To enhance collaboration, Microsoft 365 and Office 365 users with E3 and E5 licenses can now update the task progress, or “% complete”, of a task assigned to them in any project they are part of, without a Project license. 

 

The users need to be part of the Office 365 group of the project to be able to open and update their task progress. 

 

When an E3 or E5 licensed user who is part of the project’s Office 365 group opens the project, they will see the project page as shown below. “Limited Access” will be shown next to the project name to indicate that the user can only update the task progress of the tasks assigned to them.

There are no changes in the experience for users with licenses other than E3 and E5. 

 

FAQ:

Only Microsoft 365 and Office 365 E3 and E5 users can update the “% complete” field for tasks assigned to them, without a Project license. 

 

2. Can an E3 or E5 user update the “% complete” field for tasks assigned to any other project members? 

 

No, they can only update the task progress of tasks assigned to them.
