Using macros to automate processes

You can use macros to automate repetitive tasks so that you have to spend less time performing these tasks manually. For example, you could use macros to automate:

  • The creation of monthly progress reports.
  • The adjustment of all your cost and income rates by a specific percentage.
  • Rescheduling and resource levelling to take place overnight when nobody is using the system.
  • Importing resource details from external databases, such as a payroll system.

You write macros using Visual Basic® (VB) or Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). Visual Basic for Applications is supplied with Powerproject.

Macros are not available in Powerproject SaaS.
