Effectively plan, collaborate and deliver
Microsoft Project Professional gives you a powerful, visually enhanced way to effectively manage a wide range of projects and programs. From meeting crucial deadlines, to selecting the right resources and empowering your teams, this online project management software delivers intuitive experiences in collaborative project management within individuals, teams and the enterprise.
Easier planning with user-controlled scheduling
Planning your project has never been easier. User-controlled scheduling in Project Professional puts you in control and brings together the flexibility and ease of a tool like Microsoft Excel with the power of the Project scheduling engine. Work with summary data initially or drill down into details for more complex phases or projects. This is particularly useful early in planning when details are still unclear or a little fuzzy.
Familiar and intuitive
The Ribbon makes finding and using your favorite tools simpler with graphical menus and a familiar experience to help you easily create and manage projects. Tooltips and contextual guidance provide information and shortcuts so you can accomplish more in less time.
Save time and effort
Save time and effort with familiar and essential functions like text wrapping, filtering, auto-complete, scroll and zoom, and more. Insert columns on the fly - data types are readily identified so that you can quickly and effectively organize and analyze details. Quickly share schedule details through enhanced copy-and-paste, and retain key formatting between Project and other Microsoft Office applications.
Easier to see and share
With a visually enhanced timeline view, you'll have a clearer view of tasks, milestones, and phases. Expanded color palettes and text effects help you make every timeline and plan look their best - and help you to swiftly see and share important dates and deliverables.
Control and deliver
Quickly compare budget versus actual versus forecasted values to measure an initiative's progress with the flexibility of setting multiple baselines. Create high-level time-phased budgets with user-defined categories for costs and labor. Validate budgets against bottom-up estimates built by using labor, material, and cost resources. Control project costs by comparing budgets to completed tasks and forecasted totals. Use built-in earned-value metrics for predictive analysis and integrated performance management.
