Once you have your project file set up (with your start date and project calendar), you can begin putting together your project. This chapter deals with the driving force behind most projectstasks. In this chapter, we are going to enter and organize a list of tasks to be completed in the project. We'll also begin to estimate the duration of tasks, which will give us an idea of how long the project will take.
Diving into a blank project can be very intimidating. Just thinking of all that needs to be done to complete a project, much less setting it up, can feel completely overwhelming. But as long as you take it step by step, Project will do all the calculating and scheduling for you, making the process much more manageable.
