Customizing Project Site Home Pages RRS feed

  • Question

  • Right now project site home pages have a Document library web part in the bottom-right corner. I would like it to be in the top below the Project Summary web part, so that it is full width. I can do this for an individual project, but how can I edit the view that all projects use for this page?

  • Hi Éric, You have to create a new project site and customize it as required. Then save it as a template and associate it to the appropriate enterprise project type. Here is a good blog post http://www.prasannaadavi.com/2013/05/customizing-project-site-template-in.html Note that it will only be applied to new sites but not the existing ones.

    Hope this helps,

  • Awesome. Is there no way to apply the template to existing projects? (I'm thinking about how any changes I make to the Project Details Pages are propagated across all projects)

  • You cannot propagate the site temple updates to the existing sites, it has to be done manually. 

    For the PDP, thé are not part of the project sites. They are located in a pwa librairy and every projects refer to the unique PDP from this librairy. Thus if you update a PDP, it Will be automatically propagated to all projects' PDPs.


    Hope this helps,

  • Hi Eric,

    Our product, 3rd party tool called FluentBooks supports update of existing sites (we call it Bulk Update SharePoint sites). You can select configuration changes (any set of elements including data) from a new site and push it to selected existing project sites.

    You can read more at our online user guide: https://help.fluentpro.com/fluentbooks_2013/export/bulk_export_sharepoint_sites/start

    As for changes in PDPs - changes that you make to PDP will be visible for all projects that use this PDP.

    Hope this helps.
