Resource Management

The final video is the Microsoft Project 2010 Certificate series presents on the subject of resource management. The presentation is given by Jacques Goupil, managing partner of MS Project Now and contributor to MPUG. Jacques begins with teaching showing users the resource sheet in Microsoft Project 2010. One helpful tip given was that if users what to see specific data information for a certain resource, they must be in the resource sheet view. Another main topic discussed in this video is how to use the Team Planner, a new addition to Microsoft Project 2010. This is an excellent new tool to learn how to use and all types of users are recommended to view the video for using the Team Planner. Finally, Jacques goes into leveling resources and why users might want to keep using it even though they may have been turned away from it the first time.
