EPM 2010 Web Parts Team planner RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    EPM 2010 has been developed on top of Sharepoint 2010. I suppose that the functionnalities provided by EPM can be shown on a Sharepoint portal.

    Is there any reference on how to integrate a Team planner view into a sharepoint portal ?

    I found a list of web part, but not the team planner. Or maybe, i didn't read correctly, could be also. :(

    Maybe, I also have to think in the other way. Is there a kind of Project server portal (as Sharepoint Portal) that we could access through a client ?

    Thanks for your help.

  • Math,

    As I mentioned earlier, there is no Team Planner View for PWA. It is just a view in MS Project Professional.

    You could probably build a webpart for it, but I think you will be able to get better answers in the Project Customization Forum: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/project2010custprog/threads

  • Math,

    Team Planner is a  "View" in MS Project and not a webpart.

    I am not sure I understand your second question correctly. If you have deployed project server, and not just Project 2010, there are several ways to look at Resource Data.

  • I m working on project server. For the moment, i'm playing with Project Web Access. I have seen the different web part that we can integrate in a web site.

    These web part show different view of a project document, maybe it's also possible to shwo the Team planner view on the portal.

    My question was the following:

    I have a request from a client. He would like to see the Team planner on his portal.

    I have to list all the projects. (I think, the best idea is to use the web part : "Project Sites".) When he will click on a project, he will see at the bottom of the screen a view of the Team planner. Is that possible ?

    Do we have to customize a web part ?

    Do we have to call any PSI ?

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hello Math. For exposing this information in a completely seperate SharePoint environment, you could achieve a simillar effect through developing a report. Something like a SQL Server reporting services (SSRS) or even an excel report will do the trick for the list of project sites. Extract the project name and project site link from the 'MSP_EpmProjects_UserView' view in the Project Server Reporting database. Place the report in a central and public located area. Add a report viewer (Excel or SSRS) web aprt to your SharePoint site which points to your report. Data extracted in this method will not incurr any Project Server CAL licenses.

    As for the team planner, no out of the box web part exists for this but you could perhaps try a simillar technique through a custom report. Visio may be your reporting tool of choice in creating an effect such as the team planner view.

    Worst case scenario is diving into visual studio and creating your own designer web part which, yes, will require calls to the PSI. This will of course be the more time consuming approach but does allow you to get more creative.

    Good luck!
