Changing Over Workbench to Microsoft Project (Pitfalls, Lessons Learned, Transitional Advice)

Hi All,

 

It's becoming increasingly likely in our business that we'll be changing over from Open Workbench to Microsoft Project simply due to the preference of our Project Managers. I have heard that it's not recommended to change over which software is being used for in-flight projects, which means I know there will be a transitional period. Not sure if this true - does anyone know the specifics on this?

 

I was also wondering if anyone else has been in a situation in their work where they've lead a transition from one to the other, and if they identified any issues or ran into anything unexpected during the transitional period. I know it's as easy as changing the Project Scheduler attribute, but I want to make sure there's not a lot more to it trying to get projects (we have over 100 active) changed over.

 

Thanks for any helpful advice or comments!

 

Matthew
