Project 2016 has all the functionality and features
you're used to, with some added enhancements and new
Here are some of the top new features you'll find in Project 2016:
With Project 2016, not only can you leverage multiple timelines to illustrate different phases or categories of work, but you can also set the start and end dates for each timeline separately, to paint a clearer overall picture of the work involved.
Some resources have limited availability, and may
have their time scheduled by a resource manager. With
Project Professional 2016 and Project Online, project
managers and resource managers can negotiate an
agreement, called a resource engagement, to make sure
that resources are being used appropriately and
effectively throughout your organization.
Important: Resource engagements only work if you're using Project Professional 2016 or Project Pro for Office 365, connected to Project Online. If you are not connected to Project Online, the resource engagements functionality will be hidden from view. Project Standard 2016 does not include resource engagements.
How does it work? When a resource manager sets up the enterprise resource pool in Project Online, he or she can identify some resources as requiring approval to be assigned to projects.
When a project manager decides to use one of these resources on a project, he or she submits an engagement request with the date range for when the resource is needed, and either a certain percentage of that resource's time during that date range, or a set number of hours during that date range.
Once the engagement is finalized, the project manager has the go-ahead to assign that resource to tasks in the project.
You'll notice a text box on the ribbon in Project 2016 that says Tell me what you want to do. This is a text field where you can enter words and phrases related to what you want to do next and quickly get to features you want to use or actions you want to perform. You can also choose to get help related to what you're looking for.
There are now three Office themes that you can apply to Project 2016: Colorful, Dark Gray, and White. To access these themes, go to File > Options > General, and then click the drop down menu next to Office Theme.
