Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Set start and end dates, part of OmniPlan 3 Essential Training.
- Now that we're up and running…with our OmniPlan project, I actually want…to backtrack a little bit and talk about some things…that basically go to how a project is configured.…Now a lot of these things you might do at the beginning…when you start a project, but there's no reason…you can't do them later on once a project is in process,…so long as you know what you're doing…and that's what you intend.…So the first thing I want to look at are issues…around scheduling a project, in particular the way…you manage start and end dates.…So I'm here in task view, and I want to click…in the white area in the Gantt chart.…
And as soon as I click it, that's going…to activate our Project inspector.…And you can see it's already highlighted.…In the Project inspector, the top section…is Project Info, and it has some basics there,…like the Title, but then we get into…different issues around start and end dates.…And that's really what I want to talk about.…So the first choice is are we going to use…specific dates or undetermined dates?…

Learn how to use views; track project progress with critical paths, Gantt charts, and baselines; and configure different project settings.
