Benefits and Description

To be consistent and interoperable with Microsoft Project and to allow the definition of more detailed project plans, Enhanced Project Planning allows you to enter activity durations in units of time from minutes to months. You may also enter fractional portions of time units rounded to two digits.

All four precedence relationships common to Microsoft Project are now supported: Start-to-start, Start-to-finish, Finish-to-finish and Finish-to-start, with additional lead and lag values.

The overall usability for creating plans has improved. Multiple activities or milestones can be inserted in a single operation at a pre-selected location within the project plan. Cut and paste tools are available to move multiple plan items to a new location.
