Project Online integration with Office 365. RRS feed

All replies

  • Project Online is an entirely separate service that offers full portfolio and project management tools on the Web. It includes Project Web App, and can, if you’re a subscriber, include Project Pro for Office 365.

    You need 2013.

  • Thanks, Kirtesh.  A Microsoft representative got back to me via voicemail, and explained that Project Online can be integrated with SharePoint, via Office 365 Enterprise E1, allowing users to share project tasks.

    Do you concur with this? (We don't have a need for the desktop version, Project Pro).

  • As long as they are on the same tenant.  This allows synch of Project Tasks into your Exchange Task list, and shows all of your tasks in your Personal site.  

    Project Pro is useful in several scenarios...

    1. You need to move away from the default calendar of 8 hours per day.

    2. You need to create and modify project templates to use with Enterprise Project Types.

    3.  Your PMs and Schedulers need the advanced features of Project Pro.

  • Thanks, Ben.  If we experience a need for those features down the road, can we upgrade to Pro?

  • Hi Jim,

    It's not so much an upgrade, you just add in Project Pro for O365, or utilise Project Pro 2013.  Consider Project just another way to access the data.

  • Hi Jim,

    Yes, Project online can be integrated with SharePoint, Exchange, Lync etc..

    There are some limitation of Project online when it comes to Scheduling that is why we use Project Pro which is more simple and enrich with all the functionality.

    As of now if you don't need it then you can only use Project online and later point of time you want it then either go for Project Pro for office 365 or project professional 2013.

    Microsoft is having 3 kind of flexible services for us  :

    1. Project online  -- This will have only project web application

    2. Project Pro for office 365 -- This will have only project pro

    3. Project online with Project Pro for office 365 -- This will have combination of both Project online and Project Pro

    You can choose as per your need.
