There are two different adjusting screws to administer the project web app:
1) Within the respective instance you can change the site settings and pwa settings for a single site or site collection (if the prerequisites in Office 365 are done).
2) In the SharePoint Admin Center you can not only create and delete site collections, several PWA options in Project Online are also transferred to Office 365. Sounds a little bit like it was done in the Central Administration with an on-premise system, right? However, among other things in the SharePoint Admin Center you can change the permission mode, define quotas and control who’s able to see and edit the site collection settings in the PWA.
At first I thought it is a bug, but I was wrong with that: Since recently, 9999 PWA instances are available for each Project Online tenant. Admins will no longer start to sweat with an annoying limit of 7 PWA instances in the back. Definitely this extends possible scenarios in a lot of areas, e.g. security, trainings and testing.by
Since yesterday the ProjToolV2 is available. It works with CSOM and you can do various bulk actions like deleting objects, creating projects and creating resources.

Here you will get an overview about the different functions of the tool.by
