I posted a blog over on Project Support covering some issues when opening mpp files from SharePoint, and also highlighting some of the differences Project has from its Office cousins – Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Visio – and will follow up with further information on version support and the Sync to SharePoint options. First post is here http://blogs.technet.com/b/projectsupport/archive/2015/01/06/saving-projects-to-sharepoint-and-opening-them-again-part-1.aspx and I did make some edits this morning to aid readability – added some headers and captions to the screenshots. The main points remain the same however.
While I am posting there are also some good new posts from the MVP community (and others) that I thought were worth a shout out:
- Marc Boyer, a name you might recognize from his days here at Microsoft has posted a very useful blog Microsoft Project Online – Where did my reports go?! over on the Advisicon Blog – covering the new reporting structure in Project Online following the change away from the BI Center.
- Alex Burton at epmsource has a great posting of some useful New Year links – Some useful links for the new year
- Andrew Lavinsky at UMT posts on Adding Tasks to the Timeline with VBA – very cool!
- Michael Wharton has very kindly included links to the recently added CU pages in his posting SharePoint and Project Server Patches and Updates – along Todd Klindt’s pages
- Just this morning Nenad Trajkovski caught my eye with Multinational Calendars and how to use them in MS PROJECT 2013? and last week posted Duration, Units, Work and Schedule in MS PROJECT 2013. How are they linked, and some tips and tricks! – something that many customers would benefit from reading!
- Oleksiy Prosnitskyy hits a hot topic with How to configure and build PowerView report in Project Server 2013
- Paul Mather wished us a Happy New Year highlighting some of his most read articles of 2014 – #HappyNewYear everyone! 2014 #blog review / highlights #ProjectServer #ProjectOnline #Office365
- Prasanna Adavi promised us more blogs and podcasts for 2015 with Happy New Year 2015! – and Prasanna – I haven’t forgotten that I promised to join you for a podcast – we will make that happen!
I usually only search through the MVP posts but Erik van Hurck has posting some good stuff at The Project Corner including a very useful Resources page. And I’m ot just saying that because this site is on the list! I’ll keep an eye out for other good project blogs – some of the regulars have been a little quiet lately!
Finally in case you haven’t seen them we do have some support content from my European colleagues:
- From Paris – Marc and Maelle doing a great job at Blog Support Technique EPM
- Jorge driving the Spanish content from Madrid – El Faro de Project Server
- Raphael and Thomas from Germany with Project Engineering Deutschland
Hope you enjoy all this great content! And Happy New Year 2015!
