Event Description: 

During this interactive introductory session to Microsoft Project 2010, learn how to get more done leveraging the following new features:

New User Interface

The Project 2010 user interface is redesigned and now uses the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface (UI). Introduced in the 2007 Microsoft Office system, the Fluent UI is designed to make it easier for people to find and use the full range of features that Office applications provide, and to preserve an uncluttered workspace.

Enhanced copy and paste

This feature lets users copy and paste content between Microsoft Office programs and Project 2010, and keep formatting, outline levels, and column headers.

Excel-like features

Features similar to those in Microsoft Excel are available in Project 2010. This includes the following:

  • Simplified adding of new columns. A user can click the Add New Column heading at the right end of a sheet view, and then type or select the name of a new or existing column. An existing column can also be quickly renamed by clicking its title and typing a different column name.
  • Enhanced filter UI makes it easier for users to find tasks and resources.
  • 32-bit color support and text wrapping enable users to create views that are similar to Excel reports.

Please feel free to bring your questions about these 2010 features to the session or post them to the MPUG discussion forum.
