Project Management

Project management is the discipline of carefully projecting or planning, organizing, motivating and controlling resources to achieve specific goals and meet specific success criteria. A project is a temporary endeavor designed to produce a unique product, service or result with a defined beginning and end (usually time-constrained, and often constrained by funding or deliverables) undertaken to meet unique goals and objectives, typically to bring about beneficial change or added value.

Hello,

I have created a list for project status updates on SP 2013. It has columns like Project Name, Owner, Status, start & end date, Updates(Comments).

Under the Updates column, there is one big comments sections where we keep adding additional updates each week.

Eg: 6/6/17: Project kick off

     6/27/17: Revised Plan

This is not a very user friendly view and will soon run out of character space.

How do I setup Project status updates for every week such that whenever Manager wants to see updates for projects at a end of particular week, he gets it.

On Demand Webinar: Networking for the Cloud Era

Did you know SD-WANs can improve network connectivity? Check out this webinar to learn how an SD-WAN simplified, one-click tool can help you migrate and manage data in the cloud.

I'm not a SharePoint expert by any means, but I've loosely followed the a guide online (sharegate) for creating a Project Management site, where you have sub-sites as "projects" created from a site "template" to keep uniform, consistent sites with apps/web parts to manage a project.
I then have a content query on the main site that shows all the sub-sites, which are effectively all projects.
Problem I'm having is determining how to know when a project is "complete" and thus how to then remove it from the content query at the top. No sense in having projects showing up if they were from years ago.
I also would rather not delete them, for historical purposes and reference (could be some good useful documents in their doc libraries for example).
So with existing 15 projects, anything I can do to each site like add a drop-down or form where the project is marked active/complete, etc, and then modify a the search query to exclude them?
To give the same example from the article I followed, the query is like this:    
path:"http://demo/projects" contentclass:STS_WEB Site<>{Site.URL}

Hi,

Does anyone have any tools that exports / backups your entire Trello account / boards.

I know the Business Class provides backup but it's one board at a time. I have over 70 boards so it's a little time consuming to backup each month.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi, i've been using Trello a lot lately and i'm considering moving everything over from Evernote to Trello. Like many others on here, productivity and organisation are key to me.

While there is no right or wrong answer to my question(s), I would like to hear what other people's thoughts and setup are, in relation tot he following:

01 - when you have a list of items or tasks... how do you define whether you should add them as 'multiple cards on a list' or 'add all of the items as a checklist to one card' :-)

02 - has anyone else moved their notes from Evernote to Trello... how did you find the change?

03 - any regrets or dislikes with Trello

Thank you in advance for your help.

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

Hello Experts,

Currently the Atlassian applications along with the Postgres databases reside on 1 VM.

I am looking for any recommendations for splitting up the applications/databases and platform options to integrate the Atlassian applications on (VM, Docker or AWS).

We have 100 users split between the US and UK.

Hi ,

I want to introduce a data 'template' to be completed in project planning. To explain a bit more we undertake a lot of data projects but want more thought to be given on how the data is handles, for example what fields are needed and what IT system is needed.

Has anyone produced anything like this please ?

I have a need for a calendar system that allows for different/multiple category grouping.  Here's the background on the situation and what I'm looking to do:

We have colleagues that want to share work calendars.  So, the first part is we want to be able to view calendars by person (yay, the easy part).  So we have Jim, John, and Mary.  I want to be able to view all of their calendars, one at a time or all together.  

However, Jim, John, and Mary work with the the same client companies, say Genzyme, Walmart, and Adobe.  So, each person will have calendar items for each of those clients.  

I would like to be able to view the calendar for each person, listing their calendar items with all of the clients.
AND
I would like to be able to view the calendar for each client.  For instance, seeing a calendar for Walmart which will list when each of my colleagues have something scheduled for that client.

Are there are any calendar products that can do this?  

Thank you!!!
