Time flies! One of my most popular posts over the years was the article on how to build a PMO portal in SharePoint I wrote in 2017. This is not surprising since many organizations use SharePoint for project management.
But, as with life, things change, and that post is outdated by modern standards and best practices. So by popular demand from my loyal blog followers, I would like to document the high-level steps necessary for creating the PMO/Project Management Portal in Modern SharePoint Online.
What prompted the change
- Pretty much everything.
- When I wrote that post back in 2017, I based it on SharePoint classic version, which was the version of SharePoint we had back then. Now we have Modern SharePoint, which looks completely different
- SharePoint classic relied on the subsite architecture, which we no longer use. With modern SharePoint, it is all about Hub Sites
- I mainly relied on SharePoint capabilities for task management and other Project management artifacts. With modern SharePoint, this functionality was shifted to Teams, Planner, and other applications.
- So long story short, this blog post urgently required a refresh, which is what you are reading right now.
