This is a DIY post about creating The Project Online administrator links, a Promoted links list with a couple of the most used administrator actions for Project Online. I’ve created the administrator links in Project Online, but it can also be created in much the same way in PPM 2013 and 2016.
Category: Other products
Every now and then I might write about other products, such as Microsoft Planner, Microsoft Excel or Metro studio 5.0. This isn’t the core or The Project Corner but it sure is useful information if you are a Project Manager / Scheduler or consultant / Administrator. And it’s my goal to help you out and find the right tools for your current project or agile needs.
Take your time and read about the different products I’ve covered. And if there’s something missing about a product or if you think another product would be a nice addition to TPC, reach out to me in one of the comment sections in the posts.

Updating the visual reports in MS Project 2010 and 2013
Recently I got to be more active on the Linkedin forums, and I came across an interesting post that could use some elaboration. It concerns the Visual Reports within Microsoft Project 2010 and 2013. As a standard, these reports are created using old Excel templates. But what if you want to use some nice new features? You would need to save that sheet and move away from the compatibility mode. In this post I will share the things you can do to create stunning reports.
Update feb 2016 —————
Hi there, I uploaded my own versions of the Excel Reports to TechNet (they are also available from the TPC OneDrive). Here is the link to the gallery:
