Project Server 2007 Project version control RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    We currently have Project Server 2007 installed on Sharepoint Services 3.0.  Is there any way that I can enable version control on the Project files themselves?  I know it can be done in the Project Document workspaces but is there any way that it can be done on the Project itself?

  • Hi,

    Out of the box, PS 2007 has a pseudo version history for the schedules via the scheduled backup capabilities. This will backup the latest version of the schedule as it stands at the time of backup.

    For your specific requirement you would need to write specific code to backup the project schedule to a library and bind that to the Project published event in the event handler capability. I am pretty sure if you do a bing search, there is a third party solution out there that can achieve this for you.

    Hope this helps,

  • Hi there,

    My 2 cents on Alex great advice: You have out of the Administrative backup job which retains the nos of the versions as specified in project server but which can be used only for the administrative restore. Would like to understand what is the need of the project files to be saved on a document workspace? for each save operation, if you save the file on a document workspace by an Server side event handler or  third party tool, It will not be a good idea as It will impact the WSS Content database. Instead, You can choose to have a project detail page as a webpart in PWA which has a button to save the file locally or save it on a workspace whenever a Project manager wants to save it.
