Eric, great question. My answer is based on what I read in your question. You’re pretty good with Microsoft Project, which is required for shared resource pools so Plan 1 is out. Price may be a factor given that you have an old version.

I’ll start with your first question. The difference between Project 2019 Pro and Project Plan 3 is mostly a licencing difference. They are pretty much the same product. Plan 3 would continue to be enhanced but was very similar when Project 2019 first came out, still is, and unlikely to be enhanced that much…and both can connect to a Project Online server instance. Project 2019 Standard is much cheaper but cannot connect to Project Online, which brings me to your second question…server dashboards, which comes with Project Online. Neither product by itself will allow you to use Project Online as you need at least one Plan 5 account. It’s also a complex add-on and designed for a team. Hope all that makes sense.

So based on your question, I might recommend Project 2019 Standard. It’s your cheapest option and should server you for a long time to come. Hope that helps…
