Zoom in, out and move using these great shortcuts in the Microsoft Project Gantt Chart timescale. The timescale in the Gantt Chart view appears on the right side and displays units of time.
In newer versions of Microsoft Project, you have the option of scheduling tasks using manual or auto scheduling. In earlier versions, Microsoft Project used auto scheduling which takes advantage of Project’s scheduling engine to schedule tasks.
Timelines are a great way to view key tasks and milestones in a project. You can add tasks to a timeline and then format it any way you’d like. Copy a timeline into an email or Word or PowerPoint file to present the timeline.
Tables are a core component of Microsoft Project. They appear in many views and display specific fields available in Project. The default tables that appear in the Tables drop-down menu on the View tab include …
With Visual Reports, you can export data to either Excel or Visio from Microsoft Project. You can access the Visual Reports button on the Report (2013 or 2016) or Project (2010) tab.

You can keep text together in several ways in Word. If you want to keep words or characters together, you can use nonbreaking spaces or nonbreaking hyphens or dashes and insert them using a dialog box or a keyboard shortcut. If you want to keep lines or paragraphs together on the same page, you can apply settings in the Paragraph dialog box (which can be built into styles if you use styles).
During a PowerPoint slide show, you can change your mouse into a laser pointer to focus attention on a specific area on your slide. You can show or hide the built-in laser pointer using keyboard shortcuts or by using the context menu.
You can add audio in PowerPoint from a file on your PC or from a shared drive. Audio is played during a slide show and you can insert music, sound clips, or voice recordings. Since audio files are copied into PowerPoint presentations by default, they can increase file size and may need to be compressed. To play audio, your computer must be equipped with a sound card and speakers.
