Well… I have set a goal to learn Microsoft Project by the end of the year, which gives me through… <checks calendar>… Monday.
I run a decent number of projects simultaneously, and want to be able to publicly report on progress to stakeholders through SharePoint.
Project has lists, SharePoint has lists.Project has Gantt Charts, SharePoint has Gantt Charts.Project has Calendars, SharePoint has Calendars.
Should be a perfect fit, but as far as I can tell (and I am likely missing something stupidly obvious), I cannot sync Project and SharePoint without Project Server. <sigh…> Looks like I have a weekend in front of me to ramp up on a server product as well as Project itself. Nice!
So, my weekend will be spent with my good friends Carl Chatfield (I took a class from him once) and Teresa Stover, authors of the two following books.
I also see that we have a series of free eBooks on setting up Project Server. They are all in Times New Roman (which I am not a big fan of), but if you open them up in Word 2007, click on "Change Styles" on the main toolbar, and then select "Style Set" and "Word 2007". That will change the fonts to Cambria for the headings, and Calibri for the body text. They will look MUCH better J
