This post is the first post from a series of posts I am going to write based on Project Online. It is very simple to get a Project Online Office 365 tenant but once the PWA site collection is there, what next? Where do you start? How do you get the most out of it? This series of posts will guide you through these steps so that hopefully you get the most out of Project Online.

Firstly I will go through creating the PWA site collection, for this you will need tenant admin access as this is created from the SharePoint Admin site on the Office 365 Admin center.

From the Office 365 Admin site below:

Click Admin > SharePoint:

On this page you can manage all the SharePoint related functionality:

As you can see, there is already one PWA site collection on this tenant, you can have up to 3 per tenant. To create a new PWA site collection click New > Private Site Collection with Project Web App

image

This will load a form, the completed form can be seen below:

Click OK. You will now see the new PWA site collection appear but with a spinning circle that states “The site collection is being created.”

After approximately 10 to 15 minutes the PWA site collection will be ready and accessible, notice the NEW text in green:

Clicking the new PWA site link will load the site collection properties:

Click the Site Address and the PWA site will load:

There it is, in a handful of steps you now have a fully functioning Project Online PWA site collection.

Next up we will begin configuring and customising the Project Online site collection.
