Microsoft Project 2016-Should I Upgrade?

Should I upgrade to Project 2016? That is a great question, but if you have a partner like Integent the answer is of course yes. We can save you any pain or down time because of our extensive experience working with Project. We will know from our hundreds of clients if there are any issues and we will make sure that you avoid all of them.

Here is the latest information on the Project 2016 upgrade from Microsoft:

The desktop product – Project Standard or Project Professional – and also Project Pro for Office 365.  If you have Project Pro for Office 365 then the question of upgrade doesn’t really arise – it is just like any other update that happens with the click to run subscription based products – but it just happens to take you up to a new major version number (The version if you go to File, Account, About… will start with a ‘16’).  Some organizations may control when the updates are available for their users – so you may not get it right away. 

Hang on – but what if I am using Project Pro for Office 365 because I like the subscription model for the desktop applications but am still using Project Server 2013?  No problem.  In this release we have both backward and forward compatibility (for now – more later) so you can use the ‘16’ version of Project Pro for Office 365, or even Project Professional 2016 to connect to Project Server 2013.  You can even keep your Project Professional 2013 and use it against Project Server 2016 when that comes out next year.  You will of course miss out on the new features related to resource management and you won’t get multiple timeline bars if you stick with 2013 – but you will still be able to work!  You can even share mpp files between the 2013 and 2016 versions – the 2013 users will not see multiple timeline bars – but will not break them for everyone else – they will just see the tasks on a single timeline bar.  They can even edit the timeline and the multiple timelines will still be there for the 2016 users. 

As noted above we will be there for you ever step of the way, to help with your migration, contact us today for any questions. Here is the entire blog post from Microsoft Technet with even more information on the 2016 upgrade.
