How to create Project for Web


as I promised, from today I’m starting with Project for web, the brand new Microsoft Product.

Before my first screenshot you should be aware of two crucial things:

  1. Since this is Project for web, obviously you should have Office 365 subscription with license for it
  2. This Product is perfect, from my point of view. BUT! It doesn’t have everything (every single feature and possibility) like you have in desktop client, or Project Server!. Why? Because it is growing. Do not think about this product as final version. Not at all. It is just beginning of a great journey.

Now, let’s start. You can create new Project very easy. Login into your Office365 account and click here:


or, you can find it here:


and then:


This will bring you to next page:


Finally you will get:


and you fill get:


You can change Project name (instead of Untitled Project I will put “My First Project Web Project). As you can see, I am, by default Project Manager at this Project. Let’s say that I want Anita to be a PM for this Project:


For Project Manager you can choose a person who is active user on your O365 tenant, and it should have some license assign to it (it cannot be unlicensed user).

Last, but not least you can determine the Start date of your Project. For now, there is no possibility to put Finish date, and then calculate Start date, like you can do in MS PROJECT desktop, for example. I will put 11/04/2019 and I will get


Now I can start. As you can see there are three Tabs:

  1. Grid tab which you can see on the picture above
  2. Board Tab:


It looks familiar? You bet it does! It is Planner!

3. Timeline Tab:


If you click on home Icon:


you will get:


In Created by me you can see all your Projects, in Shared with me, you can se all Project which someone shared with you, and in Recent Tab, you can see the newest Projects.

If you click on specific Project you will land to the site of this particular Project!

In the next Blog Post I will show you how you can create Tasks, but for the end of this Post I have to show you how can you delete Project:




If you confirm that you want to delete a Project it will gone. No backup, no restore. Be aware of this!
