Project Online is Microsoft’s cloud-based enterprise tool for project and portfolio management (PPM). It is part of Microsoft 365, the cloud based Microsoft Office solution and can be used only in the browser. For the Project Online Professional Client, there is also a so-called click-to-run version available, which can be installed locally on your computer.
Project Online supports all roles in enterprise-wide project and portfolio management. It provides a central data storage of all projects with portfolio overviews, a central resource administration, role-specific use and the option to be enhanced as needed.
Project Online Professional is the cloud version of Microsoft Project Professional. It can be used as a standalone tool but also in connection with Project Server on-premises or Project Online. There is no classic installation. Instead, it is obtained and updated (click-to-run version) from the Microsoft Cloud. This is important, as new functions are made available in Project Online on a regular basis. Those functions can only be used with the online version of the software.
As a component of Microsoft 365, Project Online is a service provided by Microsoft in the cloud. Its functional scope offers roughly the same possibilities as the on-premises versions Microsoft Project Server 2019 and the latest Project Server Subscription Edition. In addition, Project Online is continuously extended with new functions.
You can subscribe to Project Online as required. You will not need your own server infrastructure at your company. The users connect their desktop application directly to the service running in the cloud. Or they access the Project Web App directly from their browser.
The browser-based Microsoft Project Web App is available both in Microsoft Project Server and in Project Online. With all established browsers, its users have role-specific access to central data, resources and functions. It allows project managers to plan projects. However, the desktop version offers a notably higher range of functions.
