User Documenation RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are greatly interested in this due to its web client. We are a small IT shop that needs to track its projects. We have this installed and are looking around but we're not project manahgers. Is there any kind of getting started or user docs for 2010 ?

  • We have a wealth of high level information at: http://www.microsoft.com/project/2010/en/us/default.aspx with a lot of detail here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc303399(office.14).aspx

    Hope this helps!

  • Thanks we found that. But we are looking for docs that tell us how to add a resource to a project, etc.. User stuff, not the techinal installation instructions, we know how to do that. We just are stumbling around trying to use the product.

  • mrrrl:
     
    You can use our Managing Enterprise Projects using Microsoft Office Project Server 2007, where most of the day to day operations of 2007 and 2010 are similar. Also keep in mind that you cannot upgrade from the Beta to Production, so be careful how much you invest in the system lest you end up with too much rework. Of course, 2010 has a lot of new features that are not included in our 2007 book, but most of the content carries forward to 2010. It will certainly get you up and running projects, but it won't show you how to use the demand management piece.

  • I second what Gary says.  I used msprojectexperts.com books when I got started with MS Project.  These books walk you thru the steps to accomplish many tasks required.  All the books are good but the administrative book is by far the best I have seen so far.

  • Thanks. So that leads me to ask this. Would we be better off installing Project 2007 Server? As any projects we have will transfer over into Server 2010 when it comes out as RTM and there is more documentation. We not miss the new features in 2010. If so should I just start again with SharePoint 2007 and Project Server 2007. Sounds like I answered my own question.

    TIA, you have been very helpful.

  • It's a good idea if you want to go to produciton immediately. Be sure to deploy on Win 2008 64bit and SQL Server 64bit edtions so that you can easily upgrade the system. Do not use 32bit OS or components if you want a smooth path to 2010.

  • Hey mrrrl - feel free to let me know if you disagree with something being marked as answered - just post to the thread rather than unmarking. Otherwise you leave the thread open and slow down reviewers.
