Chapter 7. Viewing Your Schedule > Working with the Network Diagram View

Working with the Network Diagram View

A new view called the Network Diagram has been added to Microsoft Project. As you can see from Figure 7.33, the Network Diagram is a graphic display of tasks in a project, in which each task is represented by a small box or node. Lines connect the nodes to show task dependencies. The Network Diagram is most useful for an overall view of how the process or flow of task details fit together. You can also use the Network Diagram to enter your task list and create your project schedule.

The task nodes in the Network Diagram differ considerably both in their look and in the data they present from the former PERT Chart nodes. In this view you now have extensive formatting options (including the ability to format by task category or by individual boxes), and more fields are displayed in each task box. Additionally you now have a number of alternatives for displaying the layout of the task boxes and selectively displaying task boxes via filtering—a feature never available in the PERT Chart view.
