How to automatucaly update task lists connected to PWA 365? RRS feed

  • Question

  • WE have a PWA project center with over 800 sub sites, each containing one synchronized task list with PWA, all these projects are NOT enterprise projects, we want to automatically schedule a republishing of all the projects to have accurate data, what we encountered is that although team members are reporting in the SharePoint task list that is not immediately synchronizing with PWA and our reporting is not accurate.

  • Are you managing projects via tasks lists (vs using the PDP)?  If so are your users project server users or NON-project server users... 

    If you have a project site that has a task list connected to it, from my can only (I MAY/COULD be wrong) have the project site task list update when you make a modification via the PDP or Project Professional...

  • we are using task lists that are connected to PWA, the issue is that when a project is not enterprise the synchronization is not happening automatically, we need to make that happen every time a task is updated.

    If we set the projects in "Enterprise Mode" then the task list can only be updated in Project Pro or PWA requiring a crazy amount of licenses for users that only need to report in a task list

    The task list is supposed to sync automatically and we are experiencing delays where the list is not updating in real time.

  • Recently ran into something similar - Microsoft (we met with MS and had MS project server license reps present also) states if it anything is done automatically (project to sharepoint site for example and a user just wants to update a task) THAT user needs a project license...

    The only way around not having a license is by doing a manual process... 

    We just wanted Project/Program Managers to be able to view... which is not possible without a license; according to MS

    So IF you want to get around the license issue, the only way is "manually" doing something such as getting the list information, populate that into excel and then drag and drop into a sharepoint list
