Updating the Status Manager, the sleight of hand

3 comments
The status manager is the resource who is to receive status updates for a task, from any resource assigned to this task. The Status Manager (task field) is described in this page from Microsoft support.

Known limitation
Microsoft Project has a limitation that prevents a schedule owner from setting a task’s status manager to anyone except himself or herself. Hence, if you want to assign another person as the Status Manager to a task within your project plan, you need to ask him/her to edit the schedule in Microsoft Project and assign himself or herself as the Status Manager.

The beginner's guide for Project Server/Project Online reporting using oData

3 comments
Starting with a definition: OData is a REST-based protocol for querying and updating data and is built on standardized technologies such as HTTP, Atom/XML, and JSON. It is different from other REST-based web services in that it provides a uniform way to describe both the data and the data model.”
Source: webopedia.com

Applied to Project Server (2013 +) or Project Online, ProjectData is the OData service, implemented with the OData V3 libraries, which allow to query project data.

You can access the ProjectData service through a Project Web App URL. The XML structure of the EDM is available from the http://<pwa_site>/_api/ProjectData/$metadata.

The final note on managing Master projects and subprojects with Project Server (and Project online)

16 comments
This article will describe all the necessary information required to understand how to manage master projects and subprojects within Project Server. Note that the approach is similar with project Online.
For the illustration, I will use a team of 4 persons:
  • Jane Doe, project manager
  • Jeremy Cottino, project manager
  • John Doe, team member
  • Yan Yellow, team member

And I will use the delegation feature to illustrate what other users will see when using the tool.
