Whether you are currently using Microsoft Project Online or the on-premise alternatives; Project Server 2013, 2016, 2019, it is now time to consider the future. Microsoft’s innovation is focused around the new Project, ‘Project for the web’ (Pftw) – soon to be renamed to Planner with Premium Features. The new solution offers a refreshed, modern user experience that is much more intuitive than the outgoing legacy Project solutions. It is better aligned with MS Teams and the latest M365 solutions. Project for the web (Planner) is a scheduling tool that when combined with the Microsoft Power Platform provides a full enterprise / PMO ready PPM solution, that can be fully customised specifically for your needs to suit PMO’s and project teams of all sizes.

It’s time to look at your future project & portfolio management needs with the latest futureproof Microsoft solutions. We help you shape your future vision, deploy your new Power Platform based solution and migrate your project data from Microsoft Project Online. Our custom migration tools do all the heavy lifting and can be configured to suit your specific data migration needs.

Our approach to migrating from Project Online to Project for the web

Considerations when migrating from Project Online to Project for the web

Project for the web (Planner with Premium Features) provides an intuitive user experience but it does not yet have feature parity with the Microsoft Project desktop client. In all other regards, the wider experience offered by the Accelerator+ Power App is richer and more joined up when compared to the SharePoint 2013 based interface of Project Online which is spread between PWA (Project Web App) and the Project Site(s). Additionally with the data now residing in the Microsoft Dataverse, the solution is also more scalable and offers additional benefits including better integration with the wider M365 platform, including Teams. There are therefore many things to consider when migrating from Project Online to Project for the web and the Accelerator+ Power App.

Example considerations are displayed in the table opposite. We’ll discuss these and provide practical recommendations & solutions as part of your Envisioning Workshops.

  • Do you use master projects?

  • Do you have schedules with +1,000 tasks?

  • Are you making use of task custom fields?

  • Are you using custom user permissions?

  • Do you tag projects as confidential?

  • Do users complete timesheets in POL?

  • Are you performing what-if scenarios?

  • Do you have an extensive reporting suite?

  • Do you use multiple resource types?

  • Are you using the RBS?

  • Are external partners reliant on MPP files?
