Collaborating with Your Project Team

After you set up your enterprise project team, you have powerful methods of project collaboration and communication at your fingertips. Using Project Professional and Project Web Access, you can assign tasks to resources, receive progress updates, and request narrative status reports—all electronically via publication of information to Project Server.

Among other things, this collaboration process automates the gathering and entry of actuals so you don't have to enter actuals on assignments yourself. With the help of your project server administrator, you can set up your team members' timesheets in Project Web Access to enter and submit their actuals on a periodic basis. You can then review these actuals and accept them for incorporation into the project plan.

To keep a close eye on time usage and project availability, you can also track nonproject tasks and time by assigning an administrative project to team members.

If your organization is also set up with Windows SharePoint Services, you can also control project-related documents, track project issues, and manage project risks.
