Publish the latest plan and team assignments

When you create an enterprise project (enterprise project: A project that is stored in Project Server to ensure information integrity. To make changes to an enterprise project, users with access permissions are required to check it in and out from Project Server.) and save it to Microsoft Office Project Server, it is not yet available for team members to view and update. The project is only available to you.

To make the project available to your team members, you must publish the project. Publishing a project also publishes its assignments (assignment: A specific resource that is assigned to a particular task.). As your project progresses, you may need to make changes to your tasks and assignments. These changes must be published to make them available to your team members.

  1. On the File menu, click Publish.
  2. If you have made changes to the plan and haven't yet saved them, you will be prompted to do so. Click Yes to save the plan.
  3. If you do not have a workspace site for this project, you can create one now. Project workspace sites provide an easy way for team members and stakeholders to collaborate on the project. To provision a workspace site, select Create a workspace for this project.
  4. Click Publish.


  • Find links to more information about provisioning a workspace site in the See Also section.
  • The collaboration commands and options are not available unless you are connected to Project Server.
  • If you have made changes to your project, but you aren't ready to make the changes available to your team members, you can save the project to Project Server by clicking Save on the File menu. Your changes will only be available to you. You can check the project in to Project Server, and then check it out again later to publish the changes.
