Microsoft Project Online Dashboard App (Official, Free)
If you own Office 365 and Project Online, you are now able to download free dashboard app from Microsoft Store to enhance reporting capabilities to your projects and portfolio. To do that you just need to enter your portal, then click on the machine wheel button on the top right (next to your picture) and then on “add an app” link. After that you will be redirected to page with potential apps, which you are able to add. Enter “Office 365 Project Portfolio Dashboard” to search bar on the top of this screen. Nothing were found in local resources, but one app found in Office Store. Install it. Trust It and wait a little bit.
After that, you will see it in application list (Site Content) – so just click on it. After click, you will be redirected to dashboard center, where fun begins. Now just enjoy! On the left side, you have separate areas (Overview, Projects, Tasks, Resources, …), on the top you have selection of dashboards with filtering possibilities and additional options. From my point of view – great, simple, good as an additional dashboard overview to all the projects.
From the experience all the customers want “some” BI solution for their Project Management, but in some cases dont know, what to display on dashboard or report, in come cases they made one report and thats it…This should provide all the basics. If you want more, there is PowerBI for example. So as I said – by me this is another stream for nice and quick reporting. You can build another realy concrete reports in PowerBI and embeed these into your SharePoint Online or Project Online pages.
