What’s new in Project 2019?

You no longer have to remember the ID of the task you want to link to. Instead, when you select a cell in the Predecessors column, and then select the down arrow, you'll see a list of all the tasks in your project. The task hierarchy and order match your project exactly, making it easy for you to scroll to the right task and then select the check box beside it. You can also select tasks from the same kind of drop-down in the Successors column.

Communicating project progress just got easier! Timeline bars can now be labeled, and task progress is shown right on the tasks themselves, making it simple to quickly illustrate your plan and the work in progress when sharing status.

With long lists of tasks, it can be difficult to know what a task is indented under in the overall project plan. The Task Summary Name field is a read-only field that shows the name of a task's summary task. Adding this field as a column in your Task view can help clarify your project's structure. To add this field, right-click the title of a column (to the right of where you want to add the field), select Insert Column, and then choose Task Summary Name from the drop-down list.



Project 2019 helps you keep your projects organized and on track with tools that make it easy to get started, quickly plan, and complete projects on time and on budget.

Keep your projects, resources, and teams organized and on track. With Project Professional 2019, you can easily plan and collaborate on projects from virtually anywhere.
