Project Online Tiles Added to MPP

This blog introduced the Modern Productivity Platform (MPP) last September as a live tile framework for SharePoint. Fellow 3Sharp-ie Rudy Dam followed up with a post in November about responsive design in the MPP. Now, the MPP has been integrated with Project Online.

The new ProjectOnlineTasks and ProjectOnlineProjects tile types allow you to display Project Web App (PWA) tasks and projects, respectively, on your live tile pages.

The MPP respects the security model that is set in PWA. Thus, tasks and projects can be viewed in the live tiles only if the current user has the appropriate level of permissions. Then, that user can click individual task/project links in the tiles to navigate to the corresponding details pages in PWA.
