Integrating Microsoft Project Online and Planner
March 4, 2021
Using FluentPro Integration Hub to work in between Microsoft Project and Project Online enhances effective project management.
A digital age that calls for a digitized action plan
The reality of doing business in the modern world is staring at organizations. The old methods used to achieve Portfolio Project Management (PMO) and Project Management Office goals no longer deliver the best results that today’s innovative businesses require. Top PMO directors and PPM administrators face serious challenges – how to get a full view of the complete picture of all projects in the company instantly, without having to extract and aggregate data manually. While working with Microsoft Project Online helps to an extent, there is more to achieving organizations’ strategic goals regarding project management and project execution.
The modern workforce entails that everyone’s job is a bit overwhelming and fast-paced. Today, employees need to crosslink their jobs with teammates, stakeholders, and management at multiple levels. There is also the need to get updates all the time. Using old-school task and project management approaches such as Microsoft Excel spreadsheets is too problematic and unrealistic in this digital economy – too many things/inputs and tasks to keep track of. Eventually, things get lost. Many tasks are left undone. Important schedule breaks, not to mention starting with the project. All these are technical issues that lead to the erosion of business value and demand for the right technical solution. While you might have gotten important tools like JIRA, and Azure DevOps, alongside your Project Online and Project Planner, you still need a unifying solution that will sift the best from those tools and deliver the best results. The most recommended is FluentPro Integration Hub.

How FluentPro Integration Hub takes down project management problems and maximizes business expectations
FluentPro Integration Hub solves your Project Online and Project Planner problems by acting as a state-of-the-art platform for efficiently connecting and unifying portfolios, works, and project management tools.

From that full view and quick data reporting from multiple sources, FluentPro creates a crosslink within your organization’s workforce, enhancing effective communication with your teams and speeding up the pace at which information is shared across multiple levels of involved stakeholders and management. This allows management to keep accurate track of all project-related tasks at once. With this new capability, schedules are met, the budget is efficiently utilized, and the planned Return On Investment (ROI) from project investments becomes achievable at a lesser cost.

The digitized features of FluentPro Integration Hub
FluentPro Integration Hub is a unique, cloud-based integration solution that combines a project portfolio, task/work management, and its financial management systems. It features unification capabilities that enable PMO directors and PPM administrators to connect and synchronize project data to and for multilevel systems like Microsoft Project Online, Office 365 Planner, Jira, Microsoft Planner, and Outlook.
Using Integration Hub, you can synchronize data manually (by setting it to the user’s request) or by “Schedule mode,” meaning the system will automatically run a thorough check on the source system to find changes and transfer them to the targeted system. With Integration Hub, companies can also set up their configurable and extensible business rules for efficient and secured data transfer.
Although FluentPro Integration Hub is sold and hosted as an online version on FluentPro Microsoft Azure Infrastructure with full integration functionality, customers can install it independently without any problem. Using Integration Hub to integrate and aggregate data from/to Project Online and Microsoft Project Planner create more sophisticated resource planning and management, plus an informed portfolio and up-to-date project overview.
