Project 2016 desktop app RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am new to Project Online and I downloaded the project desktop app as part of the offering. Is it possible to publish a projected created in the desktop app back into project online for others to collaborate?

    Thank you in advance

  • Hi,

    It is definitely possible. More than that, this is the strengh of the solution: you can use the powerful desktop application to manage your schedule and save it on Project Online to share it. For that, you need first to connect MS Project 2016 to your Project Online instance. See the procedures below. Once done, when you click on FILE/OPEN in MS Project, you will not just find repositories on your computer, but also any projects you're allowed to see in Project Online.
