Product information "Microsoft Project 2013 Professional"
Quick start to work
Instead of confronting you with an empty file, Project 2013 takes you to a one-stop center where you get your project off the ground. Browse the predefined templates, import information from Excel or a SharePoint site, or simply click Empty Project to get a blank Gantt chart. At this point you can also open previous projects on your computer or on SkyDrive.
Visualization of project data - Graphical reports
With Project 2013 you can create fresh, colorful professional reports without having to export your data to another program first. Add images, diagrams, animation, links and more ? everything you need to share project status information clearly and effectively with your project environment and team members.
A comprehensive new set of reports
A whole new set of pre-installed reports makes full use of the new graphics and formatting options. The walls full of detailed data have disappeared and have been replaced by vivid diagrams and images that make the history of your project more accessible at first glance. You can add or remove any elements from these reports. You can even change the colors.
Burndown reports show planned work, completed work, and remaining work as lines in a graph. These lines give you and your project environment the status at a glance and let you know if the project is behind schedule. Or ahead of schedule,
now you can create dynamic burndown reports in Project ? You do not need to export your data!
Communicate with your team
Project 2013 helps you to stay in touch with your team members. Get up-to-date information on progress, ask questions quickly or even lead discussions on long-term strategy without leaving Project. Simply rest your cursor on a name and initiate a chat session, video chat, email message or even a phone call -
Lync 2010 or later must be installed to use these features
Tracking of process paths
In a complex project, your Gantt chart can quickly look like a tangled knot of bars and link lines. To help you find your way around, you can highlight the link chain ? or the operation path ? for any operation. When you click on an operation, all its predecessor paths are displayed in one color and all its successor paths in another color.
Taking projects into the distant future
In Project 2013, you can edit dates for activities and projects until December 31, 2149. This is a century more than before!
