How to enable Project Moca – Your new productivity app

Project Moca is a new concept for a productivity app from Microsoft that is in public preview since August, if you are curious about it have a look how you can easily enable it on your tenant.

On Microsoft own words, with Project Moca you can simplify your workflow so you can focus on what matters. Add tasks, goals, notes, files from OneDrive and other cloud storage providers, links, contacts, and even emails and events, all into one dynamic space. Each space has a flexible canvas so you can customize and view your content your way.

Project Moca preview is integrated in the Outlook version for web and must be enabled using PowerShell. If you are an admin on your tenant and want to give it a try do the following:

  1. Open the PowerShell console
  2. Execute the script below and update the address value
    Import-Module ExchangeOnlineManagement
    Connect-ExchangeOnline -UserPrincipalName
    Set-OwaMailboxPolicy OwaMailboxPolicy-Default -ProjectMocaEnabled $true

    project moca

  3. Wait a couple hours for it to get it enabled
  4. Once enabled click on the Project Moca icon in the Outlook web
  5. Alternatively you can access to Project Moca directly by using the following url if you see a message saying Under Construction it means it is not enabled yet
    project moca

While you are waiting for it to be enabled have a look to the following Video about Project which has a great resume of all the main features.

      Hi Meryem,

      It’s still working, I’ve just tested it.
      It may take a little to get the feature enabled on your tenant. Try to access to it directly using this URL

      Hope it helps, have a nice day 🙂

    After typing Set-OwaMailboxPolicy OwaMailboxPolicy-Default -ProjectMocaEnabled $true and hit enter, it says:
    Set-OwaMailboxPolicy : The term ‘Set-OwaMailboxPolicy’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script
    file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct
    and try again.

    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException
    Can you help me with this?

      Have you got any error when you did the import of the PowerShell module?
      Please make sure you are able to connect to exchange, this usually means that a connection was not established.
      You can read more about the PowerShell module here.

      Hope this helps, have a nice day 🙂

    Good morning.

    Before implementing I would need to know, how can I enable Project Moca only to some users, it should not appear for all Office365 tenant Outlook users.

    It can be added as a plugin in Office365.?

      Hi Juan,

      Unfortunately for this feature still in preview it is all or nothing for all the users, if there is something that allows you to enable per user based I’m not aware of it.

      Have a nice day 🙂
