 When you look closely at the graphics above , you will see that you can add your own application to Microsoft Project through the info Tab. That is not my primary focus of discussion at this moment . I am more particular about focusing on the area where you have project information and advanced properties.

In looking at the Info Tab in Microsoft Project, the question might be asked: what are some of its use. When you want to add basic information to a project, which tells people what the project set to do and who the Project Manager is. You have to use this section of the info tab. Just click on the Project information , you will now see that it has a drop down arrow which contains ” Project Statistics” and “Advanced Properties”. You can use the Project statistics to see a general overview of your project.

If you closely at my Pop up, we have other tabs besides the Summary Tab, we also have Statistics, Content and Custom Tab. Let’s see if we can look at some of their functions.
