Engagement tab not visisble in 'MS Project Pro for Office 365' after activating the new Resource Engagement feature RRS feed

  • Question

  • A few days ago, I activated the 'New Resource Management Features Available' option in Project Online via 'Server Settings > 'Additional Server Settings'.

    However, the 'Engagement' tab in 'MS Project Pro for Office 365' is not visible. How do I activate this feature in 'MS Project Pro for Office 365' ?

    'MS Project Pro for Office 365' is up to date.

  • Hi,

    the engagement tab is only available after applying view "Resource Plan". Did you try that?

  • Hi Spiro,

    In the backstage menu, did you updated Project Pro for O365 to the latest version?



    Hope this helps,

  • Hi Guillaume,

    Yes, I tried that too. I am up to date, but still no Resource Plan view in my list of views in MS Project Pro O365.

    I have placed a support request with Microsoft.  They should be getting back to me shortly.  I will keep you posted.

  • Thanks Spiro.

    Just to be sure: do you see the engagements contextual tab when you select the resource tab in the ribbon, as shown in the article?

  • Hi Guillaume,

    It may be a licensing issue.

    As I mentioned, I have "my own" subscription to Project Pro for O365 (i.e., this license is not furnished to me by customers).

    I use my Project Pro O365 to connect to different customer Project Online instances.

    So, what I did a couple of hours ago was to go into my Office 365 Account > Service Settings > Updates > and changed it to 'FIRST RELEASE' from 'STANDARD RELEASE'.

    After clicking Save, a message displayed that the changes should take effect within 24 hours.  It has been 3 hours now and I am still waiting to see new features... ZZZZzzzzz ZZZZZzzzz zzz

  • Hello Barbara,

  • Hi Diego,

    Can you give more details?

    Are you talking about MS Project for Office 365, MS Project 2016, PWA (web access of Project Online)? Moreovoer, there is no such "dashboard" tab anywhere. Are you refering to the report tab in Project Pro? Engagement feature? Dashboard app in Project Online?

  • Hello Guillaume, 

    Yes I'm refering to the MS Project 2016, PWA (web access of Project Online).

    How can I view the report by using what if analysis.

    I have already the  Dashboard app in Project Online

    Regards,

  • Hi,

    Same concern as in the other post: there is no such report called "what if analysis". Do have a specific reference in mind? You could use reports in MS Project Pro, or create your own report in Excel or PowerBI, but you'll have to define and then create it.


    Hope this helps,

  • Noted Sir, I will simplified my question.

    In my MS Project 2016 Online 365 account. I want to see the TAB "Analyze Cost", Pls let me know how to see that tab?

  • Hello All, Pls reply my question above?

  • Hi Diego,

    Unfortunately we have no clue if you cannot tell us more. In the Project Online world, there is no such tab called "Analyse cost". There is a feature like this in the portfolio analysis module, but I'm not sure if you are refering to it. Please read this white paper about the portfolio analysis to confirm.

    Then tell us where does your need comes from? Did you see that tab somewhere? Did you read it? Is it a business need  you want to implement without knowing the existing features? So without knowing if there is already something similar?


    Hope this helps,
