Importing Gantt project file to Sharepoint

I’m new in using MS Sharepoint 2010 Server and currently running some tests for company use. I want to import a MS Project file (a Gantt diagram with file extension .mpp). Is it possible to do this by integrating the Sharepoint Server with a Project Server or by recreating each activity in the website?

Pink Gregory,

Hello,

Instead of opting for a separate project server, this can be done very easily by synchronization with the SharePoint server.

The procedure is very simple.

The Project Manager, can do this by:

1-      Click on file, on the drop down menu select “Save & send-Sync with task list

2-      Fill out the required fields, and then click on sync.

Your project file is sync and published on the SharePoint server.

 Hello Pink Gregory,

Yes it is possible to import a MS Project file (a Gantt diagram with file extension .mpp) integrating with the MS SharePoint 2010 Server. Just follow the steps:

1.   Keep your MS Project file which has extension .mpp to a document library.

2.   Now you have to import your project file as a custom list .Here you can use excel file as a via.

3.   Work with your MS project server

4.   To show your necessary information you can use a dashboard.

You may have to touch a third party tool such as Project publisher.

Thank you.

Hi Pink Gregory,

The problem with sharepoint is that you can only export files with .xls (excel files) extension in it. So without the help of any third party tools, it is not possible to do it. You can try to import the file as an image. The usual “Ctrl->PrtScn” button will help you in this matter. Additionally, you can convert the file into a .pdf file & then easily attach it into the sharepoint. You can always use the “document” folder as mentioned above.

Hope this helps.
