How do I export a gated PowerSteering project to MS Project?
When it comes to gated projects, our recommended approach is to first create the project in PowerSteering using the appropriate gated project template, then export it to MS Project for scheduling. This lesson outlines the steps to export a gated project from PowerSteering to MS Project.
1. Click Export to MSP
2. Select MS Project Version
- Select the MS project version that you use.
- Click Submit.
Prior to Microsoft Project 2010, there was no correspondence between PowerSteering and MS Project regarding PowerSteering. PowerSteering provides a manually scheduled option and Microsoft Project did not have a manually scheduled option. On export to Microsoft Project, PowerSteering converted manually scheduled items to MSO (must start on). There was no manually scheduled attribute to import from Microsoft Project.
In Microsoft Project 2010, there is equivalent manual scheduling behavior on both sides of the import/export. PowerSteeringâs export to Microsoft Project exports manually scheduled items as such. And, PowerSteering imports the Microsoft Project manually scheduled attribute.
Note: Once this selection has been made, it will become the default for all MS Project exports.
