Group name and Project name in Microsoft Project for the Web


as you know, in Microsoft Project for the Web, before you can assign Resource to any Task, you must either create a new Group or use existing one.

Let’s say that I want to create new one.:


As you can see, first of all I should give a name to my Project. If I want to avoid that, I can try to assign a Resource to a Task:


but I will get:


So I will create a new one:


and I will get:


So, the Group is created, and John is in!

Now I will create a new Project, and I will name it My Project:


Because I have named Project, my new Group has a default name which is same as a Project name. Of course, I can rename it:


To conclude, if you want to create a new Group for your new Project, you should either give a name to Project, or you should give a name to a Group. If your Project has a name default group name is same as a Project name, and if it doesn’t have a name you can create a new Group via assigning Resource to a Task!
