I have a free onedrive account (via Hotmail account) that I use for word, excel type of documents. I now have a need to create a Microsoft project document (with gantt chart) but when I click on New menu item, there is no option to create a Microsoft project file. Below are the only options I get.

enter image description here

Could there be anyway of using Microsoft project from my free onedrive account?

  • I think it would be wiser to consult Microsoft's documentation than PM:SE on this issue. Is Project included in the Microsoft's service offering? – Mark C. Wallace Oct 30 '15 at 11:21
  • Doesn't seem like that's the case. But I am hoping there may be some extension or something – BKS Oct 30 '15 at 15:00

No sorry. The choices in the "new" are driven by the online versions of Word, Excel, PPT, and OneNote. Do you have project pro for office 365 added to your Office 365 subscription?

  • Nops I don't have office 365 subscription. I am looking for any free solution. Is that available for free? – BKS Nov 3 '15 at 1:09
  • No sorry. There is no version of Project that is available for free. – JulieS Nov 3 '15 at 23:24
