ProjectCleaner – Add-in for MS Project to securely share sensitive data in .mpp files

Malmoe, Sweden (March, 2019),

Following the recent release of the most advanced software for “cleaning” project data from XER files, the team behind ScheduleCleanerTM, is proud to announce the launch of ProjectCleaner, an equivalent Microsoft® Project add-in for “cleaning” Microsoft® Project (.mpp) files.

ProjectCleaner is a new add-in for Microsoft® Project that gives project managers the ability to remove or anonymize sensitive information inside .mpp project files, prior to sharing them with different project stakeholders.

Users are able to remove or anonymize the following project categories and data values:

  1. The cost rates for a work resource
    • Standard rate
    • Overtime rate
    • Per use cost
  2. The name of a work resource
  3. The work progress

When “cleaning” the . mpp file, ProjectCleaner creates a copy of the original project file and all modification that are performed to the imported file are saved in a new filtered copy in the .mpp file format.

This approach ensures that the project plan integrity is kept and provides a solution to the major security and privacy concerns when sharing data in the .mpp file format with teams and external project stakeholders.
