Microsoft Project Server 2013 is a flexible on premise solution for Project Managers, PMOs & team members in project planning, project tracking and managing portfolio; but it is only accessible via a PC or a laptop. Staying connected with the project is an all-time need for project team.

Considering this challenge, Advaiya has developed QuickProject project management app that provides a mobile interface to help project managers and team stay connected with Microsoft Project Server 2013. It has an easy and user-friendly interface which helps to track and update assignments anywhere and anytime.

We have talked a lot about the key functionalities of the project management app in these blogs:

Update timesheets on the go with QuickProject      

Let’s discuss on how you can implement this app.


To get started with this app for your organization, as administrator, you need to ensure:
– You provide acces rights to Project Server 2013 onpremise or online (whichever you have) to the users for whom you want to configure the app
– You also need to ensure that you enable the Access Project Server Reporting Service & Status Broker Permission permissions for these users.

To enable ‘Access Project Server Reporting Service’ permission, follow these steps: –
1. Click on PWA/server settings
2. Select ‘Manage Groups’ under security section
3. Select group name
4. In Global Permissions, Under General section, check the check box for Access Project Server Reporting service.

To enable ‘Status Broker Permission’, follow these steps –
1. Click on PWA/server settings
2. Select ‘Manage Groups’ under security section
3. Select group name
4. In Global Permissions, Under Time & Task Management section, check the check box for Status Broker Permission.

The app works for both Project server 2013 (on-premise) as well as online accounts. If the app is configured with ‘Project server online’ PWA URL, the user will not be able to update assignment(s) and access timesheet to save and submit.

If the app is configured with Project Server 2013 (on-premise), user can update assignments and also save and submit the timesheet.


The quick link of QuickProject app on iTunes is available here. Some minutes spent on this app, will definitely let the user understand its ease of use and benefits.

So, what are you waiting for, enable the quick configuration for your organization and get the Project access on your mobile :)
