Tip Add Project Web Access as a favorite

Because you'll be coming to Project Web Access whenever you want a view into your organization's project activities, add the project server URL as a favorite Web site. When the Log On page appears in Internet Explorer, click Favorites, Add To Favorites. Enter a name in the Name box and then click OK.

3 Enter your user name and password and then click Go.

Your user name might be the same as your corporate Windows account that you use to access your corporate network, e-mail, and so on. If your project server administrator set you up to use your Windows account, you just need to enter your Windows account user name. You might or might not need to also enter your Windows account password. Alternatively, your project server administrator might have set you up with a separate Project Server account. In this case, you'll need to enter that user name. Leave the password blank. You'll add a password as soon as you gain access.

Your Project Web Access Home page appears (see Figure 24-2).
