  • Hello Steveviasat,

    Unfortunately,PS 2016 is not backward compatible with 2010 version.

    Upgrading from 2010 to 2016 is a good move as there are significant changes in 2016 version, be it functionality wise or from architecture(DB schema completely changed) wise.

  • Hi Steve,

    There are a lot of references on Internet, and you have to consider differences between 2010/2013 and 2013/2016. 

    Basically for 2010/2013, here is a good overview of the main differences in the article below or in this PDF. You can also add to this list a new reporting feature in MS Project Pro and a web scheduling engine improved.

    For 2016 versus 2013, here is another link. The main items are the new resource engagement feature, PowerBI integration, the multiple timelines in Project Pro.

    Concerning your last question, there is no backward compatibility between Project Server 2016 and Project Pro 2010. The only BWC was between 2010 and 2007. Note that you can use Project Pro 2013 with Project Server 2016 but you won't be able to use the resource engagement feature.


    Hope this helps,
