Project is a project management software with powerful features that help
managers develop plans, assign tasks, track progress, manage budgets and analyze
Project can be used with SharePoint, and thereby Project tasks can be shared
with users who don't need all the project management features but just
want to have an overview over tasks.
The synchronization is not automatic. Whether you create new items in SharePoint
or Project, click on the Sync button in Project to update SharePoint with
the data from Project and get any changes made on the SharePoint side into
Project (including live views, permissions and versions).
In the first demo below Peter Kalmstrom, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com
Business Solutions, shows how to save a Project file to a SharePoint Tasks
Sync Project file with SharePoint Tasks list
In Project, open the file and Save as. Select the option 'Sync with SharePoint'.
Select a new or existing site and verify it.
Select the list you want to use and click on Save.
Now items are created in the Tasks list from all the Project items, and links
are established between the Project and SharePoint fields. The Project file
itself will be saved in the SharePoint Site Assets library.
You can also do the other way around and open a SharePoint tasks list in Project.
Even if you use Project to view the data, everything (like views and permissions)
is stored in SharePoint.
Sync SharePoint Tasks list with Project
There are two methods to open a SharePoint tasks list in Project:
In the SharePoint list, click on the Projects button under the ribbon
Copy the URL to the SharePoint site. Open Project, click on the 'New
from SharePoint Tasks List' button and paste the URL. Then click on the 'Check
Address' button and select the list you want to open in Project.
Now a new Project file will be created, connected to the SharePoint list and
added to the SharePoint Site Assets.
