Business Issues

Project Server/Online supports only single version of live project

1

Only one version of the project is maintained as a live entity within Project Server/Online

Maintaining multiple copies of projects results in duplication of costs, resource loading, issues with master project/programs, project site links and cross project dependencies etc.

Unable to roll-back changes after saving project data

2

The out-of-box functionality restricts users from undoing the changes after a save event. The multiple undo's only work up to the last save.  Any change done on the project schedule, prior to the save event, will be committed and cannot be undone.

Unable to Restore System Backups due to access to SharePoint CA

3

Projects Server Administrators are not able to restore system backups of projects as they do not have access rights to SharePoint Central Administration portal. They are reliant on SharePoint Administrators.

Unable to setup different/specific backup retention policies per project or by EPT

4

The out-of-box backup functionality is restricted to only one retention policy that applies to all the projects in the PWA instance.

Issue with keeping multiple project file copies for what-if-analysis

5

Keeping project file copies externally, outside of the server, and then re-importing causes issues with data corruption, project site integration, cross-project dependencies.
