Part II: Developing a Timeline > Starting the Scheduling Process

Hour 4. Starting the Scheduling Process

In Hour 3, "Starting a New Project and Working with Tasks," you put together the list of tasks that need to be completed in your project, but that list is not a workable schedule until you attach realistic dates showing when work on each task is expected to start and finish. Hour 5, "Defining When Project Can Schedule Tasks," gives you an overview of the factors Project considers in calculating dates for tasks. You learn in this and the next hour how to control these factors with your instructions. However, the story will not be complete until Hour 12, "Mastering Resource Scheduling in Microsoft Project," where you look at how changing resource assignments affects the schedule.

Although Microsoft Project assigns defaults, in this hour, you will learn how to:

  • Select a default format for dates

  • Set your own start and finish dates

  • Define duration units

  • Control the working hours in a day and a week
