How-To Setup Pilot Project Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to evaluate Project Online and what the project sites look like compared to '07 Project & Project Server.

    My objective is to be able to access and test projects online.<o:p></o:p>

    I have a Office365 project pilot account. I've installed Project 2013 on my PC. I've gone through the fasttrack setup. In Office365 Admin, "Office 365" is listed.

    I am missing the required information to save a project online, and possibly lack the necessary service to do so.

    I am not able to save a project on SharePoint (Office365). I have tried to configure my Project Web App Account, but it does not connect.

    What should the project server URL be, and how should my account name be qualified? I have used my pilot admin account and entered the pilot domain name as the project server URL.


    Thanks

  • After 12 days of searching for the answer, I spoke with a Microsoft Project technical support representative today and was informed that Microsoft does not offer demonstration access to project online.

  • Hello, I'd consider working with a Project Server partner for the trial so that you get the most out of it. They can also help set you up and get started. Find a partner here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/project/resources-for-partners-microsoft-project-FX103802119.aspx Alternatively see this post on a Project Online trial: http://blogs.technet.com/b/projectsupport/archive/2013/06/27/project-online-how-do-i-get-a-trial.aspx.

  • Thanks for reading my post. I need to compare what we operate in '07 Project to what is available in Project Online. We should not have to expend money with a "partner" to do so and is of no value to our company, and does not get a Microsoft client using cloud services.

  • Hello,

    If you do not want to engage with a partner you will need to use the resources available online, another link that might help you:
