  • 1. Connection from Microsoft Project Professional to Project Server
    HELP!!! This problem is similar to Dima's July 7 dialog. I have Project Server 2003 installed on a computer running Windows SBS 2003. This computer is the domain controller, and it also hosts SQL Server, and Sharepoint Services. All users log in to their client workstations using domain accounts. In IIS Manager, the "ProjectServer" directory has both Anonymous Access and Integrated Windows Authentication enabled. Within that directory, all ASP files have these settings as well, with the exception of LGNINT and LGNINTPJ, which only have Integrated Windows Authentication. I can log in to Project Web Access using the "default" Administrator account. When I try to access the server through project I get the error "You are not authorized to view this page You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied" I can't even get the test connection to work (same error). Any suggestions? -- Mike E.
  • 2. Task Duration Summary
    I am still confused regarding the issue of summing up the duration of the subtasks. In the task tree, the Gantt Chart bar shows 180.3 minutes; whereas, the summary of the tasks at the top level add up to 121.3 minutes. Some of the subtask's duration are zero minutes which I understand since they are overlapping other task, but there are task that clearly do not overlap and their duration time is zero. Any assistance would be helpful
  • 3. Guidance on weekly update process
    I track several software development projects in a single MSP. I only track work & dates, not cost. My MSP is 350+ tasks long, with about 30 resources. After updating actuals each week (week=Sat-Fri) for all resources, I reschedule any uncompleted work to start after the Friday of updated week, then re-level resources. Is the weekly update approach sound? (I don't track costs) I then review my variances from baseline (mostly Work & Finish) and use those findings (et al) in my status reports to senior management. I also report tasks which are / aren't starting / finishing on time. (as compared to start / finish) Although I now have mechanisms in place to monitor ongoing slippages from my baseline, I don't know what features of MSP to best use. What views, filters, columns, etc. Right now, I primarily rely on GANTT and custom filters. Any suggestions would help.
  • 4. Microsoft Project 2005
    Does anyone know where I can get information on Microsoft Project 2005, i.e., what it will have that 2003 doesn't, what it corrects, if anything, etc.? I have done several searches and come up blank. Thanks, Jennifer

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

When I display text under the gantt bar, all of the text gets jumbled when I 
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?
