Log on to Project Web App

If your organization has Project Web App accounts, you can connect to them from two places:

  • Project Professional 2013
  • A web browser
What do you want to do?


Log on from Project Professional

If you already have a Project Web App account, just start Project Professional 2013 and you’ll be connected or prompted for your user name and password.

Before you start

With Project Professional 2013, you can connect to Project Web App for Microsoft Project Server 2013, but you can’t connect to older versions.

Each organization’s project management setup is different. If you’re missing information like the name of the server, or if you still can’t connect after following these steps, talk to your system administrator
