What’s the issue?
As of 30 June 2017, Microsoft Project 2013 users will no longer be able to connect to Project Online.
Microsoft will be changing the minimum version you can connect to Project Online to Microsoft Project 2016.
This means that you will be blocked from connecting to Project Web App (PWA) and therefore will be unable to load or save edits to Project schedules, and other enterprise data such as Templates, Resources or Calendars.
This change enables Microsoft to make further enhancements to Project Online.
Who is affected?
All Project Online customers that use Project Professional 2013 will be impacted as of 30 June.
If you are using a subscription based click-to-run Project Pro for Office 365. As long as you have made all of the updates to your subscription, you will be able to continue using Project Online as per normal.
To check which version of Project Professional you have. Go int the program and select File > Account where the type of Project installation is displayed in the Product Information section.
What do you need to do?
If you wish to continue using this service, you must upgrade to the either Project Professional 2016 or the subscription based client before the cut-off date in June.
Your Microsoft Account Manager or your Wellingtone Sales contact will be able to assist you with any questions you may have.
