PolicyPak for Microsoft Project

Microsoft Project 2013 makes managing even the most daunting of projects a good bit easier, unless of course your Project Manager has completely messed up the configuration settings for this application.

Your projects have a deadline, and you can’t afford for your project team to waste time talking with the helpdesk because their applications aren’t operating as expected.

That’s where PolicyPak comes in.  We enforce the optimum setting values that you, the administrator, want them to have.  PolicyPak sets and enforces expectations for your users’ applications, so that they get the same experience, every time they launch it.

Keep your Microsoft Project 2013 configuration settings delivered, enforced and automatically remediated with PolicyPak.  Here’s a video to see how it’s done:

Our PolicyPak software snaps-in to the Group Policy Editor and gives you the same user interface as Microsoft Project 2013 itself.  You know your users can forget to save their work periodically, and when their computer fails, who do they call to magically make their files come back?  You of course.  You can use PolicyPak to set the “Auto save every” setting for whatever duration you think will benefit your users so that their files are always preserved.

Like similar applications, Microsoft Project 2013 is smart enough to alert the user about common errors that may affect the task at hand.  These alerts only work though if they are configured incorrectly however. Use PolicyPak to set “Show add-in user interface errors” in the “Advanced” tab.

Like other Microsoft Office 2013 suite applications, Microsoft Project has numerous “Trust Center” settings.  Use Policy Pak to turn off “Sign up for customer experience program.” so that your customers always see these security related settings configured correctly on their desktops such as “Prompt when loading files with legacy or non-default file format” on the “Legacy Formats” tab.

Use Policy Pak so that your users always see these security related settings configured correctly on their desktops such.


With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.

It’s all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer.
