Project Online 2013 Licenses/Subscription RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am actually new to the  Project Online 2013 ( not the project server )  So have a question regarding the correct subscription for my users.

    A bit background, we are trying to implement a Project Portfolio Management solution at our organization and we are researching to see if Project Online is a good fit.

    I currently brought Project Online with Project Pro for Office 365 which has the following licenses

    1) Project Pro for Office 365

    2) Project Online

    3) Office Online

    4) SharePoint Online ( plan 2)

    I got 4 user licenses for the above subscription where the Users have access to PWA and can create projects and do stuff.

    We are planning on implementing it as an integration of SharePoint Online & Project. So now we are having our other team members who not PM's or Portfolio Managers who needs access and I am not sure what license to buy for them.

    1) SharePoint Online (Stand alone) : If they will be just working on the project sites / Team sites Do I need to get SharePoint Online Subscription so that they can have access to the tasks.

    2) Project Lite : If I get this license will my team members be able to access the PWA and even the SharePoint online sites, Will it cover both the options of Enterprise Project Types & SharePoint Task List Project Types.

    I think I should go with option 2 of buying Project Lite for my Team Members but wanted to make sure if this is the right Subscription to buy.

    Can anyone help me with this?? I tried contacting Microsoft Support through phone but they weren't able to help me or they created a ticket and I am waiting on their specialist to contact me.

    But any help is appreciated. Thanks
