Project Viewer Lite is a tool directed at staff and project stakeholders who need to be informed of aspects of the
project plan and execution, throughout the project lifecycle. The project viewer can be utilized prior and during
project reviews, in progress tracking, initiating change requests, and other actions that have direct bearing on the project, whilst
preserving the project integrity and full retention of control by the Project Manager.
Project Viewer Lite has been designed for ease and speed of use and accuracy of rendered information.
The traditional Windows user interface is employed, as it offers direct and unimpeded access to and use of the available
commands without claiming additional screen space or need to follow complicated workflows.
Initially, Project Viewer Lite was conceived as a viewer for MSPDI (MS Project Data Interchange)
.xml format, and was gradually extended to handle .mpp files as well. Recently added (v1802)
functionality allows using actual viewing data from .mpp files, rather
than rely only on the predefined views in Project Viewer Lite. One can view 2007 .mpp files, as if they were
produced using MS Project 2010, 2013 or 2016, and in any other combinations of MS Project editions (provided the respective views
are defined or imported by the user from other .mpp files). Imported views from MS Project
can be modified, configured and saved for later use. Included in Project Viewer Lite are views from MS Project 2016. User configured
views allow maintenance of common look of the displayed data for all project stakeholders and staff involved.
Project Viewer Lite has been designed for speed and ease of use.
Its resemblance to MS Project paves the way to a wealth of widely available applicable
information and tutorials. One can use the searh tool above to get information about terms and
parameters of MS Project that have been made available in Project Viewer Lite in any language that MS Project supports.
This Viewer retains its traditional Windows user interface as it offers direct and
unimpeded access to and use of all available commands.
Present day project management often involves cross-border and cross-language project planning and project execution.
A unique feature included in Project Viewer Lite is the ability to dynamically switch between languages according
to a project stakeholder or staff understanding and preference. The set of built in user interface languages is growing and
presently includes English, French, German, Russian, Croatian, Serbian and Slovenian (as new terms are added some text may appear in English).
