PRIMAVERA P6 VERSION 7

DOWNLOADING PRIMAVERA PRODUCT DOCUMENTATION

ELECTRONIC ACCESS TO PRIMAVERA REFERENCE GUIDES

DOWNLOAD THE PDF HERE

Oracle|Primavera documentation is an essential reference point for anyone who uses the software on a regular or casual basis.  The searchable Reference and Administrator Guides contain over 1000 pages of categorized knowledge related to using the software and maintaining the technical environment to support the Primavera Solution.

In our experience, many users and field level technicians are unaware of this documentation and the wealth of information contained therein.  This month’s Tech-Tip provides step by step procedures for electronically downloading both guides from the Oracle E-Delivery Website.

Navigate to the Oracle E-Delivery Website, select your language of choice and click Continue.

Complete the requested fields, as identified below.

Completely review the Terms and Conditions listed on the Oracle E-Delivery Webpage.

Upon review and consent, accept the Terms and Conditions by clicking Continue.

Browse for your Oracle Solution by clicking the dropdown and select Primavera Applications.

Select your Platform.  If you do not know what platform your solution is deployed on, select Microsoft Windows 32-Bit.  The guides you’ll be downloading are not platform specific.  Therefore, for the purpose of accessing the User/Administrator Guides, the platform type is not relevant.

Click Go.

Carefully select your Product.  In this example, I am downloading the Primavera P6 Professional Project Management (version 7.0) Media Pack for Microsoft Windows. Once you have selected the correct product, click Continue.

Select Primavera P6 Documentation and click Download.

Save the file locally.

Browse to the folder where you saved the file and extract the data from the .zip file.  The User Guides for Primavera P6 v7 can be found by drilling down into the following folders:

  1. P6 70 Documentation,
  2. English,
  3. Product Manuals
