Same project task/Multiple location RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a situation where i have a common project template in terms of tasks...this project is to be rolled out across several locations each of which have different timelines...i want to track progress of this project in a cross tab of location vs task with the data field as finish variance and % complete. Please help

    Do i need to use enterpeise server for this? or is it possible in a standalone ms project??

  • Hello Shivn747

    It would be much easier if all the data was in a project server database, and thus you can aggregate data over multiple projects.  You can also do it from MS project professional, but each time you run a report you will need copies of all the various open at the same time.  Reporting will require more effort, using macros and possibly pushing data into a central location.

    Anything is possible using computers, the question really is "How much effort does it take and how much time?"
