Join John Riopel for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a new enterprise project, part of Microsoft Project Web App Essential Training (2015).
- In this video, we're going to create an enterprise project type in the Microsoft Project web application. We're going to select the Projects ribbon and come to the Project Center. And on the Projects ribbon up top, we will select the New enterprise project type that we would like to create. In our case, we'd like to select one that's already been a relatively small project here called our Production Development enterprise project type. We select that, and we can then name the project, so we'll call this one Contoso Development.
And we'll say Create a Production Model as its description. And in here we can set up the start date, so we'll have it start as of February second. We'll press Save. Now, with every enterprise project type, additional information may be required. This would entail a new PDP page, or Project Details Page. As you can see, it's been added onto the bottom section of this Project Details Page, which was a minimal one to get started.
And we can fill in what additional information that's required for this particular project. So the Assigned State has a red asterisk indicating a required option. It's got some data in there, but we'd like to change that to an active project. We'd also like to put in a budget for this particular project, so we'll say 150,000. And we'll press Save. Now, also as part of the enterprise project type, when this was created, it created a schedule for us that was attached to that particular enterprise project type.
So we can click on the Schedule option in our navigation and here we can see the schedule that has been loaded in based on the enterprise project template. It has also created a project site for this particular project. So a workspace or a team collaboration site that gives us information about Tasks, Risks, Issues and other site information that we can manage in a later video. We're going to return to the actual Project Details area and we'll see that this project is continued to be checked out to us.
Now, it's very important that as we use projects in Microsoft Project web application, we check in the projects because we won't be able to edit them if we wanted to do this in Microsoft Project Professional. So we're going to go to the Project ribbon and on the Project ribbon in the Project Data Area, we'll select Close and check in our project. Now, in this video we created a enterprise project type, we've created a schedule, and as part of that enterprise project type, also we've created a project site.
We'll return to the Project Center using our Projects navigation and you can now see our project listed under Jan for Contoso Development in the Project Center.
