Material Update on App RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi ,

    Can anyone help me understand if the Office 365 Project Time Reporter App helps to update the material progress on the Task updates page? (Ex: Miles,Kilometers etc)?

    If No are there any Apps which help achieve the same ?

  • Hi Prabhu,

    I never tested the App myself, but I guess it brings the same features that the task page in PWA. Thus you won't be able to update material resources through the app, since it is designed for team members to update their progress, but not for the project manager to track generic (cost, material, work) resource progress. 

    You'll have to use MS Project Pro or WPA to do that, no app for that. I think there are too many parameter to set (actual work, remaining, multi assignments, timephased assignment with manuel contour...) to have a user friendly app for this purpose.

    Hope this helps,
