Microsoft Project Server 2013 is a SharePoint application that allows project managers to publish their projects from Microsoft Project Professional to a centralized database where project, task and resource information can be shared with executive management, resource managers, project resource team members and other project managers. This role based software has a simplified, non-technical interface that allows the Project Server Administrator to add users, set security permissions and modify the look and feel of Project Server without requiring the technical background of a SharePoint programmer or database manager.
This instructor led, 2-day Microsoft Project Server Administrator training course will teach the student how to change the settings and features of the organization's Project Server installation to support the project management processes that are intended to be used by their organization. The course will also teach the non-technical functions for supporting the day to day operation of Project Server. Note: (On Premise Only) means that you will be using a project server that belongs to your organization within the company domain and have full access to Project Server and SharePoint Central Administration controls.
