  • 1. Send and receive Text messages to subs
    I have been using MS project for several years and would like to know how I can send submittals or changes in the schedule to the sub contractors. I know that the outlook Journal can track documents or communications with particular individuals. I interested in not only tracking the project schedule but also being able to notify the subcontractors of changes in the schedule. If I could generate a document that would communicate the progress of a job, wither it was delayed or moved ahead to each of the subcontractors. It might be in the form of a text document that I could fax to them and have them confirm the receipt of it and commit to the schedule change. After receiving the fax back I could use it to document the project according to each sub. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks John Nemesh
  • 2. multiple-value field for a project
    Dear all, hope to get your advice on the following: I need to create several multiple-value fields characterising a project. For example: field "Geography", list of values = list of cities where the project may be performed (there can be one city, several cities on the choice and all cities). I know that there's such an opportunity for resources to define a multiple skill sets, but that doesn't work for a project-related field. What can I do to solve this problem? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Elena.

    In the last 2 days I started getting an ActiveX error on the pjgrid11.ocx file with a description of MS Project 2003 Service Pack 1. The error shuts down my web browser and won't let me view the resource availability graph in PWA. How do I fix this? Thanks!

This also works for word, excel, ... but NOT for Project. Can anybody tell me how to solve this? Thnx in advance!

Hide Resource Name on Gantt Bars globally

Is there a way to hide the Resource Name that is displayed next to each Gantt 
bar? I know you can remove the name display on a bar-by-bar, individual 
basis, but is there a global setting that will "not" show resource names for 
the entire project?

Hi Steve,

Welcome to this Microsoft Project newsgroup :)

Try Format/Bar Styles... and in the Text tab, delete the entry for Resource 
Names from the "right" cell.

FAQs, companion products and other useful Project information can be seen at 
this web address:  http://www.**--****.com/ 

Hope this helps - please let us know how you get on :)

Yes. Select Format, Bar Styles and remove Resource Names from critical and 
noncritical bars. Better yet create separate Views for each report you need 
to produce rather than formatting and re-formatting the same View.

1.Ability to change Gantt Bar color based on Resource Name

Is there a way to customize project to display different color bars in Gantt 
based on the resource classification (name)

2.Task Summary view: Resource names above gantt bar?

How do I get the resource names to show above the bar in the task summary 
gantt chart view? They appear for all the sub-tasks when summary task filter 
is not applied, but not on the sumary task bar. 

I want to print out a task summarygantt chart view, but I need to see all 
the resources that are assigned to a particular task summary (we are a small 
organization, there are no more than 6 resources assigned to any task). The 
resource name column is also blank at the summary level.

I have tried the gantt chart wizard, but nothing happens in the summary view.

3.Howto change bar color globally for a resource

Hi all,

I'm using MS Project Pro 2002 and want to know if I can do something.
I've got a schedule layed out for a project with resources assigned to
tasks. Is it possible to give a resource (my team members) a
particular bar color so when they look at a project they can
immediately see what tasks are theirs? I can set the bar colors/styles
on a bar by bar basis, but this is a pain. What I'd like is to set a
bar color/style for each resource so when I move resources around, the
bar color/styles follow it. Know what I mean?

Thanks in advance for your help,
Doug Farrell

4.Resource Name Display on Gantt Bars

I have selected to display Resource Names as Gantt Bar 
Text.  However, as my resources are loaded (units) at 85%, 
when the resource name is displayed, the percentage is 
also displayed in brackets next to the resource name (i.e. 
John Doe [85%]).  Is there a way to display the resource 
name w/o the percentage (i.e. John Doe) and maintain the 
85% loading (unit) for the resource?

5.HowDoI hide text under a gantt bar when its rolled up in Project

roll up the subtasks.  I want to display the text for the sub task but NOT 
display text in the rolled up gantt bar.  Any ideas?
