Project for the web used by project managers and team members to plan and manage work of any size providing simple, robust project management capabilities.

Overview of MS Project for the web

Project for the web, as a part of the Microsoft Power Platform (which consists of PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, and Power BI), includes the following:

  • Project Home allows users to coordinate all projects and view the most valuable roadmaps for your project management processes.
  • Roadmap is an instrument to track and trail a few projects simultaneously in one place.

The Roadmap is a widely customizable tool: project managers can add or remove projects and filter and cohort data. Users with Project Essentials and Project Plan 1 can only view Roadmaps, but with Project Plan 3 and more – they can create and share roadmaps.

Collaboration opportunities within Roadmaps presented by:

  • Ability to connect directly to projects from multiple systems in the organization, allowing each team to use the tools that fit their work style.
  • Collaborate with others by sharing a roadmap with an existing Microsoft 365 group or creating a new set of stakeholders.
