Hi lovely readers,

The webinarOn the 12th of December 2017 I took a deep dive, into “the world of webinars”! Microsoft offered Projectum and myself a platform to talk about our view on Project Management and the tools Microsoft has to offer.

About Cost resources

Cost resources article pictureThis has been a post that has been on my mind for far too long. About cost resources is a About post that focuses on a very specific resource type you can utilize in Microsoft Project. I’m using MS Project Pro for Office 365 and Project Online. But most of the things you see here will also be appropriate for Project (Server) 2010, 2013 and 2016. Continue reading About Cost resources

About the Unassigned Resource

Hi readers,

This post is another very specific one, related to a strange phenomenon in Project Server reports that I wanted to dive into and solve. If you do not experience the Unassigned Resource mystery yourself, but found my blog because you are interested in Project Online (for instance) maybe these posts will be of interest to you: The book reviews, The Project Virtual Conference, The Project Corner OneDrive or the other “About posts”.
