This is a new mini series for the new Project for the Web application that will look at various ways / examples for integrating with Microsoft Teams for improved collaboration. This blog series will talk about Project for the Web: https://pwmather.wordpress.com/tag/project-for-the-web/.

I previously posted a examples on integrating Office 365 Project Online with Microsoft Teams, here are many examples for Project Online: https://pwmather.wordpress.com/tag/microsoft-teams/. This series will build similar integrations but for Project for the Web.

In this first post, we will keep it very simple and just surface the Project in a new Team linked to the Office 365 Group used for the Project. Firstly for this example, as we want to link the Project in a Tab in a Team Channel, we will create a new Team linked to Office 365 Group. If your Project is not linked to an Office 365 Group yet, for example if you haven’t added any team members yet, access the Project and link this to an existing Office 365 Group or create a new Office 365 Group as required.  To create / link the Project to an Office 365 Group, access the Project then click “Group members” in the top right corner:

Group

Here use the menu to either create a new group or add to a group. For this example I’m going to use this project and group:

ProjGroup

This Office 365 Group doesn’t current have a Microsoft Team associated. Now jump into Microsoft Teams and click Join or create a team at the bottom left below the Teams you are a member of then click Create a team:

Teams1

Click Create from…

Createfrom

Then Office 365 group:

O365group

Scroll and find the group you want, in this example I selected the group I created for the Project:

ProjGroup

Now click Create. We now have the new Team linked to the Office 365 group associated with the project:

Team

In the General Channel I will create a new Website tab to link to the project:

Tab

The URL used here is as follows:

https://project.microsoft.com/?org=cdsOrg#/taskgrid?projectId=projectId&dynamicsUI=true

Where {cdsOrg} is the Organization project for the web is deployed to, {projectId} is the project ID for the project. The last query string on the end is dynamicsUI=true, this is to remove the Office 365 header and the left navigation pane to give a better embedded experience. Without the dynamicsUI query sting:

ProjwithNav

With the dynamicsUI query string:

WithoutNav

Back in Microsoft Teams, we can now access the Project plan inside Microsoft Teams:

ProjInTeams

This could be automated if needed but the manual steps are so simple. Next up we look at adding more Microsoft Teams integration for Project for the Web.
