Create a workspace site for a project

Workspace sites provide an easy way for team members and stakeholders to collaborate on a project.

  1. On the File menu, click Publish.

  2. If you have made changes to the plan and haven't yet saved them, you will be prompted to do so. Click Yes to save the plan.

  3. Click Create a workspace for this project.

  4. If your project belongs under another larger project, you may want to create the workspace site for your project as a "sub-workspace" under the larger project.

    Select the Provision the workspace as a sub-workspace of another project? check box. In the Select a project box, click the larger project, under which you are creating the workspace site for your project.

  5. Select a virtual server from the Virtual Server list, if applicable.

  6. Change the default URL for the workspace site in the Site URL box, if necessary.

    For example, if the project participates in a program or another company initiative, you may want use the URL associated with that program or initiative.

  7. Click Publish.


  • If another project is currently using the same workspace site URL, or if that workspace site URL was used by a project in the past and was never deleted, you will receive an error message and you must enter a different URL in the Site URL box. If you need to use that URL, contact your server administrator to remove the old workspace site.

  • If you created a project workspace site, and now want to link a new project to that workspace site, contact your server administrator.
