when you will read this post I’ll be at Adriatic coast, enjoying my holidays.
In this post I’ will explain how to manage Projects thru SharePoint 2013, and how to connect them with MS PROJECT 2013! Be aware of this:
- I will not explain in details how to use SharePoint 2013, because you can find that in many other posts. I have two SharePoint MVP’s gurus, Adis Jugo, and Toni Frankola, so you can ask them
- Everything what I’ll write is my personal opinion!
- Whatever I do, I’m doing it with full Administrators permission!
- I’m not going to talk about any Permission and how to set them up!
The Case! You do not have MS PROJECT SERVER, nor you are going to have it, but you have SharePoint 2013, and you have MS PROJECT Professional 2013!
I have my Test site in SharePoint:
I already have created Resources, so now I’m going to add some Tasks my Project (by click on Edit the task List on the upper left part of the screen), but first I want to see my Project in Gantt Chart View:
and I’ll get:
Finally, Tasks, Resources, and Predecessors:
As you can see I have three Tasks:
- Task 1 has Start and Finish Date
- Task 2 has no Start and Finish Date
- Task 3 has only finish Date
I’m going to open this Project with MS PROJECT 2013:
and I’ll get:
Task 1, and Task 3 have Finish no Earlier Than Constraint:
I’m going to rearrange this Project a little bit:
All Task has As Soon as Possible Constraint, and I’ve changed durations.
Now I’m going to save this Project back to SharePoint 2013:
and I’ll go back to SharePoint:
But! What if you do not want to use SharePoint in this way? What if you want to use Sharepoint just to Store your Project Documents, Issues, and mpp file? Read my next Post!
