How to disable new project creation through Project Professional for project managers in Project online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone,

    Is there any setting/permission through which project managers should be able to create new project only through project web app and not through project professional ?

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

  • Hi,

    Unfortenaly no. If a user (PM) has the permission to log on MS Project Pro and to create new projects, he/she will be able to create projects both from PWA and MS Project.

    It is recommended to educate and train PM to only create projects from PWA. Another way is to have a PMO which creates projects and assign them to the PMs. Thus you can remove from the PM group the permission to create new projects.

    Hope this helps,
