Edit project details

< More Project help

Once a project is created in Project Web App, you may find that you need to change some of the general project information, such as the project name, description, or owner. The way that you make changes to an existing project is different, depending on whether the project is a SharePoint task list project, where the tasks are managed using a task list on the project site, or an enterprise project, where the tasks are managed in Project Web App.

Note:  You can also change the template used by the project, if appropriate. See Change a project’s template for more information.

To edit details for a SharePoint task list project:

  1. Go to the Project Details page:

    • From Project Web App, on the Quick Launch, click Projects. Click the name of the project you are editing to open the project site. On the Quick Launch for the project site, click Project Details.

    • From the project site, on the Quick Launch, click Project Details.

  2. Make changes to the information on the Project Details page, and then, on the Project tab, in the Project group, click Save.

  3. When you are done making changes to the project, on the Project tab, in the Project group, click Close.

To edit details for an enterprise project:

  1. Open the project for editing.

  2. If you are using Project Server 2013: on the Quick Launch, under the project name, click Project Details, or any other links to pages with project information, to make changes.

    If you are using Project Server 2016: you will be brought directly to the Project Details section to make changes.

  3. Once you’ve made your updates, on the Project tab, in the Project group, click Save to save your changes and publish them for others to see.

  4. On the Project tab, in the Project group, click Close. You can choose to check the project in, or keep it checked out.
