Building clear and readable (Power BI) reports can make a big difference in project success. And, assisting Project Managers in this effort, a Project Management Office might apply Power BI to create these reports and maybe even dashboards.
On its own, Power BI is a great tool. But with the addition of custom visuals, it becomes even better.
I have reviewed a large number of visuals on my YouTube Channel, always with the mindset of helping the PMO be successful with Microsoft technology. In this article I’ll discuss 5 custom visuals I believe every PMO should apply. Let’s “get more visuals”!
I’ve skipped over May and June, it has been a very busy time for me. And I didn’t want to rush any new post just for the sake of consistency.
Welcome to a special update post, today I want to zoom in on a specific Project for the web feature request. This request came in through one of the newsletter subscribers, Jared Kay (who makes lovely handmade American furniture). But first, let’s look at the progress of the other requests on the feedback portal.
New features come in monthly. And for Project for the web there’s a Feedback portal that we can use to let Microsoft know what to build next. This is the fourth post in the series regarding the Feedback portal. And if you have been following along you might already know what’s coming. Previous posts can be found here, here and here.
For all the rest of you, I’ll look at previously discussed feature requests. And I’ll pick a new one and discuss the feature. If it’s a cool feature you might want to vote for it, it helps Microsoft focus on creating the features we want in the tool.
Do you know that almost 50% of the project management companies close within the first three years of operations? Running out of project budget & time, or lack of involvement from the team, are some of the most common reasons behind it.
It is evident how even minor mistakes can cost dollars to projects and project management organizations. These mistakes can lead to delays, budget mismanagement, and in some cases, substantial financial losses too.
This article will discuss 7 common project management mistakes that project managers make and advise how to avoid them.
I know I mentioned in blog posts and newsletters that I would be moving more towards the Power Platform . So, it might come as a surprise to see a post (after so long) about Project Management on the blog.
But actually, it’s still very close to my goal of more Power Platform AND my goal to keep writing about project and project management.
Hi reader, welcome to part two of this new series on TPC. In the previous article I started with a short explanation on why I’m doing this set of articles on PowerApps. In that article I spoke briefly about the two different kinds of apps you can create: Model driven and Canvas apps.
In this article I’m diving in deeper and exporting the two options in more detail. In which instances would you choose a Canvas app over Model driven, and the other way around. Moreover, I’m keeping in mind that we are specifically interested in Project Management solutions.
It’s a wonderful world where the TPC blog attracts enough attention that other people want to contribute to it’s content! I’ve had multiple guest bloggers on, some even multiple times such as former colleague Hester Blok (who did an excellent at making workflows in Project Server a lot more understandable).
Today there’s another return author, Ashley Lipman. She contributed previously about the Project Management trends shaping 2018. And is back here with the Top 5 Project Management Trends reshaping 2019.
As with the previous article, I’ll come back on at the end giving you my (Microsoft minded) take on what she wrote. With that, here’s Ashley:
And welcome to another Guest Post. It has been a while since I did one of these (or let someone do one of these). And Ashley from The Blog Frog came with an interesting offer that I just couldn’t refuse.
Today I would like to take you on a tour around one of the most useful views in the Microsoft Project Client. The view is called the Tracking Gantt and it contains vital information on the health of your project and it’s progress. Continue reading About the Tracking Gantt view
