One Board is simply not enough to run a project, as you are dealing with different Teams and Task types. Every project team and task types might have different stages/buckets. For example: The Marketing Team and Logistics Team has a completely different project delivery workflow but I must manage them together in one project plan.
All of a sudden: there are no different task types in Project. I use categories or write letters in the title, which is very difficult to handle, as the categories are mixed with so many others (like countries for example). So: I need different task types and different boards in one project to manage everything.
While thinking how to stick into Ms Project as an alternative to other Task management Systems. This is one big dealbreaker for me. One Idea to solve it: Forget the main tasks in the board and show the checklist points only. So you would be indepentent of the planned tasks (I guess thats your main problem when thinking of multiple boards)

Hi @TonyProctor , thank you for the extended reply. While I agree to your explanation about project theories, I'm totally confused about your recommendation for "project online".
I would say, that I'm very experienced project online, but I was expecting that P4W is the new world. Thats what many Microsoft pages say: a "Transition from Project Online to P4W" is recommended (e.g. "Project for the web and Project Online" in support.microft.com). Also our Microsoft Partners said this.
Besides - I can't see how my inital problem will be solved with Project Online, as it does not support multiple boards or different task types also. There are other solutions in the market that do.

Hey @YayYay ,
Great suggestions / observations. Yes Project for the web is the latest PPM tool from Microsoft and should be the solution you look to use if you are using Microsoft for Project / Tasks Management.
