Yippee! Just got MS Project Server 2013 all working, but I have questions... here is #2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I created a few test projects on the server using MS Project 2013 Pro, but now I want to know if it's a best practice to keep the .mpp file somewhere on the project server, so peeps can download and work offline. And if so, how to accomplish? Many of my students work in places where internet is spotty (downloads ok, but persistent connections not good). Also, many PMs like to work when on planes and other places where there is no internet. So what to do? thx!!!

  • Hi Jigs,

    Here is the procedure to work offline with Project Server 2010 but still applicable for 2013.

    DO NOT save the project locally, but follow this procedure, otherwise you could create version conflicts.


    Hope this helps,

  • Thx! That will do it then, although I predict some of the users that I know will not be following the procedure and will will save the file locally, make the edits, and then try and save it back to the server - ha! But perhaps after one unsuccessful go, they will know. Cheers!
