Event Description:

Ira Brown, a recognized Microsoft Project expert, will deliver this fun and informative presentation that will provide you with an understanding of the automation capabilities of Microsoft Project. The session, which is geared toward the Microsoft Project business user rather than a technical programmer, will provide practical, real-world illustrations for solving the common challenges a user faces when working with Microsoft Project.

Topics include:
• Recording and editing basic macros
• Assigning a macro to a button in the ribbon
• Creating a “zoom in/zoom out” macro to adjust text size in your project
• Creating automation to count the number of displayed tasks after a filter has been applied
• Creating automation to increase or decrease the work for a task by a specific percentage
• Creating a project status report in Microsoft Word
• Distributing your macros and custom ribbon to others
