Hi Experts,

I need to manage a few projects, so I chose to use MS Project Pro 365, so I have been using it about an hour...

I have entered the basic tasks of one of my projects and broke it in to 2 Phases, 3 Modules, and sub tasks...

The non-bolded duration has been entered by me, whereas the bolded I assume is calculated? However, as you will see they do not add up.  

For example, under Requirements the login module should be 6 hours (or 6/8 = 0.75d) but it said 0.38 days.

Even if we take the modules (assuming they are correct) 0.38 + 0.75 + 0.38 should add up to 1.51 days, but the requirements phase indicates only 0.75

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi Experts

Does any one know a good and inexpensive program for project management, where I can:

- specify milestones  by project.
- for each milestone, specify tasks.
- for each task, specify hours, % completed, cost, assigned to, add Rich Text notes and attachments.

- combine tasks that I will do this week from multiple projects (Color coded), with running totals of time and cost.


 - for each project, milestone see a summary

Thank you

A quantity surveyor recieves a .mpp file from the architect.

QS is on Project 2016
Architect is on 2013

The file opens but the dates are completely wrong.

Calendar options and date formats look to be set the same on both systems.

Attached files show how it should look, and how it looks on QS PC.

If QS saves the project and sends it back, the wrong dates now show if the architect opens it.

What could the problem be?

Thanks

I am rewriting a MS project audit program for MS project 2016.  I have to have both projects with the same custom view.  I use
    OrganizerMoveItem Type:=0, FileName:=pName, ToFileName:=mName, Name:="Audit1"
        ViewApply Name:="&Audit1"
where the first project is made available the custom view.  If I stop it there and look at the project, it has the view.  I repeat the process for the second project and it has the audit1 view, but the first project reverts back to the view it had upon opening.

How can I get both projects to have the same view?

Hi,

Tried finding a link for MS Project 2016 trial but could not get. I teach MS Project, but my students find it difficult to learn it because they cannot purchase it. I purchased MS Project 2007 earlier to teach, but that is old now.

Is there any way I can purchase a cheap student edition type version for myself, and can somehow give some link to my students (who change every year) for learning MS Project but economically?

I am losing data after a baselining.  A week ago I baselined two projects.  Today, I am seeing that the Baseline Set Date (from the Project Ribbon, Set Baseline) is now reading as if I never baselined, and all tasks in the project are reading 0 days duration in the Baseline Duration field.  The Baseline Start, Baseline Finish and Baseline Work Fields are all behaving as they should.

Any ideas?  I have already checked the usual offenders and am using the correct earned value method.

Hello Everyone,
I am using Microsoft Project 2010.  I would like to create a report showing the cost of my project per month.  When I go to Project, Reports, Costs, Cash Flow, and generate the report, it seems to be exactly what I want but the report is empty!  There are no values in the table cells.  I have the report filtered for summary tasks if that makes a difference.

I can go to Task Usage view and select Cost in the Details group of the Format tab.  That shows the values I want but there is no easy way to export the data.  Also, it's difficult to get the time scale to show monthly in the columns.

I have tried Visual Reports and was able to get them to work after installing and older version of Excel, which is complete nonsense.  However, I can't seem to get what I want.  I can only create a useless pivot chart bar graph showing costs per quarter on one axis and cumulative cost on another axis.  I tried to use the source data to create my own pivot table to get what I want but the source data is not even in the workbook.  It's linked to some strange external data cube, whatever that is.  

At this point I'm out of ideas.  I can't believe it's this hard.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Kyle

Hi,

We currently use Dropbox and Google Drive for sharing various different documents and files on a one to one basis... however i'd like to set up a shared folder (hub) and store key files that are used on a regular basis, and not just for once off sharing.


It is important that I can set various different permissions as i don't want various departments updating or editing some of the files and docs.

From your experience, which is a more suitable platform for a shared hub of files (not online docs)? We will always use Google Drive for docs and sheets, but which is better for a file storage repository case... Google Drive or Dropbox?

Here are some example file types and use cases that might explain this better:

- logos
- brand guidelines
- stock images
- templates (code)

It is important that 90% of the team can only read and copy the files, and that senior management are the only members of staff who can edit them.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Using MS Project I would like to show the task items and duration - start and end date.  This is fairly easy and I can do that. I meet with developers and they provide me with the list of tasks and number of days to complete.  I need to present this schedule to the program manager with the developers estimated days to complete the task and then my estimate and then the best possible estimate on how long  would take to complete the project.

I read about PERT analysis and trying to do using MS Project 2012. Has anyone done some thing like this before and can share your thoughts?

thanks
