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.

In this post I will take an extensive look at a set of fields that report progress in the schedule.

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.

Microsoft also acknowledges the company by making it partner of the year 2014. Congratulations guys!

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
