Start a new plan

Enter the plan title and other properties

As with other Microsoft 365 apps, Project keeps track of several document properties. Some of these properties are statistics, such as how many times the document has been revised. Other properties include information that you might want to record about a plan, such as the project title, the project manager’s name, or keywords to support a file search. Some of these properties are used in views, reports, and page headers and footers when printing. You can view and record these properties in the Properties dialog shown in Figure 3-4.
