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.

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.

The field should designate a categorisation of the work.

Hi,

We are employing a new developer next week.

Our current developers have been working with us for a number of years and they have direct access to everything (which i know is not the best policy).

01 - What is the best way to rollout a new developer onto a project. We have a set roadmap for them to work on, so essentially they will need to access all of the code.

02 - How can you stop a developer from stealing the code, or at least put security precautions in place?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I'm an IT report developer with a few miles on my belt. Officially we are the Business Intelligence team. We use SAP Business Intelligence Suite 4.2, aka BusinessObjects. I remember James Martin back in the day (1990's) but haven't heard or read much about him, not that I'm the most well read person around. But I do have a pretty good library of software development books, from Karl Weigers to Steve McConnell to Gerald Weinberg, and "The Mythical Man Month". At the moment I'm trying to bring our organization into modern times in regards to Business Intelligence. What we have are awful legacy minded reports that no one uses, i.e., 85% of active OLTP users run NO reports (and the OLTP itself is a 1990's style system).

We are also trying to bring in Crystal Reports for high-end reporting, and other tools for "Dashboards".

Around here it's a totally legacy mindset, to include a CIO who's up there in years and is totally old-school, constantly referencing to James Martin and his approach. So is JM still a "classic" who's books should be on my shelf (to include reading them)? In order to influence the organization to "get modern", I have to start by convincing the CIO that there's a better way nowadays (to Business Intelligence).  Also, no one around here knows how to spell "agile".

Do you have a recommended James Martin classic or two, at least so I can be able to step up intellectually to where the CIO is coming from? And while I'm at it, any other classic books / …

Hi
I have a Waterfall Project Plan I created in MS Project 2013.  I want to create a Milestone Report off this (which includes subtasks).

However when I try to create the report some of the text overlaps or information is missing.

What is the best way to create a Milestone Report?

How should my Waterfall plan be set up?

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thanks ,

Hello,

Now having a situations where there are 2 projects occurring, at the same time, on the same section of code in a webpage.  Looking for suggestions on how to manage each project so that project 1 doesn't overwrite code in project 2.  The projects are more complex then listed below.  The time to complete each project is usually due to slow movement from testing to production.

Simple Example:
Have an employee table and an employees info page.  Project 1: Format the phone number.  Project 2: Change the phone number from 1 column in the table to another column in the table.
Both would affect the same area of code in the web page.

Is there a standard way of managing this so the development doesn't overwrite each other when updated?  Any ideas are appreciated.  


Thanks
Jess

Hello EE,

I am looking for guidance on how your team defines IT projects v.s. just regular user requests and tasks?
Is it based on hours alone or collaboration among more than one person?

Wanted to know how to setup pass-through authentication for our internal use websites and applications.

I have 12 specific people assigned to a task. I need to move 3 to a new task for 3 days and then back.
I need to be able to assign by the specific person for each task. How can I move people in and out of tasks?
Example:  Task 1 has all 12 individuals assigned for 3 weeks.  Then on day 7 I need to pull 3 specific people off and assign them to Task 2 for 4 days and then put them put them back on Task 1 for the remaining time.
What it the best way to accomplish this?  Can you suspend resources?

Is there any project management software that will allow a task to have a duration of less than a minute?  Is there a way for Microsoft Project to all for this?  (setting ".5 minute" does not really work)

Thanks

I want to take the PMP but afraid I don't have the experience required so alas I am probably going to take the CAPM. Do you all know the difference as far as studying is concerned?

I have Rita's PMP exam prep, but don't want to study 600+ if I can study her 400+ book for CAPM. I don't have the CAPM book yet for Rita, as it's a hefty price!!

Thanks
