- ProjectPro CrossLinksPro: This add-in allows program managers to create hundreds or thousands of cross-project links (without the disadvantages of the Links-between-Projects feature) and monitor the performance of these handoffs between the projects in the program. This add-in allows you to create new cross-project links by drag & drop and provides many useful reports on the program. For more info, click here.
- ProjectPro CurvesPro: This add-in provides an S-curve report on you project at the push of a button. It can produce Earned Value reports and Earned Work reports (if you just have a resource-loaded schedule). For more info, click here.
