Wait, so what is Project Online?

Project Online

Project Online is web-based, and is great for:   

  • Managing multiple projects.

  • Tracking work on timesheets.

  • Balancing broad resource needs.

(If you're looking for a hosted version of Project Server, this is it!)

Project Pro for Office 365

Project Pro for Office 365 is a downloaded desktop program, and is great for:   

  • Detailed project planning.

  • Managing resource calendars.

  • Rich analysis of project work.

(If you're looking for a subscription-based version of Project Professional, this is it!)

To be clear, Project Online is NOT a web-based version of Project Professional 2013.   Project Online is an entirely separate service that offers full portfolio and project management tools on the web. It includes Project Web App, and can, if you’re a subscriber, also include Project Pro for Office 365.

Got the wrong thing?


Call Billing Support.     It's easy to get confused about which project management tool is the right one for your organization. If you're the administrator who signed up for Project Online, and you think you've subscribed to the wrong product, the right first step is to look up your region's billing support phone number, and then give them a call.
