Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 Upgrade - PC - 1 PC - CD-ROM
Microsoft Office Project Standard 2007 has an array of updates and additions from previous Project versions that make this Upgrade CD-ROM a must-have if you want to maintain efficient project management. Project 2007 has improved Gantt charts and background cell formatting over previous versions to create professional reports of the project schedule. This version also has financial features to help users accurately plan for costs and budgets for projects. The valuable what-if? planning feature is also an improvement from older software models. If you come across problems in a project that will prevent it from being completed on schedule, schedule adjustments can easily be made A multi-level Undo feature is also available to allow for new options or scheduling assignments to easily be made. This is an ideal software solution for individuals or small teams responsible for managing projects but who do not necessarily have the title of project manager. This software is not designed for those who need to build a large team-wide project management server system.
Microsoft Project 2007's new and enhanced tools such as project guide, help, templates, task drivers and multi-level undo all make it easier and more effective to quickly and easily set up project plans. Ever wonder what is driving the start date of a task in your plan? Now you can take advantage of the new 'Task Drivers' tool which traces the source of the controlling factors affecting the start date of any task or milestone. Ever wanted to plan without worrying about the impact of adding new information? Now with multi-level undo, you can plan with the peace of mind knowing you can undo whatever information you put into your plan.
Enhanced Project Guide
The Project Guide provides a step-by-step, interactive aid that helps set up projects, manage tasks and resources, track status, and report project information. The Guide has been improved so that project managers can easily maneuver through the project management process and they are also customizable for different methodologies. For example, it is now possible to include tools such as a link to the forms developed following the Project Management Process.
The additional templates in Office Project 2007, and the downloadable free templates from Microsoft Office Online, make it easier to start projects and to save time. It is also possible to create custom templates to ensure greater consistency and standardization across an organization.
New! Task Drivers
Because this feature did not exist in previous versions determining all the controlling factors of a task was a cumbersome process. Task drivers can now trace the source of issues by showing which factors affect the start date of a task. Examples of possible drivers are predecessors, constraints, project start date and calendar exceptions. As changes are made, it becomes easy to identify factors affecting task schedules, and to follow a chain of factors back to identify the root cause of a particular delay.
This is a much anticipated feature new to this version. What-if scenarios, such as reallocating resources, changing durations, and altering dependencies are easy to map using the undo and redo?ǃs. Changes to views, data, options and more are all possible with Multi-Level Undo?ǃs. Actions or sets of actions from macros can also be undone to test several what-if scenarios in order to fully understand the implications of each choice.
Whether it is communicating with project team members, senior management, or project customers, Microsoft Project 2007?ǃs new communication tools can generate custom reports in a variety of format according to stakeholders needs.
