There’s an old saying that a picture is worth a thousand words and I’d say that’s true (depending on the picture), but to really showcase Project Online a thousand words was insufficient! So Microsoft have created a video that’s worth a Gazillion words.

The video depicts Project Online / Office 365 PPM being used in the real world, a world where a truly international team, who we’ll refer to as the A-Team (minus the van and garage) come together to work on an exciting project. In the video we see the A-Team (I wasn’t kidding about the name) schedule in tasks, manage resources, chat via Skype for Business, upload documents using the underlying SharePoint features and eat sushi.

By the end of the showcase you’ll be eager to learn more and you will on the next edition of WPM News when we share with you some exciting announcements surrounding the Project & Portfolio Management Roadmap for Office 365!

As a teaser, here’s a list of some of the new & enhanced features:
