I’m so very happy! And it should come as no surprise to you if you are a LinkedIn connection or know anything about me. I’ll tell you why I’m happy:
I’m an MVP!
This basically means that I would need to change my UserVoice series a little bit by stating that I’m reaching out to my fellow MVP’s in the Project and Portfolio Management space. Today, we have Guillaume Rouyre as a guest MVP. He wanted us to take a closer look at the UserVoice item:
Provide support for backup and restore of a single project
And just like many great ideas on the UserVoice for MS Project… This one has been on the site for quite some time, Feb 9, 2016! to be exact.
As of September 2018: There have been 204 votes and 13 comments on this item. Let’s increase it and start voting for this to come to Project Online. Continue reading UserVoice #3: Provide support for backup and restore of a single project

Hi lovely readers,
On 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.
The webinar was a huge success, with 900+ people signing up and 437 people attending the live show. This article is sort of a wrap up and a “More information” kind of post. If you haven’t seen the recording yet: here’s your chance.

With only 6 days left till the Project virtual conference starts, here is an update about the top sessions I would look into. I made 3 separate selections because of the different tracks that you can follow. I limited my list to only 5 sessions per track. This does not mean that the other sessions are any less, but these are just my personal pick and interests. Regardless, I hope you will join the conference and help make it an awesome event.
If you have not registered yet here is the link. Continue reading Top sessions to watch – The Project Virtual Conference
Exciting news! I have just created an outlook e-mail address. And (you may be aware of this) Microsoft provides every outlook.com user with a OneDrive file share with 5 GB of free storage. I call it the TPC OneDrive (TPC as in The Project Corner of course).

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
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.

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!
