Just a quick post to highlight an issue I came across that I thought might be worth posting about in case anyone else runs into the same issue. In Project Online, in PWA you can export most of the grids to Excel. I was testing something in PWA and came across an issue exporting the Capacity Planning grid to Excel, I clicked the button but nothing happened, the details grid would flicker when the button was clicked but nothing after that. Opened the browser debugger and tried again, no console errors but looking at the Network log an error 500 was thrown for the ProjectServer.svc:

SNAGHTML57ccc6b

Looking at the response I could see a general unhandled exception was thrown caused by a key not being present in the dictionary:

Looking at the request payload I could see two resource GUIDs were included:

Looking at the grid data there was only one resource present:

image

Looking back in the Resource Center, I did have two resources selected:

SNAGHTML586d081

One being a Cost resource, I deselected the Capex resource and tried the Export to Excel from the Capacity Planning page and all worked as expected.

If you do run into the issue with exporting the Capacity Planning grid to Excel, check the resource types you have selected, deselect Cost and Material resources then try again and hopefully that will resolve the issue for you. I will mention this to the Project team at Microsoft to see if this is something they are already aware of.

#ProjectOnline workaround for Project app link on #O365 waffle app launcher #PPM #PMOT #Office365

March 8, 2018 at 2:42 am | Posted in Administration, App, Configuration, Customisation, Fixes, Functionality, Information | 2 Comments

For organisations that only have one Project Web App (PWA) instance and use /PWA, today using the Project app link on the Office 365 waffle app launcher works as expected. For those organisations that have multiple PWA instances this can be an issue. The link I am talking about can be seen below:

SNAGHTMLc747618

This points to /MyProjects as seen above but when Project Online is present on the tenant it will always redirect to /sites/PWA as seen below:

SNAGHTMLc7422f6

This can be a problem for those customers that either have multiple PWA instances or do not use the default /PWA instance. Unfortunately the Project link on the waffle app launcher is not configurable so one workaround we have done for clients before is to not use the /PWA instance at all apart from using it as a landing page for the other PWA instances in the organisation. If you are in the planning stage for rolling out Project Online and know that you will have multiple PWA instances on the same Office 365 tenant, this might be a good option for you to consider and explore.

Firstly create the following css file that will be used to remove the PWA quick launch menu:

image

Save this on the /PWA site somewhere such as the Style Library:

image

Now edit the PWA homepage and delete the “Track your work” web part and add a content editor web part, in the content editor web part reference the .css file and change the chrome type to None:

SNAGHTMLc73b0f3

Click Apply then click OK and the quick launch will disappear. Add another content editor web part and update the Title to “Project Web App sites” or a more appropriate name as required:

image

Click the new content editor web part where is states click here to add new content then add in the links to all the PWA instances that you have on the tenant using the content editor web part controls – you have lots of options and can make it look as nice as you like. In this example I have just used a simple table:

image

Click Stop editing on the Page tab and you will see the following:

image

Then ensure all users of Project Online have read access to the /PWA site (do not grant higher access as you do not want them incorrectly creating projects here):

image

This way if a user clicks the “Project” app link on the Office 365 waffle app launcher they can at least then easily navigate onto the correct PWA instance.

You could take this even further and have multiple content editor web parts on the page, one for each PWA instance then use SharePoint’s audience targeting feature to show the correct PWA instance/s for the logged on user.
