Project 2013 is a comprehensive project management tool for any size of business that can manage anything from simple tasks up to complex projects. Project enables you to control your project work, schedules and finances and manage your project team effectively.
What's new in Project 2013
Easier to get started
Opening Project 2013 takes you to a one-stop center for starting your project. Browse the premade templates, import info from Excel or a SharePoint site, or just click Blank Project to get a clean Gantt Chart.
New graphical reports
Create crisp, colourful, professional reports - add pictures, charts, animation, links and more. Use an entirely new set of pre-installed reports that take advantage of these new capabilities.
Burndown reports show planned work, completed work and remaining work as lines on a graph. They provide an at-a-glance status as to whether your project is on track.
Project 2013 helps you stay in touch with your team members. Just hover over a name and start an IM session, a video chat, an email, or even a phone call. You need to have Lync 2010 or later installed to take advantage of this feature.
Trace task paths
Highlight the link chain - or task path - for any task. When you click a task, all of its predecessor tasks show up in one color and all of its successor tasks show up in another color.
Enhanced sharing and collaboration
Save your Office files to your own SkyDrive or to your organisation¿s site. From there you can access and share your Project schedules, Excel spreadsheets and other Office files. And if you have Project Online, you can access a full version of Project from almost anywhere, even on PCs that don¿t have Project 2013 installed. All you need is an internet connection and a PC running Windows 7 (or later).
