Office 365 ribbon : change Project link redirection behavior
Scenario for a multinational company with several business entities with only 1 Office 365 tenant.
Scenario : 2 PWA instances for 2 business entities
- Instance "I1" (Default PWA instance on the tenant) with Admin "A1"
- Instance "I2" (additional PWA instance created following article https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Set-up-another-Project-Online-site-d44b5a70-3df3-417e-bad8-3021e3a4c896) with Admin "A2"
- Users from I1 have no access to I2 (and vice-versa).
When connected on any PWA instance (I1 or I2), end-users have a Project link in the Office 365 ribbon. The Project link is always pointing to the DEFAULT PWA instance home page (in our scenario : I1 home page).
So, if a user is connected on I2 and clicks on the Project link, he will be redirected to I1, resulting in a Denied Access page (with a access request form).
Note : if the user requests access to I1, A1 will receive the access request.
In a multinational company scenario, with multiple business entities and thousands of users, all Project Online users will have the Project link in the Office 365 ribbon and should try to click on it (so trying to access the Default PWA instance for which they have no access to).
Note : the admins for the Default PWA instance will also receive all access requests.
An expected behavior should be that Project link in the Office 365 ribbon is redirecting to the CURRENT PWA instance home page, and not the DEFAULT PWA instance home page.
We have a new default experience that we call Project Home that you can access through the Project tile. Project Home allows you to see all of your recent/favorite projects across different PWA instances through the click of the Project tile.
As always, thank you for your feedback. As any additional feedback comes up through this area, please share them with us through Uservoice under /Project Home.
We are expecting the project tile as Star D suggested.
The Project tile in the O365 app launcher function work like the SharePoint Online tile in the O365 app launcher
while click on Project tile it should redirect to the same PWA site which i am working
Star D. commented
The Project tile in the O365 app launcher **SHOULD** function like the SharePoint Online tile in the O365 app launcher:
It would bring up PWA sites and sort them into "followed", "frequent" "suggested" and "all", just like the SPO tile does.
