Starting with templates
Reinventing the wheel has never been one of my favorite sports, so I’m
grateful that Microsoft provides some convenient project templates. These include
projects by type: for example, an engineering project or office move. Templates
already have many tasks appropriate to the task type created for you.
Figure 1-15 shows the Project Office template. Templates typically contain
sample tasks broken into logical phases, with task durations and dependencies
in place. The templates from Microsoft often include resources, but you can
create your own resources as well as use, edit, or delete the ones provided.
You can open a template from the New Project task pane. To do so, follow
1. Choose File
The New Project task pane appears, as shown in Figure 1-16.
