How to Collaborate between MS PROJECT 2010 Professional and MS SharePoint – Part 2

 

Hi,

I will show you how to synchronize Tasks between MS PROJECT 2010, and SharePoint.

Here are the Tasks in MS PROJECT 2010:

and in SharePoint:

Notice that they are same!

No I will change some fields in MS PROJECT 2010:

and in SharePoint:

Now I am going to synchronize those Tasks:

and I will get in MS PROJECT 2010:

and in SharePoint:

Everything seems OK, except SP Task1. 15.01.2012 is non working day, and in synchronization Start  date and End Date are set to 15.01.2012, and because SP Task1 has Finish no earlier then 15.01.2012, this task is set as a Milestone! It does not seem wright!

OK. Now I will erase three Tasks in MS PROJECT 2010:

For the MSP Task 2 I will choose to keep Project Version:

Finally I get:

Notice, that MSP Task1, and MSP Task3 are deleted, because for them I decided to keep Project Version (and I have deleted them in MS PROJECT 2010), but MSP Task2remains the same, because I choose to keep the SharePoint version (and I didn’t accept to delete it, even I said so in MS PROJECT 2010).

Suppose that I have Sample Task in both, MS PROJECT 2010, and SharePoint:

Now I will change data for this Task in both, MS PROJECT 2010, and SharePoint:

image

image

After Synchronization I will get:

image

Notice that in MS PROJECT 2010 I have accurate data from SharePoint.

With this Post I conclude writing about MS PROJECT 2010, and SharePoint. Very soon, as I promised, I will start to write about MS PROJECT SERVER 2010, because it has much more possibilities than SharePoint, even MS PROJECT SERVER 2010 basically is SHAREPOINT, but……
