- Before we get started, there are two things you need to know about this course. First, there are two different editions of Project 2010: Project Standard and Project Professional. Project Professional includes all the desktop features that Project offers. For example, the Team Planner view has tasks assigned to resources in swim lanes. You can easily spot overallocations and drag tasks to reschedule or reassign them. You can also inactivate tasks.
Inactive tasks appear in the schedule. They're grey with strikethrough through them. The interesting thing about inactive tasks is they keep all their values, but those values don't affect the schedule totals or resource availability. Project Professional also lets you publish projects to Project Server if you work in an enterprise project management environment. Those are just a few reasons why I recommend Project Professional. The other thing to know about this course is that it covers how to use Microsoft Project to manage projects.
It doesn't cover project management in detail. If you're interested in learning more about project management, Lynda.com has many courses on that subject.
