    I mean the Microsoft project professional templates. The Microsoft project ask you when you create new file in it. There are options such as blank project, software development etc. Then pre-existing entries are already created in it. Nov 25, 2016 at 16:03

Based on your question ,

  • You opened Microsoft Project > connect to server select the blank project template and in this case, you can find the Publish button.

  • But if you have selected another template like commercial ...etc , you can't find the Publish button.

This is because The selected templated is not saved to project server

So if you need to use another template you should first publish it to project server as EnterPrise template by doing the following :

  • Open Microsoft Project.
  • At login > at Profile > select the URL of Project Server, not computer.
  • Now Select your favorite template like software development.
  • From File Menu > click Save as.
  • In Save > in type > select template.

enter image description here

  • Now close , and open Microsoft Project again, and select from Enterprise tab your project template that you have already saved.

enter image description here

  • Now you will see the publish button activated.
