Hey, we all love our Gantt charts, but as project managers sometimes you don’t want the Gantt chart to be the first thing you see in the morning (ain’t that the truth!)

There are literally dozens of different views you can have in Project 2007… like:

  • Bar Rollup
  • Calendar
  • Descriptive Network Diagram
  • Detail Gantt
  • Gant Chart
  • Levelling Gantt
  • Milestone Date Rollup
  • Milestone Rollup
  • Multiple Baselines Gantt
  • Network Diagram
  • Relationship Diagram
  • Resource Allocation
  • and many many more!

So how can you set one of these views as the default view in Project 2007?

1) Click on the “Tools” menu

2) Select “Options…”

3) On the “View” tab, the very first dropdown is “Default view:”.  Simply select your preferred default view

4) Click “OK”

Now you don’t have your Gantt chart popping up first thing in the morning, the flashbacks to all those bad projects should stop 🙂

‘till next time!
