Active Directory Synchronization to Project Online 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've scrubbed the forums and TechNet for answers and cannot find anyone with answers.  Here is the problem:

    We turned on Active Directory Sync in Project Online 2016 and pulled in 6500 employees.  The fields populated:

    1. Default Assignment Owner: With AD User
    2. Resource Name: With AD User
    3. Group: With AD Department
    4. Timesheet Manager: with AD User?
    5. Email Address: with AD email address

     One would believe that Microsoft would align AD Manager--> Timesheet Manager and Department --> Resource Department.  Are there any methods to map these fields prior to the Sync schedule?  Any tools out there that allow us to do this?  

    As many of you know, you cannot edit 6500 resources in MS project.
