Microsoft Project: Top Integrations & Their Business Impact

As a component of Microsoft 365, Project can easily integrate with Teams and Power BI to optimize productivity processes and results.

Teams Integration

Microsoft Project integrates with Teams to enhance collaboration via chats, video conferencing, file storing and sharing, etc. It also enables team members to simultaneously edit tasks and enhance productivity with an automated scheduling engine informed by user effort, task duration, and other available resources.

Power BI Integration

Since it is built on the Microsoft Power Platform on Azure, Project can connect to Power apps and services to help you configure desktop and mobile experiences that meet the specific needs and goals of your team.

Use Project Power BI templates to import and analyze data from Project for the web and Project Online into Power BI. The web template connects you to the Common Data Service (CDS) instance in Dynamics 365, which is where Project for the web data is stored and where to connect to the Project Web App tenant in Office 365 (O365).
