Customizing Project for the web

Customizing Project for the web

You have several options for customizing Project for the web. You can extend the Project for the web entities and add your own entities using the Power Platform, and PowerApps and Microsoft Flow provide powerful tools to build custom applications and workflows.

Reporting

You can connect to your Project for the web data by using Power BI Desktop and the Power BI Template File. See Connect to Project for the web data through Power BI Desktop for instructions on how to get set up with Power BI, start using the template file, and what reports come with it.

You'll need at least a Power BI and often also a Project subscription to use this reporting tool. If you want to read, build, or customize Power BI reports on Project for the web data, you need to be a licensed user of Power BI Desktop or Power BI Pro. See Power BI Pricing for more information.

Additionally, you will need the following Project subscriptions to:

  • View data: No additional subscription is needed to read Power BI reports built on Project for the web.

  • Build Power BI reports: You'll need Project Plan 3 (formerly Project Online Professional) or Project Plan 5 (formerly Project Online Premium) to build Power BI reports on Project for the web data.

  • Customize out-of-box Power BI reports: You'll need Project Plan 3 (formerly Project Online Professional) or Project Plan 5 (formerly Project Online Premium) to customize the Power BI reports provided in the Power BI Template File for Project for the web.

PowerApps and Flow

Can I read and write Project for the web data using PowerApps?
