June 2022 Tips and Tricks

For these and more, view Tips and Tricks for June 2022 

Anchor text to a symbol

Is there a way to anchor a freeform text to a symbol or a task row?

Move a note along with the current date

Is it possible to attach a note on the date line so it moves with it as the “date now” is updated?

Vertical link to a symbol on the same task bar

Do you know how you can link to task within the same task bar? I would like to create a vertical link between two symbols on the same row.

Vertical link not working

I have added a couple of vertical links on my schedule but they do not appear.

Trying to find a symbol that is linked to a UID in Microsoft Project

Is there a way to view the unique id’s you have linked in your milestone chart?

Two colors for symbol text

Is it possible to use two different colors at the same time in symbol text?  My symbol text is color coded to show which organization is responsible for each activity.  Responsibility is shared for some activities.  I’d like to make the text half green and half blue.  Is there a way to do that?

Two digits for month and day

I’d like 2 digits for days and months (i.e.: 02/02/2003 and not 2/2/2003). How can I do this?

Work with dense schedules

I am trying to move and better organize the symbols and symbol text on in my schedule, which is very crowded.  Do you have any suggestions?
