Project Set-up

  1. Always start a project plan by setting the Project Information which includes the start date and provides a date from which the schedule will be calculated.
  2. Always set the working time for your project and ensure that this does not conflict with the working time of any other organisation or department that you may share your plan with.
  3. Always identify and set up a resource sheet and then assign resources to the tasks.
