Follow along with project management experts Bonnie Biafore and John Riopel as they share their tips for recording actual values in Microsoft Project.
- [Voiceover] Planning project schedules in Microsoft Project is a great way to prepare for project success, but don't stop there. In this course, I'll show you how to record and manage actual values in Microsoft Project. That way you can evaluate your project's performance and correct course if need be. We'll kick things off by getting a project file ready for updating. Next, I'll guide you through building custom views that make updating duration or work easy.
We'll explore methods for updating tasks, whether they run according to schedule or not. Finally, we'll look at importing progress updates into Project. Are you anxious to know where your project stands? Are you yearning to use that information to keep your project on track? Then what are we waiting for? Let's start working with actual values in Microsoft Project.
