Hour 9. Formatting Views

As you've already learned in earlier hours, Project offers several different ways to view the various aspects of your projects. These major Project views include the Gantt Chart, which displays information in both a sheet and chart format; the Calendar view, which shows task schedules in a familiar calendar layout; and the Network Diagram, which emphasizes the tasks in your project and their relationships.

Project gives you a great deal of flexibility to enhance and change these available views. You can format selected text, format timescales, and zoom in and out to get a closer or wider look at the view shown. A plain Gantt Chart can be spruced up by adding graphics and text next to task bars. There is even a Gantt Chart Wizard that you can use to have Project do most the work creating enhanced Gantt Charts.

In this hour, you will learn:

  • How to change formatting styles for task types

  • How to format a Gantt Chart using a supplied wizard

  • How to change the appearance of the Calendar view

  • How to control Network Diagram formatting

  • What options to use when arranging Network Diagram task boxes
