Although the table in the Gantt Chart view is the most efficient place to create a task list, some people prefer other views. Many project managers were trained to create a project plan by drawing a network diagram. Others like to split the screen and add the task form or Task Details form to the Gantt Chart view to facilitate adding resources and task linking as they enter the tasks. Instructions for using the other fields in these views are given in later chapters.
If you enter or change task data in any view, all other views that display tasks show changed values. The views are just alternative ways of displaying the information in the task table of the project database.
