Project Online enables organizations to get started, prioritize project portfolio investments, and deliver with the intended business value. It's the flexible solution for project portfolio management (PPM) and everyday work, delivered through Office 365—which brings together cloud versions of Microsoft's familiar productivity applications.
Project Online helps you get started quickly. Visual tiles identify important steps and provide a simple guide for you to begin or flex project portfolio management (PPM) capabilities.
Project Online extends your PPM experience to smartphones, keeping you up-to-date while you're on the go with an interface suited to small form-factors.
Project Online enables you to define and select project portfolios that align with your business strategy–prioritize competing requests, run optimization scenarios under varying budgetary constraints, and maximize resource utilization to manage capacity.
Project Online helps you effectively manage everyday work in SharePoint Online and the tactical details of execution with Project Pro for Office 365 or Project Web App (PWA), while ensuring alignment with business priorities.
See what your teams are doing–even when they're managing everyday work or ad-hoc projects in SharePoint Online task lists. You can also move ad-hoc projects from SharePoint Online into Project Online when you need more control. Now you can see all demand and govern accordingly, accurately measure utilization and make objective decisions that align with your strategic goals.
Project Online allows you to create workflows with Visio in SharePoint Designer, to subject each project to the appropriate controls throughout its lifecycle–to improve governance and control.
Share documents, follow people and sites, or simply keep track of what people are working on. By binding together the social experiences of SharePoint Online and Project Online, you can facilitate discussions and information sharing to help you complete projects and everyday work.
Project Online enables you to see summary dashboards, plans, and timelines in PWA, helping you glean insight and make better decisions across a collection of projects, a particular program or portfolio. Self-service access enables decision makers and analysts to quickly mine and aggregate data–to understand risk and align long-term planning and short-term execution needs with business priorities.
Project Online simplifies IT management with straightforward provisioning, enterprise-grade reliability and integrated administration with SharePoint Online so it's easier for your IT staff to administer.
Quickly act on new challenges or respond to big opportunities. Shave time off discreet processes. With Project Online, you can choose apps from the SharePoint Store to meet the needs of your business.
Tap into the latest Project templates on Office.com from within Project to help you get started quickly. Project also helps keep you organized by providing quick access to recent files and locations from the Backstage.
Stay in control of your project plans no matter the size. Rich, out-of-the-box reporting tools within a familiar Office-like experience help you quickly and easily measure progress and resource allocation. With Task Path highlighting in the Gantt Chart, you always know how your tasks come together and can identify which tasks are the most critical to your project's success.
Improved integration between Project and Office 365 (and SharePoint) enables you to share the latest status, conversations, and Project Timeline through a dedicated project site. Create the project site with a few simple clicks to quickly share project details with your team, keeping everyone connected and organized.
The Timeline view helps you visualize your project to deliver stellar presentations to your team, executives, and stakeholders. And because Project lets you design and print your reports, you can easily share insights that help you better communicate progress and achieve results.
Enhanced tools like Team Planner help you see and amend potential problems before they can impact your schedule. With Project, you can set tasks to "Inactive" and quickly analyze "what if" scenarios without recreating your entire project plan.
The new Office Store provides Apps for Office that extend the functionality of Project to solve unique problems to meet your needs and the needs of your business.
Project works well with Office, Office 365, SharePoint, and Lync®, to give you a complete collaborative project management system. You can easily copy project information to Office applications such as PowerPoint or email and save important plans and details to Office 365 or SharePoint. Improved task list synchronization between Project and Office 365 or SharePoint helps you quickly deliver project information to your team and easily receive their changes from virtually anywhere.
Project integration with Office 365 enables you to send instant messages and kick off real-time conversations right from your project with Lync Online.
Office 365 and SharePoint social capabilities work with your project site to facilitate discussions and information sharing so you can get projects and everyday work done. In addition, SharePoint search functionality makes it easy to find the right information to effectively complete everyday work and save you time.
Use Project as a subscription delivered through Office 365, with the same features as in Project Professional 2013. Project Pro for Office 365 will get users up and running quickly with application streaming technology and automatic patching. It also enables users to work from the Windows PC of their choice through Project On Demand, which allows them the option to install Project on multiple PCs and even temporarily install Project on kiosks while they're travelling.
