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.

You can quickly fill blank cells in a range of data in Excel with dashes, zeros or other number or text values. Blank cells can be problematic if you want to use a data set as the source for a pivot table.
You can convert cm to inches (or inches to cm) using formulas with operators or functions in Excel. This is useful since the regional settings on a computer affect the default measurement system used in Excel and other programs.
You can hide comments and notes in Excel workbooks. In addition to adding comments in Excel, there is a little known function called the N function that you can use to enter notes directly within a formula. The N function has been around for a long time so you can use it in older versions of Excel.
