Microsoft Project for the web, formerly known as Project service, is Microsoft’s most recent offering for cloud-based work and project management. Project for the web provides simple, powerful work management capabilities and can be used by project managers and team members to plan and manage work of any size.
Microsoft Project for the web is the latest addition to the Microsoft Project product family, which includes Project Online desktop client, Project Online, Project Server, and Project desktop. Project for the web (or simply Project) is built on the Microsoft Power Platform and includes the following:
- Project Home
- A new project management experience that is easy-to-use, web-based, and especially created for informal project managers.
In this context, Microsoft Project Online editions have been renamed in Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) into new “Plans”. Microsoft currently uses both terms in parallel, depending on the licensing program: For the Enterprise Agreements (EA/EAS), the current names are still valid, for Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), they changed it to “Plans”.
Microsoft Project for the web is available in all three Project subscriptions:
- Project Plan 1
- Project Plan 3
- Project Plan 5
