Editing Project Schedules in Project Web App vs. Project Professional

Hello there!

The title indicates the topic here.  This is a question we regularly get asked here as MS Project Now.  I could always rattle off the big-ticket items such as task dependencies and leveling.  When it came to providing a thorough comparison that’s where I would leverage the expertise of others. 

Although web-editing in Project Web App is a great feature, it is by no means meant to function in any way as a replacement for Project Professional. 

Regarding what can and cannot be done, an associate pointed me to a great post on the office blogs here. by Mark Sargeant.  For convenience I also provide the content of the post below.  Thank you to the Office Blogs!

if you have additional questions feel free to comment on this post or contact us.


Managing project schedules in Project Professional vs. Project Online / PWA

Project Professional 2013 and Project Online / PWA are distinct tools which work together, empowering businesses to deliver winning projects while effectively executing and achieving strategic priorities. People across the organization regularly update statuses, manage resource allocations, report progress and balance strategic objectives. These people need different capabilities at different times. 

Right tools, right time

Project Professional 2013 is the project manager’s everyday workhorse. They can easily plan projects and collaborate with others from virtually anywhere, staying organized and keeping projects on track with the only project management system designed to work seamlessly with other Microsoft applications and cloud services.

Project Online and PWA for Project Server link the team together and allow everyone to manage everyday work and collaborate effectively. Management also uses Project Online or PWA to access powerful strategic tools like Project Portfolio Management (PPM).

One of the easiest ways to understand the differences in these tools is to look at their output. Project Professional gives project managers the ability to manage complex project plans and easily synthesize information to guide teams in the right direction and report progress to management. Out-of-the-box reports present project data in an easily consumable format. Each report can be easily customized in an Excel-like experience. Sharing is simple, since reports are optimized for copy/paste.


Project management across tools

Most project managers use Project Professional 2013 for the many complex necessities of managing projects and Project Online / PWA when they are away and need to work with their projects. PWA is also ideal for team participants to update their everyday work and collaborate from virtually anywhere. The richness of Project Professional 2013 is seen below, with a few features highlighted to illustrate the unique capabilities of the desktop client.


The Team Planner is a particularly powerful tool within Project Professional 2013 which makes it easy for project managers to identify and resolve potential resource overallocations. Issues can be fixed with the click of a button as the scheduling engine automatically moves tasks to avoid schedule conflicts, or manually with drag and drop.
