Upgrading from Team Manager 97 to MS Project 2003
Posted on 2006-05-03
I had been using Team Manager 97 until we got upgraded to Windows SP2, which seems to have broken the Manager piece.
It's probably time to upgrade anyway. :)
I have MS Project 2003 and have imported the Team Manager file. It appears that Project will do a great job scheduling the task & resources, if I enter all the data. I've been spoiled with Team Manager because the members would update their tasks with their time, mark them completed and send me updates. I can't seem to find that same functionality with Project 2003. I really do not want to create more work for my self by entering in all the data.
Here are some of my questions:
1. Does anyone know how to fix Team Manager to run under Windows SP2? I getting an error on open that says I can't save the file, not enough disk space, or lost network connection. The same file opens and works fine on a non SP2 machine.
2. Is MS Project not the right tool for the job? I want to schedule & assign projects to team members and have the members update their projects.
3. Are there other tools that can do the same thing that Team Manager did?
Thanks for your help.
