<coffee>

One of my customers recently wanted to calculated %Planned for each task (and therefore each project).  They had done a little research on the net but the formula they found didn’t work in Project Online, only MS Project.

Gantt Charts in Power BI part II #ProjectOnline #PowerBI #GanttChart

 

It came to my attention recently that my previous post on Gantt Charts in Power BI needed slight modification in order to display the correct length of the Gantt bar.  In the post I used the ProjectDuration to display the duration on the Gantt bar, however this is held in “working hours” and not . . . → Read More: Gantt Charts in Power BI part II #ProjectOnline #PowerBI #GanttChart

I recently ran an MPUG session integrating Project with Excel.  Part of the presentation was using the Visual Reports feature and exporting the data to Excel, and I had one of those questions which caught me out (though it shouldn’t have, I’d just had a long day!).  So this post answers the question that . . . → Read More: Viewing Timephased data in Visual Reports #MSProject #Excel
