Microsoft Office Project 2003 offers a plethora of commands to assist project managers with every aspect of managing a project. Menus, toolbars, and keyboard shortcuts provide easy access to commonly used features. However, you might find that the commands you use frequently are not easily available or don't appear on a menu at all, whereas commands you never use stake a prime position. As you use Project 2003 and identify the commands you use the most, you can customize the menus and toolbars to display your favorites. You can also assign keyboard shortcuts to access commands without removing your hands from the keyboard.

Microsoft Project provides forms for entering data into fields. Some forms, such as the Task Entry and Task Details Forms, are off-limits—you can't change them. However, there are several predefined forms you can modify or copy to fit your data entry requirements. You can also build your own forms if your needs are quite specialized.
