Query on adopting ms project in a small organization RRS feed

  • Question

  • we are a small team of 14 people in my organizaton, presently tracking our tasks and updating it on excel. We need to generate report and also track our tasks in a more organized manner. We have a workgroup of 14 windows 8.1 systems. Can I install Sharepoint 2013 in one of these systems and then install ms project server 2013 in that system? Also install ms project standard 2013 in other 13 systems so that users can update their tasks so that it rolls over to the server and a report could be generated from the server?

    Thanks

  • mparam,

    First of all MS Project Standard does not work with syncing to SharePoint 2013. You will need MS Project Professional.

    Secondly, I think installing SharePoint Server/Project Server could be an overkill for your team considering its small size.

    I would suggest to explore Project Online, which is a ready to go solution from Microsoft. I think it is a better solution.
