Linking with Outlook & alerts for uncompleted tasks? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are wondering if it's possible to do the following with Project (we use Project Professional 2010):

    1. create alerts of some type for uncompleted tasks?

    2. link with Outlook (2010) to send schedule notifications to resources to let them know or remind them that they're scheduled for something, or communicate with their calendars somehow?

     

    Thanks in advance.

    This functionality is only possible if your organization is using Microsoft Project Server 2010.  Assuming you are only using the desktop application and not Project Server 2010, you might be able to achieve this functionality through custom software development by writing a macro in the VBA programming language.  Hope this helps.

  • Macros are way over my head. Oh well - would've been a great feature! Thanks for the response.
