Project Options You Want to Know About

When I teach a Microsoft Project or Project Server class, it’s often the Project Options that gather audience interest early on.  Most of the Options below relate to simple user interface conveniences, but they can really improve usability to otherwise generic out-of-the-box configurations.

Please note this article focuses on Microsoft Project 2010 and will provide Microsoft Project 2010 solutions, but most of them are also available in Microsoft Project 2007.  Options unique to 2010 will be noted.
My first tip is for setting default options:  Close all open projects including Project 1 before going into the Options menu.
