Organizations are as unique as people, and each project that an organization manages has its own particular needs. The solution to each new challenge requires a specific set of information, just as each step in managing a project does. You can control what information you see and how it is formatted, whether you want to satisfy your own preferences or meet the specialized needs of a particular project. Almost every aspect of Microsoft Office Project 2003 can be molded to your specifications, including the following:

If you or your organization use outline codes, such as accounting codes to categorize tasks or skill codes to categorize resources, you can customize outline codes in Project 2003 for this purpose. You can adapt these codes to your organization's standards; apply them to project tasks and resources; and then sort, group, or filter information using your custom outline codes.

You can use these customized elements in one project or every project you create. This chapter describes how to customize all these elements and use them in your projects.

Each view gives you a different perspective on your project information. The right view with pertinent data can simplify your project management tasks or uncover potential problems. You can specify which views you see, change the tables and fields that appear in a view, and control how information is categorized and displayed so you can look at your project information the way you want.
