Build a Milestone Dashboard that provides visibility into when and which project
- [Voiceover] Now that we have a consolidated…master project, we want to build…a new report that goes across all of these projects…and get a little bit more detailed…into the custom area.…I'm going to go to the report ribbon…and select new, comparison project.…I'll name my project 'Multiple Project Status'…and press okay.…It now gives me the elements within…this particular report.…I'm going to move my title box…up to the left-hand corner,…similar to other reports that…we've already created and I'll move…these two graphs over to the side as well,…so I can get them on a single sheet.…
So I'll move those up here.…Now, currently the two graphs within here…show project information in hours…in both cases.…I want to modify each of those elements,…however I also want to change my title box,…similar to the other reports that we've created.…So I'm going to right-click on that title box…and select 'Format Shape.'…And I'll fill that in with our solid fill…and of course the grey color.…I'll also change the text options…to change that color to white.…
