Come join us for an open discussion on P6 usage presented by full time, every day in the chair users. Share with us your questions, problems, and solutions and let us share with you how we have tried to navigate the same issues in our past experiences.
Users of P6, whether they are novice beginners or past gurus of the older versions, may regularly find themselves looking for the various buttons, methodologies, and shortcuts needed to input data, update, or report data out of P6. Either something changed in the software since the last time it was used or the complex human brain just can’t pull the right steps out of past memory. What likely are simple actions are always elusive and impossible to locate when time is of the essence. Some solutions produce the same results; others can be a “night and day” difference. By sheer repetition, full time schedulers are forced to efficiently deal with many of the issues mentioned above and more. Part IT support, part general schedule practice support, and part project management support, help us help you with basic solutions to issues we have been dealing with for a long time.
If you have questions that you would like addressed during the meeting, please help us prepare our presenters accordingly. Please email your questions to one of our Board members so we can pass the information along to our presenters prior to the presentation. Questions can be submitted to our board members at http://www.chicago-aacei.org/contacts.html
