Setting the Enterprise Project Version

When a project is published to the project server, it is defined with a particular project version. By default, the version is published. The version is appended to the project name as a second filename extension, for example, Design.mpp.published. The version, which must be selected when a new project is published or imported to the project server, specifies all the projects that are a member of a given portfolio of projects.

Users can compare and analyze all projects in a given version. They can also compare the same project in different versions, particularly useful for analyzing what-if scenarios.

As the project server administrator, you can create additional versions, as follows:

1 In the Admin page of Project Web Access, click Manage Enterprise Features in the left pane.

2 Under Enterprise Options in the left pane, click Versions. The Versions page appears (see Figure 21-28).

Figure 21-28. Add, modify, or delete a project version using the Versions page. Above the table, click Add Version. In the Version box, type the new version name. In Version Archived, select Yes or No.

In the Gantt Bar Name list, select the Gantt bar you want to use to display information about this project version in views showing multiple project versions. Click the Save Changes button.
