Lesson 7: Save Project Plan

Now that you finished creating the schedule of your project, you can save it on your desired destination location to be permanently stored. Later on, if you change your mind and decide that further additions or changes in the project plan may be required, you can open it and perform the necessary changes and save it again.

​With Project Plan 365 you can save your project plan either on your local device (Computer) or in a cloud location (SharePoint Online, Box, OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive and BaseCamp).

Under the File menu, there are two options related with saving: Save and Save As.​

Using the Save option you can save the current file, in the current format.

You can use this option only if the file is associated with a location on Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, OneDrive or SharePoint. Use Save As option instead.

The Save option can be accessed from the File Menu (File → Save).

Project Plan 365 allows you to save MPP files on Computer. You may save the MPP files by performing the following steps:

  1. Go to the File menu, then click Save As and choose Computer option
  2. If this is the first time that you are saving the project, type a name for it in the File name box
  3. Click Save, then select Save or Save as to select a location to save the file

You can also save your project plan on a cloud location, using the Save As option under File menu.

  1. First you will need to sign in with your account for that cloud. This step will be skipped automatically if the user is already authenticated
  2. Permit to the Project Plan 365 application to connect to the required services
  3. Type a name for it in the File name box, and press Save
