Logging On

To log on to Project Web Access, follow these steps: 1 Start up Internet Explorer (version 5.01 with Service Pack 3, or later).

Internet Explorer 5.0 or later is required, while Internet Explorer 5.5 or later is recommended.

2 In the Address box, enter the URL for your organization's project server and then click Go.

Your project manager or project server administrator provides you with the URL you need. Enter the URL exactly as provided, including any case sensitivity. The Project Web Access logon page appears (see Figure 23-1).

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 are logged in as soon as you enter the Web address.

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.

Tip Add Project Web Access as a favorite

Because Project Web Access is your "command center" for project activities, it's a great idea to 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.

Your Project Web Access Home page appears (see Figure 23-2).

In the side pane of the Home page, click Change Password. Follow the instructions in the page that appears.
