  • If I may jump in...

    Project Pro for Office 365 does not require a server setup. This is a desktop application which can work in a standalone mode for managing local projects directly on your computer. This is a monthly license and the software is always up to date.

    Project Online is a web application in MS O365 cloud which allows users managing in a consolidated way projects, do timesheet, collaborate with project sites, create and use reporting, track projects... It also has a web scheduling engine similar to Project Pro, but with less functionalities.

    Then you have another offer which combines both solutions: you can have Project Pro for O365 connected to your Project Online instance to get the power of a desktop scheduling software together with a web project management system.


    Hope this helps,
