I would like to create a list in PWA so that I can have users fill in the information that I need in order to create a new Project. I don't see how to create a new list that is not attached to a project. Any ideas? This seems quite basic. Is this documented somewhere? I could not find on technet.

Following instructions from the Project online.

  • Go to the project online root site.
  • Go to the site contents from the gear icon.
  • You will find a '+ New' option to create a List/Library/App/Subsite.
  • The 'List' option used to create a new list.

Make sure you have at least Edit rights on the site.

Let me know if I am out of your questions.

  • He wants to create a list to collect project details before project creation which is not related to projects. – Venkat Konjeti Aug 2 '17 at 12:49

You have mentioned in your question

I would like to create a list in PWA so that I can have users fill in the information that I need in order to create a new Project.

So it's not just a direct custom list, you need + one trick that is "Create Projects Option" as I mentioned below,

  • At any site below the PWA root site, Click on the Site Setting icon,
  • Select add a new APP.
  • Create a custom list with at least the mandatory fields of Project custom fields.
  • Add a new item to your list, select your Item.
  • From the above ribbon, at Item tab, click on the Create Projects

enter image description here

  • Map your list field with your project field in order to create a new Project from list item
