Description

Description

Project Professional is project management software. It enables managers to stay informed and control project work, schedules, and finances.

This donation provides one license for installing the software on a single device and one device client access license (CAL) for Project Server. The device CAL authorizes one computer or other device to access the services of Project Server regardless of the number of users (for example, a shared workstation).

Which versions of this software are available?

You can choose to download the current version or the previous version of this software. You can find out which version is the current one in the Microsoft Title Groups document. In addition, you can download the software in any language that's available.

Benefits for organisations

If you understand project management concepts, you can use Project to schedule tasks, allocate resources, track progress, and share project information. Project can be used for both large and small projects.

Major capabilities

  1. All Project Standard capabilities: Project Professional gives you all the capabilities of Project Standard. In addition, it provides at-a-glance resource management tools, integration with Project Server, and team collaboration tools using SharePoint.
  2. Automatic or manual scheduling: Project's scheduling engine can forecast the date of a task based on various factors, like dependencies, duration, and constraints. If automatic calculations aren't required, the user-controlled scheduling option gives you complete scheduling control in a given project.
  3. SharePoint synchronisation: You can publish project schedules to SharePoint task lists, allowing team members to independently update task statuses. Updates from team members automatically synchronise with Project schedules.
  4. Team Planner: The Team Planner lets you visually drag and drop resources in an interactive resource view to simplify complex resource scenarios. You can quickly spot unassigned or unscheduled work as well as overload conditions.
  5. Enterprise project management: You can integrate this product with Project Server and Project Online to give you control across all types of work and allow you to visualise performance through dashboards.

Important volume licensing information

Microsoft offers instructions on how to use a MAK or KMS key to activate volume editions of Office software.
