Project Online, The newest Microsoft Office 365 family member

Last week Microsoft announced availability of the Office Customer Preview for public download. And right alongside it, Microsoft released a preview of the new Microsoft Project with two options to try out the latest release for yourself:


  1. Sign up for the Project Online Preview with Project Pro for Office 365
  2. Download Project Professional 2013 Preview & Project Server 2013 Preview


The team has put into this release a lot of work. Now you can quickly get a portfolio view of all your projects and resources, prioritize initiatives, and deliver on them by leveraging the familiarity of SharePoint. Project Online makes it easy and fast to get up and running on a full range of project portfolio management (PPM) capabilities including portfolio selection, workflow, resource capacity planning, dashboards, and more.




Project Web App (PWA)


Microsoft wanted to make it easy for users to start managing projects with Project Online. The new PWA comes equipped with visual tiles to guide you through important steps in managing your projects and get started quickly to make the most of the flexible PPM capabilities in Project.


Collaborate using familiar tools


Collaboration starts with SharePoint and with this release, integration between Project and SharePoint is even better. The ease of use of SharePoint allows team members to jump right in and update their task status via team sites. These team sites centralize your unique project management needs storing relevant documents and a dedicated OneNote notebook to capture critical project details. With improved social capabilities in SharePoint, working together has never been easier.


Up until now, when rattling off the list of services that comprise Office 365, Microsoft always mentioned Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and Lync Online (along with Office Web Apps, for good measure). But with the coming Wave 15 version of Office 365, that list gets an addition: Project Online.

Imagine you’re locked in a tower. Better yet, imagine someone else is locked in a tower. Besides perhaps savoring the moment of schadenfreude that comes with locking someone in an imaginary tower, such visualization also yields some insights into how to our own creativity works. It turns out, we’re more creative when we’re solving the problems of others rather than our own.
