Project Accelerator and Microsoft Project for the Web

Hi,

If you jump at the: GitHub – OfficeDev/Project-Accelerator: An Accelerator solution for Project for the web, you will find detailed instructions for the Project for the Web Accelerator. What is this?

The Project for the web Accelerator applies useful customizations to the Project for the web Power App. The Accelerator can easily be deployed to any environment that has Project for the web already in it. Scenarios included in the Accelerator are…

Project Requests. Create a list of ideas for Projects that include a business case and expected impact. Pro-tip: Create an Approvals flow using Power Automate to convert Project Requests into Projects.

Programs. Create a hierarchy of programs and projects see how work fits into the bigger picture.

Risks and Issues. Manage the surprises that accompany every project. Create and assign risks and issues to minimize impacts to a project’s schedule.

Changes. Use change tracking processes to help understand the history of a project.

Status. Centralize recording of project status to keep stakeholders up-to-date.

This is copied from the link mentioned above.

Let me show you how does it look. First I will create a simple Project using Microsoft Project for the web:

Project Accelerator can be found in PowerApps:
