Microsoft’s flagship product when it comes to Project and Portfolio Management is called Project Online. And if you aren’t in the cloud yet (you really should make an effort) there is also an “on-prem” version called Project Server. These products contain so much additional functionality when we compare it to the stand alone application Microsoft Project. Additional functionality such as Risk management, Portfolio prioritization, Shared resource pool, powerful company-wide project and resource overviews, App’s and Power BI reporting functionality. On TPC I cover most of these topics. Some of the content you might like is The Project Online administrator links and Project Server workflows, do or don’t?
But there is much more content, please explore and I hope you find the content that you are looking for. If not, you can always reach out by adding a comment on a post.
There are a number of “project” applications in the Microsoft landscape. The ones in the title aren’t even all there is. So, when I got this question from one of my readers I was interested to help out:
Let’s tackle this beast as my first article of 2023!
Hi reader, I was recently asked by one of my clients to give them an exact number of all the files that were in the Project Online environment. The reason behind it was that the organisation wants to use Microsoft Teams to store all project related files instead of the classic Project Sites.
This is of course music to my ears! I get to play around with Power BI and the client is moving towards a future where Teams is available to all their teammembers. You might remember my previous video in which I share how to connect Teams with Project Online.
In this article I’ll share with you the steps I took to create this report. Then, at the end of the article I’ll share the video on how to do it. And as a final offer, I’ll give you the template I created so that you can do it even faster yourselves. Sounds goud? Here we go!
Hi again reader, I hope you are doing wonderful! I’m excited. And let me tell you why. Projectum, the company I work for, created a new PowerApp that lets you link specific parts of a Project Online Project to a Teams Channel.
Now why is this great? Well just ask the 121 voters on this UserVoice item I recently covered. In the last post I did I shared the 15 items Microsoft needs more information for to implement. Projectum took a shot at it, and let me say it is spot on! And even better yet! It’s free and available for you to download right now.
Microsoft announced a couple of great new developments during last years Ignite (you can read more about it here). And for Microsoft Roadmap, time has come to start playing around! For a full video on the feature release you can find it on the TPC YouTube channel.
This two part blog post will take a close look at the Microsoft Flow content that comes with the new Roadmap feature. There are two versions of the Flow, one for a connection with Project Online and the second will connect Microsoft Roadmap to Azure Boards.
I would like to introduce an acronym to everyone. This acronym pops up in a lot of different versions and I would like to add one to the bunch. I’m talking about the MVP. Product managers and entrepreneurs might know it as the Minimum Viable Product, Microsoft consultants/enthusiasts might know it as the Most Valuable Professional. And I would like to provide a new one for an MVP:
Minimum Valuable Project (schedule)
The Minimum Valuable Project (schedule) is a MS Project schedule that has a number of criteria checked to be of any use to a Project Manager.
Change is in the air! That’s at least how I feel after reading up on all the things that were announced at the Microsoft Ignite 2018 event. I’m still wrapping my head around all that has been announced, but I also wanted to give you some insights on what will change for The Project Corner.
I’m so very happy! And it should come as no surprise to you if you are a LinkedIn connection or know anything about me. I’ll tell you why I’m happy:
I’m an MVP!
This basically means that I would need to change my UserVoice series a little bit by stating that I’m reaching out to my fellow MVP’s in the Project and Portfolio Management space. Today, we have Guillaume Rouyre as a guest MVP. He wanted us to take a closer look at the UserVoice item:
Provide support for backup and restore of a single project
And just like many great ideas on the UserVoice for MS Project… This one has been on the site for quite some time, Feb 9, 2016! to be exact.
Have you ever worked on a schedule and, when adding resources, wondered about this small little checkbox called “effort driven”? It’s a small checkbox that’s not always as visible as you might want it to be. And it has massive effects on a schedule.
This post discusses the effects of the Effort driven option.
