Task conversations in #Projectfortheweb #Collaboration #WorkManagement #ProjectManagement #MSProject #MicrosoftTeams #MicrosoftProject #PPM #M365

Want to have conversations around tasks in Project for the web? Want to use Microsoft Teams? Well now this is possible in a feature recently added to Project for the web. On the task information panes you will see the Conversation section as seen below when using the Project for the web UI:

From the Grid or Timeline task information pane:


From the Board task information pane:


This does not appear when using the Project Teams app. As you can see in the screenshots, the project does need to be added to a Teams channel to use the conversation feature. Click the button “Add this project to a team” to launch the Teams app:


Click “Add to a team” and start typing then select the correct team in Teams:

Add tab

Now click the “Set up a tab” button. Now select the Project or create a new project if needed and click Save:


Now the project is added to a Teams channel. Back in the Project for the web interface, refresh the page and access the Task information for a task and notice the option in the Conversation section now has an “Open in Teams” button:


Clicking the task will take you to Microsoft Teams with that task open as seen below:


You can then have a conversation in Teams that is associated to that task – the link in the chat will take you to that task:

Teams Task

In the Project for the web UI, you can’t see the conversation, all you see is the speech bubble in the Quick look column to indicate there is a conversation:


In Microsoft Teams, the conversation appears in the Posts tab in the Channel where the Project tab was created:

Teams Posts

You can continue the conversation from the Posts tab or from the Project tab, to load the conversation in the Projects tab, click the task menu then “View task conversation” or click the speech bubble in the Quick look column:


You can start a new conversation for a task from the Project Team app – there is a new option on the Task menu:


Another great addition to Project for the web for improve team collaboration, making use of the Microsoft Teams conversation feature.
