wrong, I will kindly ask the others in this group to correct me.  Hope this helps.
