Microsoft Project is a project management tool for complex projects with dependencies.

Microsoft Project is not part of Evergreen's standard license set. Microsoft Planner and/or Tasks is a great alternative and is part of our standard M365 license set and can be used effectively to manage many projects.

Does your project require Microsoft Project?

To understand the best tool for task/project management see: When to use Microsoft Project, Planner, To-Do or the Tasks app in Teams

  1. Is this a solo project or a team project?
    • Solo projects should make use of Microsoft Tasks or Planner.
  2. Are there few deliverables and dependencies, or many?
    • Projects that do not have many dependencies or deliverables should use Microsoft Planner.
  3. Do you understand that you will need to purchase a Project license for all Team members that need to update tasks assigned?
    • You can however give View access to any Evergreen community member without requiring they purchase an additional Project license
  4. Are you a member of a Microsoft Project where you've been assigned tasks to edit/update?

If after reviewing this info it seems clear that you need Project, please submit a New Technology Request but keep in mind you will need to purchase a Project license for all Team members that need to update tasks assigned.
