Project Online enables organizations to get started, prioritize project portfolio investments, and deliver with the intended business value. It's the flexible solution for project portfolio management (PPM) and everyday work, delivered through Office 365—which brings together cloud versions of Microsoft's familiar productivity applications.
Get started quickly - Project Online helps you get started quickly. Visual tiles identify important steps and provide a simple guide for you to begin or flex project portfolio management (PPM) capabilities.
Access from virtually anywhere - Project Online extends your PPM experience to smartphones, keeping you up-to-date while you're on the go with an interface suited to small form-factors.
Flexible project portfolio management
Select optimal portfolios - Project Online enables you to define and select project portfolios that align with your business strategy–prioritize competing requests, run optimization scenarios under varying budgetary constraints, and maximize resource utilization to manage capacity.
Deliver projects successfully - Project Online helps you effectively manage everyday work in SharePoint Online and the tactical details of execution with Project Pro for Office 365 or Project Web App (PWA), while ensuring alignment with business priorities.
Gain visibility and control - See what your teams are doing–even when they're managing everyday work or ad-hoc projects in SharePoint Online task lists. You can also move ad-hoc projects from SharePoint Online into Project Online when you need more control. Now you can see all demand and govern accordingly, accurately measure utilization and make objective decisions that align with your strategic goals.
Easily create workflow - Project Online allows you to create workflows with Visio in SharePoint Designer, to subject each project to the appropriate controls throughout its lifecycle–to improve governance and control.
