As you probably know, when you create a new project in Microsoft Project Server, a related project site is created automatically. That process works differently in Project Server 2016 than it does it in Project Server 2013. In this short article, I walk you through each version.
To enable this automatic option in Project Server 2013, you must change some settings in the “Central Administration” center:
You click “Application Management” from the left side menu…
…Then select “Manage service applications” under “Service Application”:
A list of services will be displayed. From the list, you select “Project Server Service Application”:
And then you select the site in which you want to enable the setting and click on “Manage” to proceed:
Finally, you choose “Project site Provisioning Settings” under “Operational Policies”:
Then you enable the site and designate “Automatically create a site on first publish”:
That isn’t the procedure for Project Server 2016, however. Here’s how it works in the newest edition of the software.
Open your site:
Click “PWA Settings”:
Choose “Connected SharePoint Sites,” under “Operational Policies”:
You’ll see the screen below:
Click “Settings” and a pop-up window appears:
Select your desired option (“Automatically create a site on first publish”) and click OK.
