How do I set up task updates for Microsoft Project 2010, 2013 and 2016?

Starting with Microsoft Project 2010, Microsoft buried their "project properties." This made preparing the project for task update in Viewer a little tricky.

  1. Open the project within Microsoft Project.
  2. In the File menu, you should see the option for Info. Select it.
  3. On the right, there is drop-down menu that says Project Information. Select it.
  4. In that menu, select the option for Advanced Properties. Selecting this option should bring up a window that contains the current project properties.
  5. Select the Custom tab.
  6. In the Name field, enter "Steelray Email".
  7. The Type should be Text
  8. The Value will be the intended email address.
  9. Click OK and save the project.
