The second chapter takes on the basics you need to begin using Project 2016. It first discusses the Help section where you can get answers and tutorials for any question that comes up. This chapter also discusses creating a Workspace, using Toolbars, Ribbons, and the Status  Bar.   

Continue on as you learn how to use touch, task basics, and project options. By now you will have become proficient with Project 2016. The chapters that follow lead learners through all the various aspects of managing a project. Discover how to use project consolidation and resource sharing, giving you advanced insight into how to create efficiency with staff and materials.

Each topic is explained with its own professional video that shows you in detail how to properly use the function. Upon completion of this course, you will be an intermediate user of Microsoft Project 2016.

Exercise files, demo files are included.
