Project Server Budget/Financial Management

Have you ever tried to do budget mangement in Project Server without UMT's financial mangement plugin (UMT 360). This can be a complex task as you do not want a very detailed plan of the financial usage, but rather just track the approved budget from the steering comittee.

UMT 360 can do a lot of cool stuff with your financial data. But if your company are not ready for the full rollout of this module and just want to track if the projects and departments are on track a more simple solution could be the answar.

This is where Projectum's app "Project Financials" come into the picture.

This app simply adds a new area to your project page (PDP) which allows you to save the budget for the Project.


This can then be summed up and catagorized in some nice reports.


Try it out!!

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.

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…

SharePoint 2013/Project Server 2013 - Remove or hide ribbon button

SharePoint/Project Server - Remove or hide ribbon buttonSharePoint and Project Server has a lot of functionality in the ribbon. Sometimes it can be beneficial to hide some of the buttons for the users so they do not get too confused.
The correct way to hide ribbon buttons is to create a SharePoint feature in Visual Studio and create some XML to override the ribbon. However, if you are not that familiar with developing or Visual Studio it can be a prohibitive task to do. If you would like to go with the feature solution here is a link for a nice guide on how to do it: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/office/ff408060(v=office.14).aspx
In this post I will go through how to remove ribbon buttons only through the standard Script Editor webpart and Javascript. However you don’t have to know Javascript to complete the task. The downside of this approach is that your have to add the webpart on all pages where you want to remove the ribbon.
