Awesome update for #ProjectOnline – create and manage up to 30000 projects #PPM #O365 #PMOT #MSProject
I am a Project Server and SharePoint consultant but my main focus currently is around Project Server.
I have been working with Project Server for nearly five years since 2007 for a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner in the UK, I have also been awared with the Microsoft Community Contributor Award 2011.
I am also a certified Prince2 Practitioner.
A new announcement on the Office blog today detailed some changes to Microsoft Office 365 PPM tool, Project Online. It will be possible to create and manager up to 30,000 projects. This is a great news as the 5,000 limit was an issue for some organisations. What is also coming is the ability to have a project site for each project, the limit previously was 2,000 project sites. This is achieved by setting the site collection to host the project sites per EPT as the limit per site collection is 2,000 sites. Be aware though, with the new solution the user sync and task list sync is only supported for Project Sites that exist in the same site collection as the PWA site.
There are also some new options in the project center to improve the performance for page load times when you have lots of projects by turning off the data roll up and Gantt charts.
