How to sync and update materials in MS Project. After a sync with MSP, you will see materials and costs in your timesheet. Update them in Standard Time®, and your changes will be sent back up to MS Project.
End users can update materials, and send those changes back to MSP where the project manager sees them. This let's the actual employees doing the work have input into project schedules and materials that project managers have set up for them.
Without this end-user input, project schedules go stale, and no longer represent the actual conditions on the ground. Attempting to update materials and costs verbally almost never works. Employees forget to communicate their updates. But this synchronization technique never fails to update MSP.
