This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: New blog articles in Microsoft Community Hub.

We’re excited to share that as of today, you can edit shared projects in Project for the Web using a Microsoft 365 license. This frequently requested feature enables you to collaborate more seamlessly with your colleagues on projects. 





With this feature update, you can now access and edit the same set of capabilities in Project that you have in Planner. This means you can make updates to fields such as task name, start and due date, priority, labels, checklists, notes, and attachments. For the full list of what can and can’t be accessed with your Microsoft 365 license, check out our service description: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/servicedescriptions/project-online-service-description/project-web-service-description. 


To try this out, go to any project shared with you on project.microsoft.com and make changes to any task. 


This change applies to the following families of Office 365 suites and their education and GCC counterparts: 

  • Microsoft 365 F3 and Office 365 F3 
  • Office 365 E1 
  • Microsoft 365 for Business Standard 
  • Microsoft 365 for Business Premium 
  • Microsoft E3 and Office 365 E3 
  • Microsoft E5 and Office 365 E5 

To create a project or use more advanced capabilities such as dependencies or custom fields, you should procure a Project license. If you you're interested in trying out Project for the web, you can start a free 30 day trial at aka.ms/tryprojectnow. 


For more information on this feature check out our documentation.  We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback as you and your team members use these capabilities in your workflow. Please feel free to submit any feedback directly through our feedback portal. 

Thank you!
