  Arrange Windows Side by Side Widget

In Microsoft Project, there is a function located under the Windows menu called "Arrange All". If you have two projects open, the standard "Arrange All" function will display one project stacked on top of the other project. More...
  Rollup...Rollup Milestone Dates to the Project Center

An important part of a project manager's job is to manage the dates for milestones and other key tasks in a project. The dates for these key tasks are monitored very closely by executives in an organization, and Project Web Access is an excellent tool to keep the management team informed about these tasks in your project.

Baby, You Can Drive My Start

Have you ever had to manage a project where the start date for the project was driven by a task other than the first task in the schedule?

In most cases, you set the start date for your project by entering the desired date in the Project Information dialog box. The first task in your plan would begin on the Project Start date specified, and all other tasks would be scheduled based upon their dependencies and constraints. Click here to read more...





Rollup...Rollup Milestone Dates to the Project Center

An important part of a project manager's job is to manage the dates for milestones and other key tasks in a project. The dates for these key tasks are monitored very closely by executives in an organization, and Project Web Access is an excellent tool to keep the management team informed about these tasks in your project.

The Project Center in Project Web Access allows you to create dashboard views to display high-level information about your project. However, in order to see detailed information about milestones and other key tasks, a user needs to "drill-down" from the Project Center to get the project details.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to display the dates for key tasks and milestones in your project directly in the Project Center, without requiring executives to have to drill down to get to the details for your project? This article describes a step by step approach for how you can display the dates for these important tasks in a Project Center view, eliminating the need to drill-down into a project to get to the details. We will use the template "MSF Application Development" that is included with Microsoft Project as the basis for this example. Click here to read more...



Got To Get You Into My List

If you have ever worked with custom fields in Microsoft Project, you are probably familiar with the concept of a "value list". Value lists are particularly useful for restricting the allowable values for a custom text field.

One of the challenges of administering value lists is getting the list populated in an easy manner. Although it is possible to copy one value at a time to a value list, Microsoft Project doesn't provide the capability to copy an entire value list in one easy step. Similarly, you may also have the need to copy an entire value list out of Microsoft Project for use in a document or spreadsheet. Again, there is no way to grab the entire list in one step.
