Before you watch your first video you need to know three things!
1. This is a walk-through and not a stand-alone video lesson
The walk-through is intended to be used only with an e-book or paper book. Read and work through the printed lesson first. Only watch the video walk-through if you have difficulty with it.
2. Video walk-throughs do not have a sound track
Reading out the lesson steps (shown in the captions) wouldn't add any value. If a wordy narrative was added it would bloat the walk-through and make it less useful for its intended purpose.
3. Make sure that you use the interactive transcript and e-book button
Jump straight to the step you need to see using the interactive transcript. window. Just click on the step you need. Play with the other buttons too - you'll never have seen some of the features our player has before.
OK - I’ve got it! Don't show this again.

Lesson: Lesson 3-10 Use date offsets to manage projects using the scheduling equation Excel project management template tutorial using date offsets and the scheduling equation.  Thumbnail for lesson 3-10 of the Excel 2016 Expert Skills video tutorial.

A simple Excel project management template is created in this video lesson using the scheduling equation Time=Work/Units. You'll create a project schedule by offsetting dates in an Excel 2016 worksheet. The lesson explains the principles of project management and scheduling, and then uses the date serial number skills acquired earlier in this session to create a simple project plan with three finish-to-start dependencies between tasks. This scheduling worksheet enables you to assign work days and units of labour to a project and automatically calculate the end dates of each task and of the entire project.
