Not possible to set a global.mpt for all users? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi! In previous versions of Microsoft Project it was possible to define a global.mpt file to use for all users in an enterprise. Isn't this possible anymore?

    I've looked through Group Policies and even the registry to find that setting. But I cannot find it anywhere. Isn't it possible to define this anywhere?

  • Hi Kenny,

    I think it was a mistake, that your question was moved from the Project Standard and Professional forum.... :-(

    If you had a server, you would use the "Enterprise Global" for the most things that you would like to define with the global.mpt.

    If you want to use a central global.mpt file for all users, I would put the file somewhere on a file server and copy it to the user profile folder using the logon scripts.

    Kind regards

  • Hmm, we don't have Project server. Atleast not yet. It's quite expensive. So I guess the only way of doing this is to copy it to the local user profile during logon. Hmm, I'll have to do some scripting. But that shouldn't be that hard of a task :)
