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?
Ways to share only main project and not all other sub projects
Capturing a snapshot of your Microsoft Office Project plan is a great way of sharing your work with others that don’t have Microsoft Office Project installed. You can share your snapshot by sending it as an image file, printing a hard copy of the snapshot, or posting it on a website so other members of the group can see it.
To create a snapshot, start Microsoft Office Project then load your file. Select the view that shows the data you want to capture as image. If you only want to select a row, click on the task or resource ID number of the row. If you want to select only a set of adjacent rows, press and hold the SHIFT key then click on the first and last ID numbers of the group.
If you want to select rows that are not adjacent, press and hold the CTRL key then click the ID numbers. After that, click Copy Picture. In the Copy Picture dialog box under “Render image” section, select how you want to capture your snapshot. If you select “For screen”, the snapshot image will be captured with a resolution best viewed on monitor.
If you select “For printer”, the snapshot image will be captured using a resolution best suited for printing. If you select “To GIF image file”, the snapshot image will be saved using the GIF file format. After that under Copy section, click “Rows on screen” to capture the rows that are visible on your screen or click “Selected rows” to capture only the rows you have selected including the ones that are not shown on the screen.
Note that the Copy section is not available when capturing a view that doesn’t use rows. Under Timescale section, click “As shown on screen” to capture a snapshot of the timescaled data as it appears on your screen. Otherwise, click From and then enter a start and end date for the period you want to capture. Also take note that the Timescale section is not available when capturing a view that doesn’t use timescaled data.
