For whatever reason you want to replace an enterprise custom field name with a nicer custom label, you can do that within the PWA or/and in the Project Client. We’ll check out both options in this post.by
In the first blog post about reporting with OData, we discovered how to get project data with the standard projectdata feed. We used an URL like https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/pwa/_api/projectdata/[en-us] to receive all enterprise custom fields without any filtering. It is a very simple approach to build a list or some graphics, but the performance isn’t good enough for productive environments, especially with time phased data. For this reason some adjustments are necessary, to request just the respective data that you really need in your report. We’ll check out how to do that in this article.by
Within a Project Site on the project server we do have a place to collaborate, file documents, manage tasks/meetings, risks, issues, deliverables and to use the integrated One Note to manage ideas. I faced an issue with the notebook after I customized the project site heavily.

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. Personally, I’ll use it to get demo data in a very quick and uncomplicated way. Brain Smith described already in his blog, how to set it up. Here you will get an overview about the different functions of the tool.by
