In this article I would like to inform you on a Free Project Site Template available for SharePoint 2010. The template is useful in IT Software Development scenarios where each new project can be assigned a project management site. It provides convenience of:

· Setting Project Goals, Statements & Tasks

· Managing Tasks Assigned

· Dashboard on Project Status (Red, Yellow, Green)

· Microsoft Project integrated

SharePoint Project Template

SharePoint out of the box does not have a Professional Project Site Template. This requirement is is catered through various free project templates available in CodePlex.

Creating a new Project Site Template is a good idea provided the time & resource to develop it.

Which is the Free Project Template?

The project template we are discussing here is named Project Lite created by company named BrightWorks. You can download it from Microsoft PinPoint website.

There are 2 Project Types provided:

1. Project Lite

2. Project Structured

In this example I am showing the Project Lite site template.

Please note that you require Site Owner level permissions for installing this template & creating sites using it.

The installation was simple as it was a Sandboxed Solution. Just download the WSP files & you need to install in the Solutions Gallery.

Summary

In this article we have explored a SharePoint 2010 Project Template. To summarize with:

The project site provides the following features:

1. Project Statement Link which is Editable

2. Project Tasks list

3. Project Documents library

4. Calendar

5. My Work list which shows only current logged in user Tasks

6. Work list which contains all works to different project members

7. Microsoft Project Support

I believe this would be useful one & recommendable to customers. Additionally, there is a paid version of the template which provides much more features. Please ensure you read the licensing agreements before deploying to corporate environments.
