Project for the Web is not available for Education customers.
Not including Education customers who have A3/5 or Project-specific SKUs for Project for the Web is a big miss. Aside from cost, what are the barriers for switching this on for Education?
Hi everyone – we announced Project for the web being available for EDU a few weeks ago. The plans you’ll need to access it are as follows:
• Project Plan 3 for students
• Project Plan 3 for faculty
• Project Plan 5 for students
• Project Plan 5 for faculty
Hope this helps!

Same as Torbjørn Frantsen here. Anyone find a solution?

We're having issues activating Project for the Web (Roadmap).
I'm a user and I have a project license (P 5), but only classic project (online) available at https://project.microsoft.com/
My administrator today tried to activate roadmap following these instructions:
When accessing the admin-panel, "Project" is not an option for "Settings -> Org. settings". So he is unable to activate Roadmap / Project for the web.
Any ideas why Project is not an option in the admin-panel ?
Can you please let us know if Project Plan 5 without Project Client SKU consists the Roadmap feature as its not visible and Roadmap has been enabled in admin center. And it is available how to enable it as we done it through admin center.
Thank you in advance.
Where I can buy the licenses??
I can't find, e.g., Project Plan 3 for students/faculty in your store.

Is there no cheap "Plan 1" to just cover "Project on the Web" then? Plan 3 and 5 include MS Project which is overkill for a lot of users?
Same here! Have a Microsoft 365 A3 for faculty subscription and accessed the Project for the web page (https://project.microsoft.com/en-US/) only to get the response "Looks like you do not have a license to create a project or roadmap. To get one, contact your Office 365 admin, or find out more about Project." Please can we get an update on when Education customers will be able to access Project for the web, or whether there is a detail that we are missing to be able to gain access. Thank you!
Any update on this? It sounds like as of 4/8 it should be available for edu, but I still am not seeing anything.
I've gone into my 0365 (education tenant) and it's not there. Logged in as Admin and still not there. Am I missing something?
Thank you so much!!!

There are 17 campuses in our school. To plan collaboration, we need a handy tool such as Project for the Web. We look forward to the early appearance of Project for the Web in the EDU

We have a growing need for Project on the Web and users are looking at alternative solutions like Monday.com. Monday has been tested and users are now using it and cannot wait any longer for PotW. Microsoft you are in danger of losing the Education establishments to Monday.com. Have a clear message of when it is going to be available or just make it available now. At lease release to the users that have made comments here. Thank you David.firstname.lastname@example.org
I am the PMO Manager at UW Seattle, teach a PM Essentials class at UW Seattle, teach a PM Certificate class at UW Tacoma, and was the PMO Director at Tacoma Public Schools. In all my interactions, I advocate for use of MS Project (desktop app or O365 online). Thanks for the consideration to include MS Project in education where project success is vital and necessary. Having the right tools is key.

We were doing an pilot with Project Online and the tool seemed to hit most of the marks especially the interaction with Project desktop. All our large programs use MS Project for scheduling. It looks like Project Online is a dead end road so we are starting to evaluate PPM tools from other leading vendors. It would be nice to understand the vision for how shops with large complex MS Project schedules fit into the Microsoft PPM vision. Also not having full access to capabilities for EDU is another reason to move away from Microsoft. It is a shame because we consider them a strategic partner and have invested heavily in many of their technologies.
This would be very helpful to our university!

We would benefit from Roadmap being enabled for our Edu tenant. We have leadership who would benefit from seeing mission-specific project portfolios and how project phases align across the portfolio stack. Roadmap could also show potential resource contention concerns and how those relate to which project timelines within a given portfolio or set of projects within the Roadmap using intermediate milestones (based on phases).
Please make Roadmap available to EDU ASAP. I have a difficult time understanding why this is not already available given it was released 10/2018, This practice will just direct EDU users to other competitive products...

We rely on this as we have a large contingency of Mac users who have no other access to Project
