App Review–Fluent Pro’s EPM Pulse for Project Online

EPMPulse LogoAt the Project Conference, Microsoft announced some improvements to the reporting capability of Project Online through the introduction of support for SSIS. However, there is a solution available now that will enable you to create powerful dashboards in Project Online from the guys at Fluent Pro called EPM Pulse for Project Online which you can get going in minutes which is available now in the SharePoint app store.

Example Dashboard

Once installed, EPM Pulse will provision an instance within Fluent Pro’s infrastructure that will be used to render your dashboards, which can take a few moments the first time you install. The EPM Pulse instance reaches into your Project Online tenant  and pulls out the relevant data to render the reports.

EPM Pulse Dashboard Provisioning

The app allows you to create multiple dashboards which can be shared or private and cover different timeframes and projects.

EPM Pulse Dashboards

EPM Pulse allows you to choose from a selection of predefined widgets covering Analytics, Financial, Portfolio, Resources, Risks and Issues & Workflow which you can place on your dashboard and move around using full drag and drop. Each widget is added to the dashboard and is automatically configured to pull in the relevant data, but can be further refined to change the title to something more meaningful for your organisation and the look and feel.

Available Widgets

The authors have done a fantastic job of abstracting away the complexity of configuration, whilst still giving the user a huge range of configuration options to make sure the dashboards show the information your organisation needs. Of course it doesn’t end there, dashboards can also be exported to PDF / PNG, viewed in Full Page mode and also shared with other parties.

Fluent Pro’s EPM Pulse is licenced under a subscription with monthly subscription options for users that design dashboards and users that consume the data within them and can be downloaded from the SharePoint App Store.
