If you are not connected to Project Online, the resource engagements functionality will be hidden from view. Project Standard does not include resource engagements. How does it work? When a resource manager sets up the enterprise resource pool in Project Online, he or she can identify some resources as requiring approval to be assigned to projects. The resource manager reviews this request, and can accept it, suggest changes, or reject it.
Once the engagement is finalized, the project manager has the go-ahead to assign that resource to tasks in the project. This is a text field where you can enter words and phrases related to what you want to do next and quickly get to features you want to use or actions you want to perform. In , Microsoft slashed the rights of users running non-subscription Office when it announced that perpetual-licensed versions of Office will be barred from connecting to Microsoft's cloud-based services, including hosted email Exchange and online storage OneDrive for Business after Oct.
Under the new rules, owners of a perpetual license for Office can use those services only during the first half of their year support lifecycle, the portion Microsoft dubs "mainstream. By releasing Office this year, Microsoft will give enterprises a year or so to migrate from Office or an earlier edition before the cloud service cutoff.
Will Microsoft sell a one-time purchase version of Office after Office ? We don't think so. Rather than the usual decade of support — the first five in what Microsoft dubs "Mainstream," the second five as "Extended," which provides security-only updates — Office will get only seven years.
The simultaneous retirement of the two perpetually-licensed suites is the strongest signal yet that Microsoft plans to shut down the one-time purchase option after Office The late deadline will let Microsoft sell Office for years — during the Mainstream stretch, most likely — while hedging about a successor throughout.
But it can still give enterprise customers a multi-year heads-up that it's the last of its kind and that those customers need to move to subscriptions. Is it true that Office won't work on Windows 7?
Or even Windows 8. Yes, that's true. Or maybe, no, it's not. Along with its announcement that Office 's support will run out after seven years, Microsoft also painted the system requirements with a broad brush.
The requirements are substantially more restrictive than Office 's. According to Spataro's Feb. No love for Windows 7 which retires in January , or a year-and-change after Office 's debut or Windows 8. Those two older OSes will have to be satisfied with Office which, again, doesn't fall off support until October Spataro did not offer an explanation for the support limitation.
Previously, like when Microsoft said that Office could not be used to connect to the company's own cloud services after Oct. From Microsoft's perspective, the same reasoning could be applied to this ruling. The cynical among us would instead see it as another push to move everyone onto Windows 10 ASAP by limiting the functionality of prior editions of Windows.
But although Microsoft was crystal clear that it would not support Office on Windows 7 or 8. For all we know, Office may work, perhaps not perfectly, on the older OSes. Even if that were the case, however, Microsoft can easily bar Office security updates from reaching Windows 7 or 8.
