Project Tracking Timeline PPT

Hi Matt,

I found a reporting template from my prior workplace and repurposed it for our Sharepoint project.

It’s a .PPT file and you just edit it as needed.

It’s “dummy” text right now with “Dummy” tasks and task duration.

But you can kind of get the idea of how this was used at my prior workplace.

I’m sure there are better project management tools out there… (maybe even built into sharepoint itself!?)

However for now this might be a useful tool for looking forward.

A next step might be to flesh out the template with some of the material we generated yesterday.

Also, I just arbitrarily made it a six month timeline (Nov. to April) to neatly reflect the time remaining on my appointment.

I kind of doubt that Cindy will want the entire thing to take 6 months, although it is a “nice round number.”
