This feature allows individuals and teams to “self manage” situations where key players are out of the loop, for example when people are away at a conference or on vacation. It eliminates the need to request changes by those with Administrative responsibilities for Project Server.
      • Allows resources to “request” delegation
      • Lessens load on the Admins
    • Delegate your project(s)/responsibilities to another user say when you are on leave.
    • Windows PowerShell can be used with Microsoft Project Server 2010 to perform both simple and complex administrative tasks.
    • Centralized administration
  • Scheduling on the Server
