I am a site owner of a SharePoint Sever 2013 SharePoint site. I have all permissions except for: Create Subsites and Use Self-Service Site Creation. I am not a site collection administrator.

I want to start using the Project Summary web part so I've turned on the SharePoint Server Enterprise Site features Site Feature via Site Settings > Manage site features. On the main page of the site, the Project Summary web part was automatically inserted, but I didn't want it there, I wanted it on another page.

**** Edit The Project Functionality site feature is also turned on. ****

I deleted the one on the main page and went to to the other and completed the following steps:

  • edited the page
  • Insert > Web Part
  • navigated to Content Rollup
  • project summary web part is not there.

enter image description here

As far as I know, I have everything enabled that I should have to have the web part available.

Is there something I'm missing?

You have to activate Project Functionality feature too at Manage Site feature to use Project Summary Web Part.

So navigate to Manage Site Features >> Project Functionality >> Activate

And you are done.

  • Thanks for that, I already had it turned on. Turning it on and off will place the Project Summary web part on and off the main page for a site, but I still can't see the web part to be added to a different page. – Erica Van Uitregt Jan 5 '17 at 22:45
  • I have done the same thing and I am able to add the project summary web part at any page. It seems that I have to dig more into your issue. – Trimantra Software Solution Jan 6 '17 at 4:46

I think I've found the answer. I didn't read the web pages as thoroughly as I should have. The project summary web part that is addable to pages is only available in SharePoint project sites and not team sites. The project summary is still available on team site home pages, but is not addable to any other pages on a team site.
