What is Microsoft Project? And how can it benefit me? Microsoft Project is designed to assist you in managing your projects. It will help you to see where you are with costs, budgets, and general project information. Once you have input your projects information, Microsoft Project can be of great assistance to help keep track of everything.
Have you used earlier versions of Project? Wonder what's new? This clip is designed to take you thru some of the wonderful new features of Project 2010. You will notice, one of the biggest changes deals with the Ribbon Interface. Task Mode is now able to provide you more flexibility, and adding columns is easier!! Check out these new features as well as some others that will prove to be of value to you, and help you work with the program better.
This clip provides users a quick tour of the environment, showing a closer and more in depth look at such features as the Ribbon, Quick Access Tool Bar, Tabs, Gantt chart options, and Backstage View.
Sometimes a new task can start before another task has fully finished. Or other times a task finishes and we have to wait before the next task can begin. This is Lag and Lead time. How can we adjust our Task Information Dialog Box to help us correct our Lag or Lead time? This clip will give you the answer in just over 2 minutes.
When we need additional information for some tasks, where do we put it? What if there is something unusual in our plan that we need to remember? By just double clicking the task, and using the Notes Tab you have the ability to add notes wherever needed. By taking advantage of this option you will be able to remember additional information about a task, resource, or just about anything.
The Resources Sheet keeps track of all the resources that help get your project completed. What people, materials, and equipment will complete those tasks? How do we enter this information? In just 5 minutes see how to add your resources and help organize the work, material, and costs.
Sometimes our resources aren't on the same time or date schedule as the project. Their availability is not the same as everyone else. What can we do? We can make a Resource Calendar just for them, and mark their availability. In just under 4 minutes, learn how to do this.
How do we know who is completing the tasks that need to be done? How do these tasks get assigned out? Watch this clip and in just over 3 minutes, learn how to:
- Assign out tasks to the correct resource
- Remove or replace a resource as needed
- Assign multiple tasks for one person or
- Assign more than one person the same task
It can be frustrating to constantly reload your resource sheet with all the resources, updating their rates, and having to maintain them in many different places. Imagine being able to enter them in once, and then use them in multiple plans. In this clip you will learn to do just that, by using the Resource Pool Tab.
If you are comparing back to a budget, see how to include the budget into the plan. By using your summary task and resource column you can add the budget work and the budget costs into the project summary task. By doing this you will have the budget numbers readily available to compare with your actuals.
How can you enter 2 days of work, but over a 4 day period? You have to split the tasks, using the Split Tasks Button. What if the editor has a family emergency and has to push back his project half way thru? Learn how to reschedule the part of the task that still needs to be completed by updating your project.
Costs can change mid-project. Maybe a material is costing more than what was planned on, or maybe an employee gets a raise. Project needs to be able to calculate the costs so the budget reports are accurate. See how to adjust what is affected using your Resource Sheet View, and Cost Rate Table.
