Q&A

Q1:I have several old project files that were created before I set the defaults recommended in this hour. Have those settings been changed in those files also?
A1: No, setting the defaults only changes the settings in the template that Project uses as the default for new files (the file named GLOBAL.MPT). You will have to open those files and change the option settings in each one if you want to apply the new settings to those files.
Q2:Do tasks have to be entered in the list in the order in which they need to be performed?
A2: No, the order in the list has no effect on the order in which they will be scheduled. In the next hour, you will see how to define the scheduling order. However, it does make it easier to understand the schedule if tasks within the major summary tasks are approximately in the order of execution.
Q3:Do I have to follow these steps and create my major tasks first?
A3: Absolutely not. Many people prefer the "brain dump" method: open a file and list all the tasks you can think of for your project. Then use the copy, move, insert and delete techniques to put your tasks in a logical order. But do create an outline hierarchy at some point; the benefits of outlining are enormous.
