Project and Planner not transferring data together

Copper Contributor



I have a project plan developed in Project profession desktop which I have uploaded in to PWA. This works fine, but when I create a link to a Planner in teams, the link is created, but no information is transferred from the project into planner - it just remains blank.


Any thoughts?

The link to the Planner project is nothing more than a hyperlink. There is no data exchanged between Microsoft Project and Planner. Most people expect what you expect, but that is not how this feature works. Sorry, but hope this helps.

Thanks for the response. 


That is a shame that this doesn't function as expected. It would seem almost pointless in its current implementation.


Best regards,

For whatever it is worth, I totally agree with you. What you expected from this feature is what most people expected, including me. When I discovered that the feature only created a one-way hyperlink, I was disappointed as well. It is what it is, and I doubt Microsoft will ever change this behavior. So, we live with its limitation.
