Microsoft doesn’t do it every year but next year they will once again be holding a conference for Microsoft Project.  This usually signals that Microsoft has a new version to show us and, yes, it’s fairly certain we’ll be hearing all about Project version 15 when the conference rolls around. The conference is March 19-22, 2012 in Phoenix. For registration information go to: www.msprojectconference.com Oh, and will I be there?  You bet.

TimeControl is now available as a mobile interface. As of version 6.2, TimeControl will now include a mobile interface specifically designed for iPhones, Blackberry’s, Android and Windows 7 Mobile devices. The web-application requires no purchase of additional software and there is nothing to install or download. Users will simply point their smartphone’s browser to the special URL that is part of every TimeControl and they’ll see the new interface.
