Server Reporting in PWA

<p>Hi!  I’m Mike McLean, Program Manager with the Microsoft Project team.  Today we’ll discuss some of the changes to server reporting in the next version of Project Web App (PWA), including an introduction to the new OData service.  Historically, users access data in PWA by going directly against the database or via cubes available on-premises.  With the launch of Project Online this release, we also have users storing data in Office 365.  To provide access to this data, we’ve built an OData service that can be used to retrieve data stored in your instance of PWA.  This OData service is available for both online and on-premises deployments.  Excel 2013 now has native support for OData feeds and can authenticate to Office 365 to retrieve data from Project Online.  More information on OData can be found at http://www.odata.org/. </p>

Timesheet Improvements for End Users in Project Web App

<p>Hi, my name is Matt, I’m a PM on the Project team and I’m here to talk with you a bit about the improvements that we’ve made to the timesheet experience in the new version of Project Web App. Over the course of the next couple posts I’ll talk about improvements targeted at both end-users, backend administrators, and developers that streamline the timesheet process and provide increased functionality to make you more effective. In my first post I’d like to chat about the improvements that we’ve made for end-users, the people who actually have to fill out their time card every week or so. Here on the product team we realize that one of the most tedious, and yet common, tasks that many users have to complete using Project Web App (PWA) is filling out their time card. To help ease the pain and make it faster for you to get back to your actual work we’ve made several improvements to the experience in PWA 2013.</p>

Introducing Task Path

<p>As your projects grow in complexity and in length, it is easy to lose sight of how all of your tasks fit together. Project 2010 and earlier allow you to highlight and filter down to the critical path of your project, which is a great way to see which tasks affect your project’s finish date. Many times, the project finish date doesn’t tell you the full story though. For example, let’s say that you are managing a construction project, and your favorite contractor suddenly announces he is retiring at the end of the month. You check your project plan, and you see that you were expecting him two weeks after this deadline. However, the list of predecessors that are driving his tasks is daunting. </p>

Demand Management, Now with SharePoint Designer

<p>In project management, a project life cycle can be a long-running process that spans several phases. For instance, new R&D projects need to go through several phases, including creating the proposals, selecting a subset of them, planning, assigning resources, and finally managing and executing the approved projects. In general, managing any work request, whether it’s a new idea, or an IT change request, would have to go through several phases until its completion. </p>
