Project Online – Performance Improvements related to Create & Publish operations

New changes are being rolled out as of 1st Oct 2018

How does this affect me?

After these changes takes place, your users will be able to: - Change the way After events are handled in Project Online with Asynchronous After Event Handling. Project detail pages will load more quickly if they use add-ins that rely on After events. Work with the developer of your add-ins to see if you can benefit from this change. If so, enable the new “Turn on Asynchronous After event processing” setting available in the Additional Server Settings page of your Project Online administration panel. - Get back to work quickly during a Publish Job. We are changing the way the Publish function works in Project Online. Now, when a Publish job is started (either by the user pressing ‘Publish’ or a Project Detail Page triggering it), the user will be able to get back to work quickly. - Start projects sooner with shorter wait times in the Project Create feature. We’ve moved the ‘Create Summary Resource Assignment’ task to a separate queue job. These feature changes are rolling out now and the rollout is anticipated to be complete by mid-October.

What do I need to do to prepare for these changes?

You don’t need to do anything to prepare for these changes. Microsoft is gradually starting to roll these changes out now.
