Version Note
This course is taught using Microsoft 2016 software but it is applicable to users of Project 2016 and 2013. Instructors will note any features that are exclusive to 2016. Some additional options were added 2016 such as new options to secure resources, collaborate between the resource manager and the project manager, and show heat maps of resource capacity. These are more advanced features that get little coverage in this course, making this an excellent introduction for users of Project 2013 or 2016.
