Hi Readers, This is it, the third (and final?) post related to Max. Units in Microsoft Project. I wrote two posts already that can be accessed through these links: Post 1 and post 2. This is a Do it Yourself post and will teach you how to use Max. Units correctly in the situation where you want to accurately portray the resource availability, but don’t care about specific days off or non project work. I frequently use this method at municipals or companies that do high level capacity management. Continue reading Using units instead of the resource calendar
Hey readers, Here is another post for you to bite into. This post is about using Max units in Microsoft Project. And if you are not familiar with the term max units, don’t worry I’ll start with a little explanation. Here we go. Continue reading Using max units in Microsoft Project
It’s been a busy month but here I am again with a new post. This post will be all about the different start dates Microsoft Project has to offer and what you can expect from them. We all know “start date” and most of you will be familiar with “baseline start date”. However, there are more! Hope you enjoy the post, let me know if I missed anything. I will be using MS Project professional 2013 in examples.
Just a small update, I got connected with Webucator, they created a video based on this post. Have a look here.
In this post I will take an extensive look at a set of fields that report progress in the schedule. I will have a close look at the Percentage complete entities within Microsoft Project There are % complete, % work complete fields and then there is also something called Physical % complete. In the field I get asked about the differences between the 3 fields on a regular basis. This post will help clear up some of the confusion, I hope.

Raphael Santos, Consultant at Sensei Project Solutions, is kind enough to provide a translated version of this post in Portuguese. Here is the link: http://www.raphael-santos.net/2016/03/campos-de-percentual-concluido-do-Microsoft-Project.html.
@Raphael; thanks man!
Have you ever wondered “what does that Van Hurck guy actually sound like?”. Well fear not, I recently got a LinkedIn message from Prasanna Adavi:
“I wanted to invite you to be a guest for an episode on MS Project Podcast. Do you think you can do it?” Continue reading Featured on The Microsoft Project Podcast
Finally I got to it. Another book review on Project Server and this time even Project Online! I met the guys at Sensei Project Solutions at the Project Conference in Anaheim. They are a great source of Project Server information, I followed a number of their presentations and also talked to the author of the book; Kenneth Steiness.
Microsoft also acknowledges the company by making it partner of the year 2014. Congratulations guys!
———————-Update June 2015————
I have added some free content related to the book on the TPC_OneDrive, go have a look, and read the “read me” file please.
I think I am not done yet with the Project conference 2014. Which was in February 2014. There was so many content that I am still working out the “aftermath weekend posts” and then there are the great meetings I had with TPG, Sensei Project Solutions, Projectum, FluentPro, EPMA, and i2e consulting.

I would just like to share a quick post with you that is closely related to Flaw 1 in my series on incorrect use of Microsoft Project stand alone version. What I want to do here is a quick win post: One that you can read in 5 minutes, but makes your live a lot easier afterwards.
This will be the last Project Conference aftermath weekend post, all video’s are posted on the Channel 9 website. So be sure to download and view any video’s that are of interest to you. The last post on the Project Conference will be about 2 level 400 video’s I watched and couldn’t leave undiscussed. Also I would like to give you a heads-up on some book reviews that will be coming this year. Continue reading Project conference -aftermath weekend part 2
I love the “myPC” tool that Microsoft used to evaluate and present the sessions. Attendees can add a session to their calander and share it with other attendees and even schedule meetings (like I did with Cindy Lewis).
