The smart set-up takes you through the general functionalities and helps get you started on managing your project in no time. If you’re pressed for time, you don’t need to create a whole new plan on your own. You can choose from a variety of templates that are sure to fit your needs. If you’re unable to find that specific tool, or forgot where a toolbar is, do not fret. The Tell Me search bar is an intuitive feature that lets you find what you’re looking for in a jiffy.
Time is money and scheduling saves time. Get access to state of the art tools that help you save every possible second, creating the most efficient and robust project plan. Use familiar charts such as Gantt charts to keep track of progress and reduce the time taken for training. Automation increases efficiency. You can have start and end dates auto-populated, based on the existing dependencies. The Task Inspector is a great tool to figure out what tasks are moving forward quickly and which ones are stuck in the queue. Schedules can get extremely complicated. To create better clarity and understanding, you have access to multiple timelines that can be easily shared. It’s always good to track how far you have progressed and compare it to the actual goal. This can be achieved easily with the help of intuitive baselines.
There are some tasks that have a high priority. Use the Gantt chart to see which tasks are crucial and which need immediate attention. The task relationships can be understood easily with visualised relationships.
Very often, you may come across a scenario in your project where the outcome isn’t certain. You can manage these what-if cases by setting some tasks as inactive and run other tasks, without having to create a whole new project plan for testing. There is nothing worse than not having all team members on the same page. With the task list synchronisation capability, every team member can upload their work in the ShareClient, and it gets updated in the main ProjectClient.
Use familiar tools like Word and PowerPoint and store your project work in handy storage tools such as OneDrive. There are several extras you can get from the Office Store, extending your project management capabilities to solve niche project and business problems.
