RiskyProject Data Sheets

All RiskyProject views, except for the Project Summary view and Project Dashboard, contain data sheets. Data sheets are used to enter and present data in a grid format. Grids are also used in some dialog boxes. All data sheets have similar features.

Data sheets are used to display task information, resources, risks, and results of sensitivity analysis. Data sheets are composed of columns and rows. Each column has specific properties, which represent a specific data type. For example, resource name, resource type, etc. You can customize data sheets to display the columns in any order and any with a title in the column header. See the appendix for a full description of each field.
