MS Project 2021 Standard - the latest version of the project management software as a purchase version
Project 2021 Standard is the latest version of Microsoft's versatile project management software, designed primarily for SMEs and the self-employed to design, control and finally document business projects. For this purpose, the application offers comprehensive functions that are necessary for the differentiated control of all phases and components. For this purpose, it also offers many typical templates that represent all the essential processes that play an important role in the management of all the tasks and phases that arise, complemented by many practical features that enable efficient work on one or more projects.
MS Project 2021 Standard Edition thus meets all the requirements for successful portfolio, risk and document management, including the central administration of resources and time recording. The pre-installed Gantt charts with several integrated schedules, among other things for a faster understanding of the various task relationships, offer clarity, especially for complex projects; for reporting on the status quo and after completion, further integrated reports are available, which clearly provide essential findings and information in communication with other participants.
For which target group was MS Project 2021 Standard developed?
The Standard Edition of Microsoft Project 2021 was developed precisely for those users who usually design various projects on their own and manage them across all phases and details, which is often the case in particular for self-employed persons and small to medium-sized companies. Like previous versions, this standard edition of MS Project does not offer integrated synchronization with Microsoft SharePoint or Project Server, but it does have all the necessary functions - including business intelligence tools - to control the typical areas of project planning and management: the creation of project schedules, cost planning, differentiated administration of tasks, and ongoing and final reporting.
Wiresoft already offers the Microsoft Project 2021 Standard Edition as used software in the form of a single license as a purchase version - and at a significantly lower price - contact our team and find out immediately when it will be available for you.
Also find out about all other Microsoft applications available in the Wiresoft Software online store, which you can also buy as Used Software offered at a reduced price, as well as Microsoft programs compatible with Project 2021 Standard, such as Windows 10. The following overview informs you about the most important optimizations and features of the new MS Project 2021 Standard Edition.
What can MS Project 2021 Standard do?
Visually, Project 2021 Standard already offers a clearer, more concentrated desktop interface that stands out from older versions. The "Colored", "Dark Gray" and "White" designs, which are also known from Office, are available here, whereby the latter in particular enable a focused working atmosphere.
New projects can be created in MS Project 2021 Standard with just a few clicks, even by inexperienced users, because a large selection of typical templates for common project types is available; alternatively, professionals can also use a neutral, empty Gantt chart. Data and task lists can be easily imported into Project from Excel, Word, Outlook or PowerPoint, retaining the appropriate formatting and outlines.
Easier project creation in Project 2021 Standard
In addition to the standard templates and an empty Gantt chart (bar view), Project 2021 Standard provides many other templates, such as the network diagram (flowchart) for special projects, as well as views as a form, sheet (table) or depending on the use (columns) to display a project, as well as other extensive options such as various filters to clearly display individual tasks and resources including their links as well as assignments depending on the desired aspect.
Structuring and linking project tasks
In Project 2021 Standard, tasks can also be imported into a bar chart using the task mask, which also supports the simultaneous addition of several tasks, including the assignment of the respective resources as well as the relationships. Tasks can be linked to each other, for example, via the drop-down menu, and this option is also available via the "Collective task name" field in the task table. For each time axis, start and end dates can be specified separately. Time axis bars can be labeled and the progress of the task can be displayed, which provides more clarity about the tasks involved.
For the display of hierarchies within a project, individual tasks can also be given a positive or negative indent by means of the tab key; changes are then automatically applied to all the relevant tasks, which is particularly important for more complex project schedules. Individual tasks in a project can also be linked together as desired in order to display them in a relationship. To do this, simply select the appropriate cell in the "Predecessor" column to display all associated tasks and activate the appropriate one.
Other important areas in MS Project Standard 2021
MS Project 2021 Standard also has all the tried-and-tested features for portfolio management as well as resource management and report generation, in some cases with additional optimizations.
Portfolio management, one of the most important components of MS Project 2021 Standard, records all projects and monitors their progress. This means that project managers always have an overview of the current status and can react immediately if a project is not going according to plan, e.g. if certain tasks have not yet been completed according to the schedule, costs are running out of control or resources are not available or are running short. Due to the independent updating, the current status can be displayed immediately with a single click.
Thanks to the connection to Power BI, budget management in MS Project 2021 Standard Edition has detailed display options for analysis, including suggestions for improvements.
Resource management in MS Project 2021 Standard allows detailed, clearer and therefore more efficient planning and management of the resources involved thanks to the integrated tools and features. Here, the various types are differentiated according to "labor", "material" and "costs", which are managed centrally via the resource pool, especially for cross-project planning, and precisely assigned to individual tasks; this allows restrictions on their availability in terms of time as well as cost limits to be taken into account and risks regarding the utilization of manpower and overloads to be avoided.
Report generation in MS Project Standard 2021
An essential aspect of Agile project management in particular is the creation of reports to visualize project data for specific purposes - to illustrate the status quo of an ongoing project, or to share important insights with others after its completion. Users will find a selection of typical report templates for the most common project types available in Project 2021 Standard, which can be further enhanced with graphics, images and charts. Project data can be provided in .PDF, .XPS, .CSV, .XML as well as Microsoft Excel workbook formats, in addition to formats such as Project 2007.
Hardware requirements for Microsoft Project 2021 Standard
