Microsoft Project 2013 Standard - Instant License Features
All the Best from Previous Editions, Plus Far More
Microsoft Project 2013 Standard has inherited a great set of features that it has kept intact for new users. At the same time, it’s added some major upgrade capabilities that are game-changers for those looking to get more from their project management software. The two points come together to create the best Microsoft Project edition ever released.
The features found in Microsoft Project 2013 Standard - Instant License include:
The best interface for a project management program: This is true for all Microsoft Office related programs, but it is of particular importance with Microsoft Project. Project management is complicated enough without needing to struggle with the tools provided by your software. With the Ribbon, those tools are well organized and easy to find, while Backstage makes it easier to preview projects, share them, print them, or encrypt them.
Wizards and templates: One of the most important aspects of Microsoft Project 2013 Standard is that it makes the work easier for you. There are wizards to help you set up calendars without any struggle, as well as numerous templates for your projects, so you can save time on the setup side of your work.
More report options and report templates: Speaking of templates, one of the major upgrades in Microsoft Project 2013 Standard is improvements to report templates. There are now more templates and report options to better relate all the most important information about your project development. The 2013 edition includes a Burndown report among other new options.
New ability to follow task history: With the new ability to trace your task paths backward, you can follow a task back from predecessor to predecessor, with each task highlighted in a different color. This allows you to get a better understanding of how those tasks have evolved over time.
More integration into Office: Microsoft Project has always been part of the Microsoft Office family (though never included in the Office suite), but it is increasingly interconnected with those programs in useful ways. For instance, users can copy and paste content back and forth between Project and other Office programs. This enables much faster sharing of data between programs.
Advanced sharing capabilities: Microsoft Project 2013 Standard allows you to take full advantage of the cloud and your network by making it easier to share projects through SharePoint or SkyDrive. It’s easy to save and spread information straight from the program.
Communicate within the program: Developing a project often requires discussion with other members of your team. That can now be done within Project if you also have Lync installed. You can send instant messages, video chat, email, or call a phone, all from within the program.
