This class will provide the in-depth understanding to better use Microsoft Project more effectively. The basic concepts will be expanded to maximum capacity. Complicated concepts will be explained to the necessary level for better comprehension.
The project creation portion of the class rapidly covers the introductory topics providing alternate methods, shortcuts, results, and the most commonly used techniques. The “managing a project” portion of the class will explain how to adjust a schedule and status an existing schedule to keep track of progress. We will also look into some of the more unknown features to manage multiple projects and share resources. Finally, we will learn how to customize fields and views to better manage projects.
This class is designed for the advanced Microsoft Project user. If you have taken both level 1 and level 2 classes, you will be ready to take this course. If you are an advanced level user of Microsoft Project, this class will be your chance to ask those “why” questions that nobody else seems to know.
