With greater flexibility and enhanced customization, the interface for the latest version of Oracle Primavera P6 Professional is a vast improvement over the earlier versions. For experienced users, it will still be familiar territory with nearly all of the expected functionality displayed right up front and ready to go. The interface makes much better use of available real estate, and best of all you can completely customize every Tool Group’s location and its available tools. Awesome.
However, with such flexibility comes a small price; a little learning to do to find where all the new stuff is and what the names of these new Tool Groups are. You need to know this because if you right-click on any of the toolbar areas around the sides of the screen, you get a list of Tool Groups to select from. The problem is; if you don’t know the name for each Tool Group, you’ve no idea what you’re selecting.
P6 Pro to the Rescue
Having frequently wrestled with this myself, I’ve compiled a comprehensive Toolbar Map. It shows you two important things:
- A picture of the Tool Group and its name
- A complete list of every button within those tool groups and their names
Download the Toolbar Map here, print it off and stick it to your wall; share it with friends and colleagues. And let us know if you found it useful or if there is any other information I could add that would be helpful.
Happy interface customization folks!
