Requirements for Microsoft Project
I'm actually working on several personal projects.
That means basically a lot of projects (over 50) and only 2 resources (customers and me).
So I strongly need a sotware for planning, executing and controlling each one of them and globally, because office and google apps aren't providing me enough control over tasks.
These are the requirements:
1.- Sequence of tasks for every projects are basically the same. Some exceptions have particularities. I know every task duration and dependencies. I need a tool for programming automatically start and completion date of each task of a new project taking into consideration the time I have engaged in the other preexistent projects.
After programming, I'd like to have the chance of make some manual corrections.
2.- When a task is not performed on time, the estimated date of completion for this task and the following should follow the same criteria as for the previous point.
I mean, if I can't complete task today, the software must Not estimate I'll do that work tomorrow and finish it if I have that day engaged in other projects. It should estimate it considering the next free time on my calendar.
3.- If possible, I would like that this schedule was synchronized or at least visible in "google calendar".
Can these requirements be met for Microsoft Project?
Let me know your advanced user opinion.
Re: Requirements for Microsoft Project
To answer your direct questions:
The process is not "automatic" or shouldn't be -- but it can be accomplished fairly easily.
All this being said, Project is a significantly different product than any other Microsoft Office product. It has a fairly steep learning curve and I would encourage you to seek out a good hands-on 2-3 day class in Project before you get too far down the path.
You may download a trial (60-day) version from Microsoft's website to start experimenting.
I hope this helps.
