    You cannot control the Site Template used when you create a new enterprise project using the Microsoft Project client.  To make sure that each project uses the correct Project Site template, your PMs should always create their projects using the EPTs you created that are displayed by clicking the New button on the Project Center page.  Hope this helps.

  • Basically we are asking PMs not to create projects using MS Project Client.

    A good thing, my friend.  Make it a training and performance issue with your project managers.  Teach them the correct way to create a new project from PWA, and then hold them accountable for this behavior.

    By the way, if my original response answers your question, would you please kindly mark it as the answer?  Thank you.
