Thank you for your feedback. For now, you can use an API through Powershell to import .mpp files in Project for the web. You can learn more here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/project-blog/import-project-desktop-files-to-project-for-the-web-api/ba-p/2031298
We are also looking into other ways to support import. Stay tuned for future updates.

YES! I got Project Web specifically to be able to read existing mpp files on my remote station, so it is immensely frustrating that this isn't an option. Why would the only option be to manually replicate the data?
