Date Format - Forced Time Display Option?

Date Format - Forced Time Display Option?

Date Format - Forced Time Display Option?

I manage a program-wide deployment schedule where start and finish times are critical. When others pull up my schedule, some see only dates because they have their OPTION-TOOLS-VIEW-DATE FORMAT set to dates only.  

Is there an MS Project option or way to force a specific project to display times no matter who pulls it up?

RE: Date Format - Forced Time Display Option?

There is a way to do this without the macro.  It involves modifying the options within the tables as opposed to the over-all MS Project options which is under tools.  Try this:
1. Open your project
2. Go to the View that you want to leverage.  This View will contain the Table you want to leverage.
3. Click on >View, >Table, >More Tables, >Edit
4. In the Table Definition dialogue box, there is a field for Date Format:  Select the date format that you would like all users to see (this could include time)
5. Click on OK, Apply, Save and close.

Now, when any user opens this file and goes to this view, the Start and Finish columns will display the date format just as you set within the Table Definition dialogue box.

Hope this helps!!
