MS Project Publish Button Missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • For some reason my Publish button that you normally find in the backstage in MS Project Online is no longer showing up.

    I am connected to the server. I can check in and out projects. I can save projects. But the button to Publish is missing.

    I did try doing an online repair. But that didn't fix the issue.

    Has anyone else come across this problem? Or are aware of a fix?

    Thanks,

    David

    If you click File > Info, do you see the Publish button at the top of the Info page in the Backstage?  That is the new location for this button, by the way.  Let us know and we will try to help you.

    Very odd.  I have never seen this behavior.  Why don't you just add the Publish button to your Quick Access Toolbar?  Click File > Options > Quick Access Toolbar.  Select the Publish command in the list on the left side and then click the Add >> button.  Once you have added this button, use the Move Up or Move Down button to move it to the place where you want it.  Just a thought.  Hope this helps.

  • Mine is doing the same thing. I haven't used the desktop client in a couple of weeks so I am just now noticing it. Was there an update recently?

  • Hi,

    I have the same issue.  Each time I publish, I have to search for publish to be able to publish.  Is your fixed, already?

    How did you bring it back?

  • works!  Another way, I found out accidentally is to search "publish" and click on it, it will publish for you but it's good to know where the intended location.  Thank you!

  • I'm sorry, I used to see "Mark as answer" but I don't seem to see it anymore.  I thought I clicked propose as answer already.  Did MS change forum interface recently?  I don't see that button anymore, am I missing something here?

  • This is what I see, there is no "Mark as answer" anymore but only, propose as answer, not sure whom I am proposing to MS maybe?
