Having already learnt how to create and edit basic plans in Microsoft Project, you find that you need to record additional information that the Standard Project Template does not accommodate for. To overcome this, you will learn how to customise all areas of Microsoft Project, exchange project plan data with other applications and reuse project plan information. You will also look at creating custom reports using both the built in Reporting tools plus Power BI.
