Signing up for Project Online is a simple process, but the steps are different depending on whether you already have an Office 365 account.
|I DO have an Office 365 account.
||I DON’T have an Office 365 account.
You may be able to simply add Project Online to that account.
To add Project Online to your existing Office 365 account:
- Log into your Office 365 account.
- On the Office 365 admin center, click Purchase Services on the left menu.
- Click Add next to the Project Online plan that you prefer, and follow the on-screen instructions.
Note If you are using a trial version and want to pay for a subscription, click Buy Now.
Start from scratch! Learn more about Project Online and get signed up.
Do I have the right kind of Office 365 account?
If you already subscribe to another Microsoft service, such as SharePoint Online, then you already have an Office 365 account. If you are using Office 365 Enterprise or Academic, you may be able to simply add Project Online to that account.
To check, go to the Purchase Services page in your Office 365 tenant administration portal.
|Don’t see Project Online listed?
This could be for one, or both, of the following reasons:
- Your account isn’t Office 365 Enterprise or Academic. These are the only subscription levels that currently support Project Online.
After signing up, be patient!
It takes a while for Project Online to finish getting set up. Go have a cup of coffee or catch up on email. Setup will generally be done within 30 minutes to an hour, but it can sometimes take longer (or shorter!). Don’t panic if yours is taking longer!
When you come back to check on setup, refresh the page. If you see Project listed on the menu bar, you’re ready to go!
Tip Need more than one Project Online site? You can have up to three separate Project Online sites.
