Customizing the Project Server database to meet your organization's needs is a task that initially requires a person with project management background and a person with information technology background. Some of the customization tasks are performed in Project Professional, and the rest are performed in Project Web Access. Once the database is set up, the Project Server administrator's role becomes mostly occasional maintenance.

In this chapter, you completed tasks that were needed to customize the Project Server database to meet the needs of your organization. Specifically, you did the following:

♦ Double-checked settings

♦ Set up the Enterprise Global template

♦ Set up the Enterprise Resource Pool

♦ Imported projects into the Project Server database

♦ Customized Project Web Access

♦ Reviewed housekeeping tasks

In Chapter 20, you see how the Project/Resource Manager works with Project

Professional and Project Web Access.
