Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Additional Pro features, part of OmniPlan 3 Essential Training.
- There are about three more Pro features in OmniPlan 3…that I want to touch on before we're done.…We're not going to be able to take…any of these features all that far…in the context of this course,…but I want you to know that they're there…and where to start using them if they fit your needs.…In most of the cases here, we're, again,…talking about some version of extensibility.…Extending OmniPlan outside of its interface…in different ways.…So, here's what I'm talking about.…
One is Microsoft Project integration.…So, in the Pro version you can move back and forth…between Microsoft Project, which is the PC version…of very similar software, and OmniPlan Pro.…And the way you do that is you can simply open…the standard Microsoft Project projects…here in OmniPlan Pro and depending on the version…of Microsoft Project you have,…you can also go back in the other direction.…There are some quirks in this process…so if you're planning on doing this a lot,…I would encourage you to check the Manual…because it lists out some little errors and quirks…
