Abbreviations Tool

Task Descriptions from P6 and MS Project are too descriptive

Abbreviations are a great way to shorten those long task descriptions from your schedule import into something more concise that fits inside shorter task bars.

When you first install TimeTable Visio you’ll get a default abbreviations.csv file which includes almost 100 phrases and words with their corresponding abbreviations. This .csv can be copied and modified, and ultimately imported into your TimeTable Visio Project to automatically re-label your tasknames. You can (and probably should) keep separate CSV files for different projects.

Remember, hovering your mouse over a task will always show you its original name, and you can always reset the Task Label.
