Microsoft Project – seeing notes in Network Diagram

I was recently asked whether notes could be seen in the Network Diagram.

To adapt your network diagram to see notes, first go to Network Diagram view.

On the Network Tools Format tab, in the Format group, click Box.

Click More Templates. Click Edit. Click Cell Layout and change the number of columns to 4. Click Merge blank cells with cell to the left. Click OK.

From the dropdown in the cell to the right of name select ID, move Duration to right of %
Complete, move Finish over to the next cell and Start down a cell. Select Notes from the dropdown in the cell under Name. Change the Limit cell text to: dropdown to 3 lines. Click OK.

 

Click Close; click OK. Repeat for each type of bar to which you want to add notes.
