    Hi, I am anticipating that my question is feasible as well as meaningful?
    (Version of MSP 2016 with Project Online)
    scenario: –
    Multiple Projects loaded in PPM Online
    Each task within the projects has Predecessors and Successors loaded (following Best Practice)
    There are cross-project dependencies loaded as well. (Direct links – not using Deliverables and Dependencies on MSP and SharePoint)
    (I am not taking into account critical resource requirements as part of this exercise)

    1) Is it possible to obtain a Critical Path across a numerous projects in a Portfolio.
    2) If I was able to obtain 1) above – would it have any true meaning?

    Thanks Cliff

    If you are using direct links, you should be able to get the critical path in a Master Project file.

    Hi Megan, thanks for responding. I am just clarifying my question a bit more.
    If I had 300 or more project making up 1 portfolio in Project Online, would I be able to get a critical path? Understanding the limitation of RAM (16 Gigs) and the loading of the 300 odd projects into a master file?
    Is there perhaps another way besides loading all the projects into one consolidated Master schedule?
