The future of project management is built on the new Project for the  web.   More details to be presented at this years Ignite 2019 at Orlando Florida’s Orange County Convention Center.  Over ten sessions are slated for this years conference.

Microsoft has release a new version of Project Online called Project Web.   The user interfaces is simpler and integrates with many of online projects, such as Power Apps, Power Bi, Office 365, Dynamics and other tools using Common data Service (CDS) for apps.

Its slated to fill the gap between Planner and Professional.  Below is a screen shot of the simpler and easy to used form to enter task.  The number of fields presented are few at the start. Project manager can add or remove fields as desired.

In the example below, I am tracking the deliverable, assign to resource, number of days, start and finish date.  The last three columns were added because I am from old school, however, it can be a simple list of tasks (deliverables) and assignment.
