12 Designing SharePoint to support tracking, management and collaboration of projects

13 Create better visibility into projects Create a centralized repository for project information / documents Provide all audiences with a view into the information on projects Easy to maintain Core Goals

14 Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) Lists Document Libraries Sub Site Listing Web Part Templates Core Components

15 Utilize WSS to create Client / Sponsor sites Site dedicated to Client / Sponsor Profile of client Create as template Possibly leverage external info from existing systems Provide access to key groups / users / departments Extranet capability Core Design Concepts

16 Utilize WSS to create sites below Client / Sponsor Sites Establish hierarchy of sites below client / sponsor site Reflects 1 to many relationship of clients to projects Access to sites is based on what users / groups are assigned to site Core Design Concepts

17 Create custom lists to track projects Utilize lists to store info related to clients / projects Tasks Contacts Issues (bugs) Alerts Utilize document libraries / Form libraries to store information Requirements Specifications Contracts Alerts Core Design Concepts

18 Utilize sites construct for meetings within a project Project can utilize sub web part to track status meetings Create templates to easily extend Utilize WSS ‘Save as template’ feature Save content or just structure Core Design Concepts

19 Linking to other systems CRM systems Accounting systems Existing EPM systems Others Other Considerations

24 Home Tasks Projects Resources Status Reports How is Project Server 2003 Structured? Updates Risks Issues Documents Admin

25 Home Page Snapshot of many of the core items a particular user needs Updates for the user News tasks Status reports Project Server Home

26 Task Page Task view for a current user Only lists tasks for user Spans all projects Update time on tasks View in Gantt format Sends updated tasks to project manager Tasks

27 Projects Displays projects for user with access to projects Project manager can open projects in Project Professional to maintain and save back to Project Server Gantt Charting Project files (.mpp) are uploaded to Project Server to create online project Project Center

28 Resources Displays resources in the system Resource manager can add / modify resources Central repository of resources Resources are managed by opening up in Project Professional and then saving back up to Project Server Resource Center

29 Status Reports Central repository for status reports for user Status reports can be scheduled (daily / weekly) Resources fill out and submit to Project Manager Project Manager can aggregate reports and get a sense of how project is going Status Reports Organizer
