Add or remove Project Web App Web Parts for a site in the Project Web App site collection (Project Server 2010)

Project Server 2010

Published: October 21, 2010

You can add or remove a Microsoft Project Web App Web Part from a Web site that resides in the same site collection as the Project Web App (PWA) instance. For sites that are in the same site collection as the Project Web App instance, the Project Web App Web Parts are readily available for you to add from the Web Part Gallery.

If you want to add a Project Web App Web Part to a site that is not in the Project Web App site collection, you must import the PWA Web Parts into the Web Part Gallery for the site. For more information about how to add a PWA Web Part to a site not in the PWA site collection, see Add Project Web App Web Parts to a site not within the Project Web App site collection (Project Server 2010).

Requirements to add or remove a Project Web App Web Part from a Web Parts page

There are two requirements for a user to add a Web Part to a Web Parts page:

  • You must have at least SharePoint "Design" permissions to the page.

    note Note:

    The SharePoint "Design" permission is not required to add a Web Part when you are personalizing pages that are viewable only by you.

  • You must have a supported browser. Project Web App requires Windows Internet Explorer 7 or 8.

    note Note:

    Ensure that all Project Web App users are using supported browsers. Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 supports additional browsers that are not supported by Project Web App. For more information, see Plan browser support (Project Server 2010).

Add a Project Web App Web Part to a page

When you are adding a Project Web App Web Part to a page in a Web site that resides in the same site collection as Project Web App, it can be added through the user interface in the following ways:

To add a Project Web App Web Part to a page

  1. On the Web page, click the Site Actions menu, and then click Edit Page.

    The page appears in Edit Mode. In Edit mode, the Web Parts page for the site lets you add Web Parts to different areas on the page (Header, Left, Middle, Right, and Footer).

  2. Click Add a Web Part in the location in which you want to add the Web Part.

  3. On the Browse server ribbon, in the Category list, select Project Web Access. Web Parts that are contained in the Project Web Access category appear in the Web Parts list.

  4. Select the Web Part that you want to add to the site and then click Add.

    When you select a Web Part, a brief description of it appears in the About Web Part section.

  5. The page appears with the added Web Part, but is still in Edit Mode. When you are finished adding Web Parts to the page, click the Page tab to display the Page server ribbon, and then click Stop Editing.

Or, you can add a Web Part to a Web Parts page by using the Insert server ribbon.

To add a Web Part to a page by using the Insert server ribbon

  1. On the Web page, click the Site Actions menu, and then click Edit Page.

    The page appears in Edit Mode.

  2. Click the Page tab, and then click Insert to display the Insert server ribbon. Click Web Part.

  3. In the Category list, select Project Web Access. Web Parts that are contained in the Project Web Access category appear in the Web Parts list.

  4. Select the Web Part that you want to add to the site.

    A brief description of that Web Part appears in the About Web Part section.

  5. In the About Web Part section, specify a location by using the Add Web Part to control. Choose a location from that drop-down list, and then click Add.

    The page then appears with the added Web Part, but it is still in Edit Mode.

  6. When you are finished adding Web Parts to the page, click the Page tab to display the Page server ribbon, and then click Stop Editing.

Remove a Project Web App Web Part from a page

The procedure for removing a PWA Web Part from a page is the same for a site in the PWA site collection or a site not in the PWA site collection.

To remove a Web Part from a page

  1. On the Web page, click the Site Actions menu, and then click Edit Page.

    The page appears in Edit Mode.

  2. Select the Web Part that you want to remove, click the Web Part menu (which is the downward pointing arrow next to the check box in the upper-right corner of the Web Part), and then click Delete.

  3. In the Message from Web Part dialog box, click OK to confirm that you want to delete the Web Part.

    The page appears with the Web Part removed, but it is still in Edit Mode.

  4. Click the Page tab to display the Page server ribbon, and then click Stop Editing.
