Integration for Microsoft Project
Enable integration with Microsoft Project to see a project timeline, work breakdown, schedule, and dependencies. Additionally, teams could provide notifications to members about dates in the project.
The team is still reviewing this item. I hope to know of a decision soon.
Interesting as I have a colleague who can currently edit Projects through Team and SharePoint but I don't have the capability. It's available.
I am very interested in this capability. I have been doing project/program/portfolio management for over 20 years. For complex projects/programs, nothing beats MS Project.

It might be a good Microsoft Enterprise practice to design in integration of all Microsoft Products within Microsoft Apps out of the box rather than making user ask and wait for them. It make me crazy to know that this is not the standard
Great idea, would be really useful having an MS Project integration with Teams.
Hopefully this would allow Teams to be populated from MS Project, and MS Project to be updated/sync'd in reverse from Teams, e.g. progress/completion.

Our clients want this now, please.
Still interested in this, please let us know if there's any updates. Thanks!
As a minimum the option to open it in a view mode within or outside the TEAMS screen.
Next minimum open the native program. User should have it installed in this case.
Any update on this integration

At the very least have a viewer within teams as you do with other file formats.
We want to use MS Teams, but we also use MS project and would LOVE to have it integrate. Microsoft, please move this up on priority!

We were using another software that integrated naturally with MS teams. We are being switched over to MS project online and it doesn't integrate, this seems like a massive over site for Microsoft please move this up on priority!
Brian Buchmeyer commented
Microsoft Teams has tons of integrations with other Project Management Software, you think this would be a natural fit.
Why make a siloed solution? People don't want lots of one off solutions that don't connect and speak to each other, they want everything integrated!
Please update on this!
Hi Warren, September was a while ago. Has the 'team' come back with a decision and a timeframe?
I'm hoping they can spin this up really, really quickly! I sort of sold Teams as the answer thinking that 'Project' would definitely work with Teams only to find out it doesn't!
More fool me!
Please get this working

We've been using teams at our organisation for 3 weeks and we are already finding that Project would be very useful
Martin Poulsen commented
This would really extend the usage of Teams in our organisation if Project Online could be integrated
Please Please Please - I need a way to continue using teams and allowing our leaders to view the Microsoft plan.
An update on this would be excellent. This is a really glaring gap in the store.
what is the update on basic viewing for .mpp files ? do you have a suggested work around until this feature is enabled? writing guidance for a large PMO so would appreciate any updates and/or work arounds.

How was this not one of **the first** MS assets integrated with teams? An AI chat bot? Yeah, we can do that. Allowing your project team to see the overall project plan in MS teams, no, we can't do that. In fact, we're not even working on it. But hey, we have a chat bot, that makes us hip and cool. Stunned at the lack of a practical vision for this tool.
Hoping this issue gets resolved soon - it would be extremely useful. Is there an ETA?
