Synchronizing with Microsoft Project
Some engineering organizations use resource planning tools such as Microsoft Project to develop project plans. Each line item in such a project plan corresponds to an engineering task in Release Manager.
For engineering organizations that use Microsoft Project to manage project plans, Release Manager offers Microsoft Project integration. Engineering tasks can be tracked in Microsoft Project and then synchronized with Release Manager, eliminating the need to enter and update the same information in both applications.
For information on setting up the required mappings and synchronizing Microsoft Project with Siebel Business Applications, see the chapter about Microsoft Project integration in Siebel Professional Services Automation Guide.
