Review

Microsoft Project 2013 is a management application that belongs to the MS Office productivity suite. It provides all the necessary tools to plan, manage and analyze corporate projects in a professional way. Microsoft Project 2013 is a helpful tool when it comes to giving an insight into the current situation of your business or company to your stakeholders or team-mates. In this version, synchronization with SharePoint services has been enhanced, and the interface has been redesigned. One of the greatest points of this management software is the fact that it is compatible with other programs in the Office suite, such as Excel, Exchange or Visio, and it can be used as a complement to these.

However, its most remarkable characteristic is its support for collaborative projects. On the one hand, this is possible thanks to cloud services integration. On the other hand, it’s thanks to its IM (Instant Messaging) built-in client, as it allows you to make a call, make a video call, or send an email to communicate with the others. To take advantage of this functionality you should have previously downloaded and installed Lync too.

Getting started

Getting started in Microsoft Project 2013 doesn’t mean you will be dropped on a blank page. You are taken to a module in which you can browse pre-defined templates, import a spreadsheet from Excel or a document from SharePoint, or just select Blank Project if you want to get an empty Gantt Chart. If your intention was to open a previous project, you can do it here too.

This management program comes along with a wide variety of reports and dashboards you can use to visualize your project’s overall health, or track particular parts of it. You can choose dashboard reports, resource reports, costs reports, progress reports, or pick a report template to create your own one. For instance, with progress reports you can organize tasks, while with costs reports you can view cashflow or cost overruns. You can choose different view modes to visualize data, as well as having the freedom to customize the shapes and style of your graph or chart.

Similarly, you can indent tasks to show hierarchy, or link them in order to show their relationship and dependency. Once you link them, every change made in one will affect the other. As well as that, you can add pictures, transitions, animations, timelines and links to your chart; everything that can help to make it more attractive and accessible is usually welcomed. For example, you can highlight the path of every task with a different color, to better identify in which stage of the process you are located, or to know which the critical ones are.

Highlighting tasks with different colors is a good way to visually group them
