Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video What you need to know, part of Mastering Microsoft Project Graphical Reports.
- [Voiceover] When you're building graphical reports in Microsoft Project, it's good to understand Task and Resource Fields, as well as Custom Fields. You might want to understand how to build Formulas or create Lookups within those particular areas, both Task and Resource. You also may want to become familiar with the Report Designer, so it's good to understand how the Report Designer works and elements that might be within it, and how those fields are used in the reports, both for Task as well as Resource.
One other point is you might want to also understand Filters as well as Groups, and how to create and build those particular elements as well. If you will find that you aren't as familiar with Project as you should be, check out mine or Bonnie Biafore's Microsoft Project courses in the Training Library.
