Control the default creation location of project online projects


With the new Project Home page, users can see the recently accessed projects across PWA sites and roadmaps. This page has a option to create a new Project with one click. This saves a lot of time as I don’t remember the looong URL.

“We’re changing your default SharePoint admin center experience”. How does this affect project online administration?


On Feb 19, 2019 a new message appeared in message center. It is “We’re changing your default SharePoint admin center experience “.

The SharePoint admin center experience, for Office 365 organizations of 50 or fewer licenses, will default to the new admin center experience.  You can switch back to the classic experience as necessary.

We’ll be gradually rolling this out to Standard Release customers that have 50 or fewer licenses in late March, and we will expand to larger organizations in the coming months. We will provide further notifications when we make the change for additional organizations.

If you are administering PWA site collections, you must know how this will impact you. In the classic SharePoint admin center, you click New > Private Site Collection with Project Web App.


In the new SharePoint admin center, you click Active Sites > Other options. Select the template as Project Web App site, and type the site name, primary administrator details.

Create a group-connected team site, communication site, or other site from the admin center

The new experience is elegant and easy to use.
