Table of Contents

A fresh new experience

Microsoft Project 2019 offers a redesigned user experience that is both simple and intuitive. Your teams can quickly add new members and set up tasks, then easily switch between grids, boards or timeline (Gantt) charts to track progress. Because Project is part of the Microsoft 365 family, project teams can save time and do more with built-in connections to familiar apps like Microsoft Teams and Office.

Collaboration made easy

Microsoft Project 2019 is designed to do much more than just track progress. Project works with Teams to support collaboration and makes it easy to manage all aspects of a team project, including file sharing, chats, meetings and much more. Team members in scattered locations can even edit tasks simultaneously. This way, they can get more done together, no matter where they are. To help teams stay on track, Project offers an automated scheduling engine based on effort, duration, and resources.

Project with Teams

Insights at your fingertips

The new Microsoft Project 2019 provides greater visibility into your projects and powerful tools to help you anticipate future needs. Create stunning interactive dashboards in Power BI, so you can visualize every aspect of each project at a glance. Get the big picture view of all your projects across your organization with the visual, interactive Roadmap feature.

Extensible platform

Project is built on the Microsoft Power Platform. This enables you to connect to the apps and services you already use and also to create custom desktop and mobile experiences to meet the specific needs of every project team. Easy to use tools make it simple to create automated workflow processes that streamlines compliance and increases efficiency. Do all this and more with the confidence that comes with knowing you are building on the powerful security and compliance capabilities of Azure—the world’s most trusted enterprise cloud.
