Totally Online Project 2013 option? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to run Project 2013 with just a web browser, no Project Server of your own? Our students want to use it quickly and easily, like several other tools out there.

  • Hi,

    if you mean you want to run Project web only without any local installation at all, you can you the Project Web App from Project Online. As with the other Microsoft Office Web Apps, Project Web App does not have the full feature set as the Desktop application, but basic things, like creating task, linking them, assigning resources, etc. work fine.

  • Hi there,

    Project 2013 doesn't have to be used with Project Server 2013, you can you it "standalone" with local files the same as other office apps such as Word and Excel etc. Please confirm what you mean by use it with just a browser? What is the requirement?

    Many thanks

  • You can setup a "Poor man's PWA".  Basically this is creating a project with just "Resources" in the MPP file and saving to a file share.  Instead of saving your common resource data in a database, this technique allows several project schedules to share resource data in a single "Shared" project schedule.
