Team Planner substitute for Project 2010 STANDARD instead of Pro?
Posted on 2012-04-05
Client has a large number of short projects they need to assign resources to. Team Planner is the ideal way to set up a view from which they can see usage and unassigned tasks at the same time in a calendar-esque window and drag and drop to assign the workload.
Client also only has Project Standard edition and Team Planner is a Professional edition feature. Before I spend too much time trying to come up with a custom layout myself or writing detailed instructions for some workaround, I thought I'd see if any Experts have suggestions or can even attach a template with a custom view that would help.
BTW, I've already suggested the solution of "just buy the upgrade to Pro" but budget prevents that, even though user knows it will make his life MUCH EASIER.
