I have Freemind application installed which I use to organize all my main tasks and subtasks. Is the WBS generated by the Freemind is as per standard? Can I directly import the WBS to MS Project without copy pasting? I have tried to copy but hierarchy won’t be maintained properly. Has anybody used Freemind or very similar application to achieve the above objective? Can indentation be kept automatic? Any suggestions on alternative scheduling applications? Has anybody have good experience with the MindManager software tool?
I have a total of 12 sub projects in MS Project. I am using Windows 7 Operating System. How is snap shot tool useful in sharing the project with others? How to send only one subtask view for any person without sending all other files? How to free up dependencies of MPP? Can I create Master project under which all other tasks are there but yet still share only master project with other clients? How to create a static master project?
I am using MS project for a project which has more than 120 tasks. I recently refreshed TFS and I can see that the roll up time do sent match with the actual. Since there are so many tasks, resetting the resource allocation is not a viable option. What are the properties of TFS? How should one ideally treat the TFS project? Can I import the TFS data into new project directly? How to refresh and still get the proper roll up time in MS project?
I have a project whose time elapsed component is not acceptable as in this project there are several future activities which are either started or already complete. I also have doubt about tasks which are interrupted. How to consider all these and report percentage completion of entire project? I have base lined the project and I am little confused about the measurement. What are fixed duration tasks and how are they different from normal tasks? What are the changes to be done while measuring the performance of whole project?
Assume there are five people to whom tasks have to be allocated. I want one person to work on a task for complete day or until the task is complete whichever is earlier. How to define this requirement is MS project so that, first person will get to handle the task on Monday, the remaining task will be handled by the second person on Tuesday and so on? I have tried, but since the task almost gets over in two days, the other three persons are not getting the tasks only to be accomplished. What is the solution?
I am managing a very big project with multiple managers for specific task groups. I would like to assign one of the mangers to update the task status. How to set any one of the available several project managers as a manager with rights to update the task status? How to add multiple managers to one single project? What are the permission rights available? Adding the resources is easy thing. But I am worried more here about roles and their permissions.
I have the role of Manger and I am trying to analyze the efficiency of tasks assignment and status of the tasks. If I select one individual task, what should I do to view the efforts of all associated put into that task in one view? Is there a way to create custom group so that I can view efficiency of selected associate in the entire project? What is work filed primarily used for? Does it have anything in store for my requirement? How to use work file?
I am using the MS Project and I am trying to take print out of the calendar with the tasks. I am trying to make all the tasks visible but I can notice that some of the cell data are missing. Is it a known issue while issuing print in MS project? Cannot I get all the tasks printed in one page with current view? What are the optimizations I can do to get all tasks in page printed? What is the best option in setting Layout view?
I am using Microsoft Project and I got this challenge in MS project. If I assume that I have five associates and I have to assign 5 tasks for them, what are the options I have? What is the best way to assign a task to an associate? Do there we have any standard algorithms to track the tasks and responsible associate? If I have to assign 1 task to all 5 shall I set 500% to that particular task? How to track individual performances then?
