  • Erik van Hurck posted an update in the group Group logo of Project for the WebProject for the Web 3 months, 1 week ago

    At the beginning of the group I posted a poll: http://bit.ly/MPUG_group_questions
    And I’m very happy to see responses coming in. Please feel free to add your own response by clicking on the link above.

    For now here’s the question I got:
    I want to know is Project for the web and Project server same ?. We have some expectations from Project Server. My organization wants to track their all 9 construction projects with me as a single central resource PMO with 28000 activities in each schedule. Is it possible ?. As a stand alone version supports only 64000 rows and they want all projects combined into one and then display the final summary tasks on a single sheet of paper with Project names as P1, P2, P3 and so on… and then superstucture, and so on. Please advise

    Answer:
    Project for the Web isn’t the same as project server. It has some limitations that need to be taken into account. Please read about it here:

    One big limitation that you will run into is a max of 500 tasks on the project.

    A general guidance I would like to give is: Consider lowering the amount of tasks on your schedule. Because 28.000 tasks is not at all a best practise to consider.Read more about MPUG’s best practises here: https://www.mpug.com/tag/best-practices-2/
