Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video Fill in duration, work, and dates quickly, part of Microsoft Project Tips Weekly.
- [Bonnie] Bonnie Biafore here.…This week, we'll look at shortcuts for filling in…duration, work, and dates in a project schedule.…We're going to start by looking at the default measures…for duration and work.…Go to the File tab, and then at the bottom of the list,…on the left, click Options.…In the Project Options dialog box,…click the Schedule category.…Now we're going to take a look at the scheduling options…for this project section.…
You can see that duration is entered in days by default.…And work is entered in hours.…We can use these settlings to our advantage…to fill in duration and work values quickly.…So let's click OK to close that dialog box.…We're going to start by adding in the Work field…to the table in this view.…So I'm going to right click the Start heading…and choose Insert Column.…
And then I'll add the Work field.…Let's start by taking a look at the duration for task two,…remove fixtures and cabinets.…Right now the duration is 4 and 1/2 days.…But let's say that I want to change that duration…to three days.…
