Project for the Web Roadmap

Microsoft Project for the Web roadmap does not require a toolbar, saving, or introduction to planning techniques – it has it all. However, if your criteria are simple and you are not an expert in project management, Project for the Web quickly reaches its limits. It has few features, so you will feel restricted if you wish to explore the tool.

Moreover, Microsoft only offers generic features that anyone can use; it cannot fulfill specific requirements of one-off projects. Microsoft will eventually provide the most demanded changes in the most basic way so that every user can integrate it with their needs.

Customization allows the integration of projects with programs and portfolios. With a broad perspective, project managers can access consistent and combined information.

Additionally, your projects can be more comprehensive if you add personalized data to combine projects through the latest project characterization. Furthermore, connecting relevant and personalized data with projects will increase your data’s reliability and validity.
