  • Hello. I'd like to share a new tool I developed in Excel that can help with P6 bulk updates and mass changes. It is called the P6XL Bridge. It allows the user to manage their P6 schedule data in Excel and get the results live without importing. It uses the SDK in the background. The link is below. I hope it could be of use to you.
