Fresh from the pens (or keyboards) of our UA team are the following articles. Thanks to Efren, Robert, Mike, Sonia, Jim and David. And the mention of Britney Spears isn’t some cheap trick to get more hits on my site – the podcast actually exists – and for my US readers the date of the article isn’t January 4th…

A couple of postings today over on the Project Support blog – and I split this into two to hopefully avoid confusion. The first looks at the changes in location of Server Settings in Project Server 2013 compared to Project Server 2010 - Project Server 2013- Server Settings. The second takes a similar look – but at the Project Online PWA Settings to see what is available there - Project Online- Server Settings. So if you are wondering where your favorite server settings have gone to – or if they are still available anywhere – head on over and read the posts!
Any questions then post them either here or over on the Project Support blog.
As promised, the first of the Hyper-V documents is out - see http://blogs.technet.com/epmcontent/ for the links.
Great Job, Efren and Robert!
Refreshed after a warm summer vacation in Washington state – and just in case you hadn’t seen it over on the Project Support blog I’ll throw some links out here.
