Sharepoint tasks and Project WPA synchronization

New Contributor

Hello, I started using sharepoint tasks list to manage different projects of my company ( each project with a list like: https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/CompanyProjectSite/Lists/Tasks/AllItems.aspx).

Resources are shared among the diffent projects, then I tried to use the project desktop to add the files of each list as subprojects in order to have the overview of all the projects of the company ( mpp files from each company project site like: https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/CompanyProjectSite/SiteAssets/Tasks.mpp) checking for overallocated resources. I got several Project Desktop crashes, loosing important information. Then, I wanted to move to PWA hoping to avoid crashes and using the "Enterprice Resource Pool" to handle company resource. How can I synchronize the existing sharepoint tasks list with the PWA?

 

Thanks,

 

Roberto

Hello @RobertoPangallo ,

You can Add SharePoint Sites in PWA using the Site that contains a task list:

Here is a blog post that covers this (it's a very old post but the process is still the same):

Thanks @Paul Mather!

 

I meant synchronization between lists already created in the Office 365 Sharepoint collection "..../sites/.../" and the PWA ones "../sites/PWA/...".

 

In PWA, if I use the function "Add Sharepoint Sites", it will only search in the "../sites/PWA/..." collection, not in the  "..../sites/.../"...

 

Hello @RobertoPangallo ,

PWA can only include Task Lists from sites within the PWA site collection. It will not be able to access Task lists on sites in other site collections.
