Things To Do When Starting a New Project File

It's ironic that many people adopt Microsoft Project to help them get organized, but then don't want to bother with an organized approach to using Project. There are just three things I urge you to do at the beginning of any new project:

  • Set the start or finish date for the project, which gives Project a peg on which to base its schedule calculations.

  • Record the goal or objective of the project to guide your planning. It will prove invaluable in keeping you focused on the end result.

  • Change any of the critical default options that govern how Microsoft Project calculates the schedule for your project.
