Project Online and Project Server 2013 include features to prevent, identify, and mitigate potential business- or project-related risks and issues. To learn more, see Managing issues, risks, and documents in Project Web App.

Manage project resources

Provide project managers with the ability to view available resources, build teams, and request resource engagements.

Reporting and business intelligence

With Microsoft PPM solutions, you have several options for viewing and creating reports and working with Project Server 2013 data. Some reports are available automatically, and you can easily create your own reports using lots of reporting tools. To learn more, see What reporting tools can I use with project data?.

Schedule management

The schedule represents the tasks and deliverables that must be completed to deliver the project on time. You can create a timeline for your projects to track progress and manage change. To learn more, see Add tasks and projects to the timeline.

Time and task management

Use a centralized and common approach to time reporting and task management. Capture work and nonworking time for payroll, invoicing, and other business purposes. Efficiently communicate status on projects, everyday work, and ad-hoc requests to gauge usage peaks and valleys or progress on tasks. This helps you anticipate the effect on planned effort, cost, and timeframe. To learn more, see Tracking time and task progress.

Project Home

Project Home is the starting point that gives you quick and easy access to projects recently worked-on and important, top-of-mind projects. You can mark these projects as favorites with easy-to-use controls so they display prominently in Project Home. To learn more, see Get started with Project Home.
