Join John Riopel for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Working with Custom Fields and Formulas in Microsoft Project.
- [Instructor] This course focuses on building custom fields and formulas in Microsoft Project. I'm not going to be covering many Microsoft Project basics, so here's what you should already know about Project. You should understand ribbons. Views, either task views as well as resource level views. You should understand tables within those views, both custom and, of course, built in. And lastly, fields. Under the project ribbon, custom fields, both task and resource.
If you discover that you aren't as familiar with Project as you should be, check out my Mastering Project Graphical Reports or other Microsoft Project courses in the Lynda.com training library.
