I am trying to remember my Project Management class from college many years ago.
I have been part of several IT projects where multiple entities are involved. For these projects (or cutovers or planned downtimes) I will create a checklist using Google spreadsheet or Excel. The activities in the checklist typically start in the very early morning hours (typically 1:00am, depending on the customers time zone).
I have been re-familiarizing myself with MS Project and it's alternatives (ProjectLibre, etc). I am copying the information from my checklist into MS Project but I'm trouble specifying days and times that are outside the regular business day.
Is there a work around? Is MS Project the correct tools, or should I stick with spreadsheets? Am I using a hammer when I should be using a screwdriver?
