Advanced Customization with MS Project 2007

With Microsoft Office Project 2007, project managers can define how project data is recorded, reported, and displayed, using customizable, built-in templates. They can also customize the interface by adding or removing tools from the application’s default toolbars.

Project Data Management and Performance with MS Project 2007

Project managers often share Project 2007 data with other applications, such as Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Outlook.

This course outlines the basics of importing and exporting, sorting, filtering, and grouping information to meet a project's needs. It also discusses creating and sharing resource pools in a multi-project environment, how to manage the efficient use of limited resources to keep multiple projects on schedule, and how to create task dependencies across multiple projects.
