Excellent guide to all things Project Online
Posted by S. Sanderlin on June 27, 2016

Simply put, this is an excellent guide for any administrator, regardless of experience level. Administrators new and old will appreciate the thorough explanations and detailed walkthrough of every aspect of Project Online. Very well-written and extremely detailed, packed full of tips, tricks, suggestions, and even warnings about potential problem areas. The authors clearly have extensive experience with the platform. The addition of the full-color screenshots really adds a great deal of depth to the reading experience and makes everything much easier to follow. It’s worth noting that much of the content can be applied to modern versions of Project Server, not just Project Online.

The promise of ongoing content updates in the form of electronic addendums adds exceptional value and speaks to Sensei’s commitment to long-term customer satisfaction. I would recommend this guide to any customer or implementer looking to gain an understanding of how to implement and administer Project Online or simply looking to supplement their existing knowledge.

Excellent Resource for Implementing, Configuring and Managing Project Online
Posted by Glen Sabatier on August 4, 2016

We implemented Project Online over a year ago and there were very few resources available to guide us through the implementation and configuration. It is different than Project Server but all the books then, and now, are still focused Project Server. I've found this new resource very helpful in developing and training an administrator for Project Online. It's been very useful in guiding us through what we need to change, maintenance procedures we should follow and some best practices to make the most of the system.
