Learn how to sync tasks to MS Project so your project schedule can receive input from actual resources doing the work. If employees have input into your project schedule, it stands a better chance of matching reality and not becoming stale and irrelevant. Employees sometimes know their own tasks better than project managers.
The actual resources working on your project may suggest new tasks, and may correct task estimates. That input changes everything. Your project schedule now reflects reality. It contains the actual tasks employees are working on, and better estimates for completion.
Time, materials, and tasks can all be synchronized from Standard Time® to MS Project. Give Standard Time to every employee, and let them enter the tasks they are working on. Let them update task estimates. And let them submit actual hours into their timesheets. All that information feeds into Microsoft Project.
