    I’m no Barbara Walters, but…

    • 5 Comments

    I’m getting ready to delve into the world of video interviews. Here’s the idea…we’ve got an amazing group of PMs for Project here that have a wealth of information floating around in their heads. I know there’s a great reader base on this blog, and I’m sure you all have a ton of questions you’d like to pose to those PMs. Enter the video interview. Process will go as follows:

    1. I’ll write a blog entry asking for questions on a specific topic, for a specific PM.
    2. You write your questions about that topic in the comments on that blog entry.
    3. I take those questions to the PM, and record a video interview with him/her. (Or, in some cases, conduct a written Q&A if the PM isn’t available for a video interview.)
    4. I post the video or written Q&A as another blog entry.

    Thumbs up? Thumbs down? What do you think? Also, any top-of-mind suggestions for topics? I’ve got a great list of my own right now, but would love your input as well…

    Tips and Tricks: Where did my tasks go?

    • 3 Comments

    One problem that often crops up when analyzing task and resource issues with Project 2007 is mishandling filters. After creating a complex filter that spans multiple columns, you may wish there'd be a quick way to turn off the filters for all the columns. Or worse, maybe someone sent you a project with filtering apply, and you can't easily tell which column filters to turn off.

    Simple.

    Click F3. All the filtering is now removed.  And, of course, this works in Project 2010, too.

    Project 2010 is announced!

    • 0 Comments

    ConfShotYesterday in front of a very lively audience, Chris Capossela announced Project 2010 and gave everyone the first look at all the new features. As someone who has been working on 2010 for quite some time, it was great to hear applause break out at several points throughout the demos.

    Also, as you can see, with the announcement we’ve update the look of the blog and are going to start posting about Project 2010. Next week check back to learn more about Project’s implementation of the Fluent UI.

    I've added a link to the new Windows Live Translator service that was rolled out this week.  The link is in the News section in the left column.  Clicking that link will bring up our site in the Live Translator site.  You can then pick which language you would like to see the posts.  I can't attest to the quality of machine performed language translations, but hopefully WLT does it well enough for this linkage to be usable to you.
