Just a quick post, if you ever receive the following error when trying to delete a Project Detail Page, ensure the PDP has been removed from all Enterprise Project Types (EPT):

The error message is:

“An event receiver has canceled the request.”

Removing the unwanted PDP from all the EPT’s resolved it for me.

#ProjectServer / #ProjectOnline custom PWA homepage #PS2013 #PS2010 #SharePoint #HTML #MSProject

This post covers an example landing page for PWA using HTML and an image. Firstly select your chosen image and add on containers, other images, text etc. – anything you want really to define the image hotspots. These hotspots will become links. See my example below:

Image for PWA homepage example

This was a picture taken from a recent trip to Venice Smile

Upload the image to the PWA site collection.

Once you have the chosen / updated image you need to create the hotspots or image maps.There are plenty of tools available or online sites that do this. I have used the following site:

http://www.maschek.hu/imagemap/imgmap 

Upload your chosen image then add the image maps as shown below:

image

Once all the maps are added update the other properties such as Href, Alt and the target.

Scroll down and you will see the code, copy and past this into notepad or your favourite HTML editor:

image

Now you need to update the HMTL to add the image reference and tag the map to the image, see the first line:

image

Navigate to you PWA homepage and add a script editor or content editor web part then paste the HTML code in:

image

I used a script editor web part in this example.

Now the image will be loaded to PWA with clickable links on the image maps Smile

image

This was just an example so I didn’t spend much time on the image but with a creative mind you could really liven up your PWA homepage, Project Sites or any SharePoint landing page etc.

#ProjectServer #PS2010 / #PS2013 bulk #Project site creation using #PowerShell 3.0 or later #SP2013 #SP2010

I recently had to bulk delete and then bulk create project sites for a client. Rather than engaging one of our devs I wrote a PowerShell script to do this. This does need PowerShell 3.0 or later to work. This post covers the bulk create script as this is generic, the bulk delete was specific to the client so I haven’t published that. The script can be downloaded from the script galley below:

http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Bulk-create-Server-Sites-784f7b29

The web service proxy URLs will need to be updated for your PWA instance, replace the http://vm753/pwa with the correct URL.

The script can be seen running and creating sites below:

From the PowerShell ISE:

From PowerShell:

Project Sites are created using the correct site template that is associated to the EPT.

If all projects have a site associated, the following is returned:

Test this on a test / dev farm before running a live production farm.
