Backup Enterprise Global Template RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi gang,

    Your opinion... should we backup the enterprise global template if we are using Project On-Line.  If so, how is this best achieved?

  • Hi Spiro,

    I'd suggest to save locally the enterprise global in order to keep a backup since the "administrative backup and restore" feature is not available in Project Online.

    To do that, since you can no longer since 2007 save the enterprise global template as a separate Microsoft Project Plan (MPP) file, create a new project that uses the enterprise global template, and then save that file locally, selecting the option to save all enterprise custom fields and global items.


    Hope this helps,

  • And in addition to Guillaume's excellent reply, definitely save a backup of everything where you can.  For me this means all the ECFs etc are documented and exported to tables in word/excel where possible.
