Migration from Project Online to Project for the Web

migration from Project Online

Project management is evolving, as is the technology for managing projects and portfolios. With the introduction of Microsoft Project for the Web, project managers are finding they prefer this solution over Project Online. So for broader adoption, they need to migrate their project data.


Microsoft Project Online migration is frustrating

In today’s tech-driven workplace, PMs face new and emerging challenges and need efficient PPM solutions. Acknowledging the project management complexities, Microsoft offers Project for the Web as today’s enterprise solution. Some organizations use Project for the Web side by side with Project Online. With this approach, you visualize and manage your projects across both PPM systems via Project Home.

Many organizations plan for broader adoption and require partial or complete project migration to Project for the Web. This PPM system allows PMs to adopt flexible hybrid approaches and enhances communication and collaboration to boost productivity. If you use Microsoft Project Online, migrate to Project for the Web to receive these benefits.

While Project for the Web provides the ability to import MPP files, it also includes manual Project Online project migration. This means you may spend days or weeks transferring project data for tasks, budgets, and schedules. Manual data migrations also increase the risk of errors and data loss. It is complex and frustrating. To simplify your transition from Project Online to Project for the Web, consider external migration solutions.


Project Online migration should not waste your time

Automated migration solutions reduce challenges and eliminate errors that can occur when migrating projects between multiple platforms.
