The Microsoft Project and TimeLog Project integration offers the best of both worlds.
Schedule projects in Microsoft Project – manage
them in TimeLog Project
TimeLog’s integration feature for Microsoft Project is aimed at supporting companies who wish to combine Microsoft Project’s simple scheduling and project segmentation tools with TimeLog Project’s user-friendly time registration, contract management and invoicing features. TimeLog Project’s quick file integration ensures that newly created projects do not need to be recreated. Events, milestones, time schedules, budgets and allocated resources can be transferred at a few clicks of a button.
Fast, easy transfer
The project manager creates projects as normal in Microsoft Project. Once the project is ready for transfer to TimeLog Project, a macro in Microsoft Project converts the project to an XML file. This file is then imported into TimeLog Project and linked to a specific customer, leaving you to track your time for each project event. Once created, all adjustments and project changes are made in TimeLog Project.
Get the best of both worlds
For years, project-based organisations have used Microsoft Project due to its efficient project segmentation, Pert diagrams and Gantt charts to manage dependencies, calculate critical paths and illustrate deadline management.
In terms of schedule-phase retrieval of data in progress, time consumption, value creation, invoicing and project management, however, Microsoft Project is challenged.
With the integration feature, you can still use the tool to schedule, segment and visualise your projects as well as let TimeLog Project handle data retrievals and invoicing. Employees not familiar with Microsoft Project as a project management tool simply use the TimeLog Project module instead.
No consultants needed
Microsoft Project integration is free of charge and does not require setup procedures or technical know-how. Simply click Import from the Microsoft Project interface in TimeLog Project, download the MSP template file and use it to create your project. You’re now off to a flying start.
