The Website does not exists or is not configured for Project Server

Today I came across a very annoying problem in Project Server 2010.
I have had many problems creating workspaces because the workspace template was corrupt and I could not create a new template before I had a site to create it from.

Therefore, instead of creating it through the project creation process I decided to create one through SharePoint->Sites and Workspaces.


After the site was created, I copied the URL and I tried to connect it to a project through Server Settings->Project Sites.


Edit Site Adress


Now I enter the URL I copied from the site just created and click Test URL. The page loads and everything seems fine. However, after clicking OK the following error comes up.

"The Web site does not exists or is not configured for Project Server. Enter a Web site that has been extended with a Project Server compatible template".


Now the first thing I start to investigate is what is wrong with the site. Am I missing a feature/webpart or…
After some retrying, I find that the site is actually fine. It is Project Server that doesn't understand the URL.
The URL must not contain any HTML escape characters or any leading or trailing slashes.
Invalid formats
 - /PWA/Test%20Template%20Site/
 - PWA/Test%20Template%20Site
 - /PWA/Test Template Site/
Valid format
 - PWA/Test Template Site


Language specific characters must also be written in the Unicode format (Danish æ,ø,å).

Sharepoint 2013 - Fullscreen mode/hide quick launch

If you want to hide the quick launch on a SharePoint page or web part page in 2013 you could of cause use CSS scripts as in 2010.
But as a new thing in 2013 the user have the possibility to click on full screen mode. so why not load your page in this mode and then the user can choose to exit the mode if he prefers.

Add a content editor webpart to your page and click on Edit HTML from the ribbon.
Add the following code:

<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload = function()
{
  SetFullScreenMode(true);
}
</script>

Install DLL in GAC - Windows 2008/2012 (Using Powershell, No GacUtil.exe)

If you want to install a DLL in the GAC and do not have the GACUtil.exe available. Powershell is properly the easiest way to procede.

Before Powershell you would properly just drag the DLL file into the C:\Windows\Assembly but this option is usually not available anymore.

Powershell - Add DLL to GAC So to install a DLL file in the GAC simply execute the below Powershell script. Remember you migth want to run the Powershell prompt as an administrator.
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load("System.EnterpriseServices, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a")$publish=New-ObjectSystem.EnterpriseServices.Internal.Publish$publish.GacInstall("c:\temp\MyDllFile.dll")iisreset
The first line adds a reference to the assembly we need to be able to mange the GAC.
The second and third lines retrives the GAC object and publish a new DLL file to it.
The last line resets the Internet Information Services. This is only needed if your DLL file is used in a websi…

Reporting on Microsoft Planner or Microsoft Staffhub!

Reporting on Planner or StaffHub!


For a long time I have been waiting for the reporting API for Planner and Staffhub. Today I got tired of waiting and found another way to do it.

I manage to create a PowerBI report based on all the planner plans I have access to and the same method will work for Staffhub and properly many other services such as Microsoft Tasks, Microsoft Forms, etc. 


How?Easy, but requires some Azure, Flow and PowerBI knowledge. These are the steps to I used: 1.Create an Azure Blob to hold the data 2.Create a Flow to save Planner data in the Blob 3.Access the Blob from PowerBI Azure – Blob!So first, lets create a Blob. No, not that kind of Blob. Access the Azure portal - https://portal.azure.com/ Select New and search for “storage account” Fill out the form and click create. I kept all settings to their default Access the new storage and locate/copy the Storage Account Name and Access Key – you will need this for connections to Flow and PowerBI. Next let’s create a Blob Container an…
