Welcome (back) reader, this post is an extensive book review, documenting my views and opinions on the book: The Ultimate Application Administrator’s Guide for Project Online. We have encountered the authors of the book more than once before. The guys at Sensei Project Solutions wrote multiple, high value, beautifully designed books related to the products MS Project, Project Server and Project Online.
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.

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.

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!
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.
First: a lesson I learned about blogging. Don’t promise a post a day if you can’t deliver. I’m sorry, day 2 was a very busy day that ended with a Technical Engineer singing Britney Spears’ “baby hit me one more time”. But I’m getting ahead on myself. Let’s start with Tuesday: So I actually did the run that was an idea by Jacques Goupil and PPM works. Well to be honest I did the short round. But it felt great to be running again.

So this was an action packed first day at the conference. The keynote was a real game changer with a new price offering on Project Online. Just have a look at this picture: Continue reading Project conference – Day 1
