As your projects grow in complexity and in length, it is easy to lose sight of how all of your tasks fit together. Project 2010 and earlier allow you to highlight and filter down to the critical path of your project, which is a great way to see which tasks affect your project’s finish date. Many times, the project finish date doesn’t tell you the full story though. For example, let’s say that you are managing a construction project, and your favorite contractor suddenly announces he is retiring at the end of the month. You check your project plan, and you see that you were expecting him two weeks after this deadline. However, the list of predecessors that are driving his tasks is daunting.
On average, people work on five to seven projects at a time. For example, a wedding planner may have several clients that she is planning weddings for and she might have a task management site in SharePoint for each (see “Managing Tasks in SharePoint”). In this case, she’ll have tasks assigned to her from several different places, in addition to tracking personal tasks outside of those projects.
Rather than drilling into each site individually to see her assignments, she can now use a new feature called My Tasks, under the Newsfeed Hub, to see at a glance all the things she needs to do across projects together in one place.
My Tasks can aggregate all tasks assigned to you in SharePoint, Outlook, and Project into one experience and enables you to organize and manage both personal and assigned tasks alike.
The goal is not just to show you tasks but to be a one stop shop to take action on them too. Here are some things it can help you do.
For smaller projects, we see a lot of users turning to SharePoint task lists. With the new SharePoint, we've made that experience even better to manage tasks as a team. But for most organizations, you'll want greater visibility into all your work. This is where Project Online and PWA (Project Web Access) really shines. Task lists can easily connect and sync with all the enterprise project data stored in PWA.
Welcome to the new home of the Project Blog! Here you can learn all about the latest release of Microsoft Project, which you can preview today!
On this blog, you'll find answers to common questions, tips on getting the most out of Microsoft Project, and stories from our customers and MVP's. As we share the latest information on Project and what we're working on, we look forward to hearing from each of you.
Hi! I’m Mike McLean, Program Manager with the Microsoft Project team. Today we’ll discuss some of the changes to server reporting in the next version of Project Web App (PWA), including an introduction to the new OData service.
Historically, users access data in PWA by going directly against the database or via cubes available on-premises. With the launch of Project Online this release, we also have users storing data in Office 365. To provide access to this data, we’ve built an OData service that can be used to retrieve data stored in your instance of PWA. This OData service is available for both online and on-premises deployments. Excel 2013 now has native support for OData feeds and can authenticate to Office 365 to retrieve data from Project Online. More information on OData can be found at http://www.odata.org/.
