Tracking Your Project Tasks
It’s always easier to work on a large project one piece at a time. Dividing a
project into a series of smaller tasks helps ensure that your project is moving
along as scheduled. This works even better if you assign the tasks to other
slaves — er, employees — so you can track their progress. The tasks help
you to reach your milestones, which lead to a completed project.
When creating a new task, you can associate it with an existing project. This
association provides the flexibility for you to categorize tasks by project.
Follow these steps to create a new Project Task:
1. Click Business Applications on the Navigation bar of your Office Live
home page and then click Project Manager.
The Project Manager dashboard opens.
2. Click the Project Tasks tab.
The Project Tasks tab opens, as shown in Figure 14-6. The Project Tasks
tab looks a bit different from the other Office Live Workspace and
Business Application pages. The Project Tasks tab contains a Gantt
chart at the top of the page and a list of your tasks beneath it. A Gantt
chart depicts tasks in relation to time, and is often used in planning and
tracking a project.
