Another thing you can do with MS Project-Share Point sync is map custom fields.For example, Share Point list is designed to be simple, for end users really, meant not to overwhelm them with too much detail or metadata.If you are an experienced Project Manager and out of the box Share Point Tasks Web Part is not enough for you to manage projects, you are in luck.In Share Point Online/Office 365, you can easily sync MS Project with Share Point Tasks Web Part.Essentially, you need to tell which columns in Share Point will hold MS Project information once you click sync button.
As such, in this case, you can: If you read through this sync MS Project with Share Point blog post and are still craving for more adventure, I have some bonus material for you.
This would allow you, as a Project Manager, to enjoy all the sophisticated features of MS Project like resource management, reporting and task management, while providing a clean and simple interface to tasks for your team members via Share Point Task list. If you already have some tasks in Share Point Task List and want to create your MS Project Schedule using those tasks, you can open that task list in Share Point using MS project.
To do that: So next time you need to open the tasks in MS Project or make quick changes, you can just open that file – it will automatically sync the changes from Share Point Task List to that file.
