Adding Project Server 2010 web parts to SharePoint sites
I am sure you are all following my recent advice and actively following this TechNet RSS: Newly published content for Project Server 2010 http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=186461 New and updated content typically appears Thursday night (Seattle time/PDT) and today take a note of the following important articles our technical writers have put together:
- Plan for Project Server 2010 Web Parts Provides an overview of the Project Web App Web Parts that are available in Microsoft Project Server 2010.
- Add or remove Project Web App Web Parts for a site in the Project Web App site collection (Project Server 2010) Describes how to add or remove Project Web App Web Parts from a site that resides in the same site collection as the Project Web App instance.
- Add Project Web App Web Parts to a site not within the Project Web App site collection (Project Server 2010) Describes how to add a Project Web App Web Part to a site that does not reside in the same site collection as the Project Web App instance.
- Upgrade considerations for Project Web App Web Parts Provides solutions to issues that may occur when using Project Web App Web Parts that had been recently upgraded from a Microsoft Office Project Server 2007 environment.
Why is the above important, well because it provides clear guidance on the Project Server 2010 web parts and how they can be integrate/reused outside of the out of the box Project Web App pages. It’s also important to note unsupported scenario so that we set clear expectations and you do not run into issues. In the end one of the most popular blog post I wrote 3.5 years ago: Adding an EPM Web Part to another SharePoint site is officially no longer valid and now with 2010 you have official TechNet doc on this topic!
