This project can only be edited through Project Web App. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I am the PMO of the company, and I want the Project Managers to submit their project plans at the beginning of the projects. 

    Once they have submitted their plans, I will upload (publish) them to their respective projects. After that the project Managers should only mark their tasks done from the "Synchronized SharePoint Task Lists" , but unfortunately I am getting the mentioned error: "This project can only be edited through Project Web App."

    I have turned on the option of synchronize the tasks with the SharePoint tasks list.

    Please guide me, I want a solution for this problem, I dont want to give access of the Project Plans (Schedule) to the Project Managers, I want to treat them as kids (once we agree on a plan, PM only tells me what is done and what is not done).

  • Hi, the question has already been answered here - 

    Ultimately, synchronising tasks to sharepoint provides a READ-ONLY view in sharepoint.   Your desire to update from SharePoint is not supported.  

    If you want PMs to tell you want is done/not done, assign them as resources and ask them to mark tasks as 100% complete via the MyTasks option in PWA.
