GroupReady Project - Professional Project Management for the Entire Office
Click here if you're looking for our Scheduling Software
an easier way to manage your projects
Here's how it works:
Step 1: Make a list of tasks
Identify all the activities required for the project. The Outline view makes this easy - just type in the tasks one after another. You can reorganize items by dragging them and you can create summary tasks to group similar tasks together.
The object of this step is to identify relatively small specific pieces of work. Once you've identified all of the activities required to execute the project, you're ready for the next step.
Step 2: Put tasks in the right order
Decide how much time you want to allocate for each task and use the Timeline view to arrange items in their proper sequence. If some tasks can't be started until other ones are completed, you can create a link between them to reflect this. The advantage of creating these links, is that the second task automatically moves with the first one. Once you have your project laid out in Timeline view, you'll be able to see how long the whole project will take and make adjustments if needed.
Step 3: Assign the tasks
Now it's time to assign responsibility for each task in the project using the Assigned To view. By default, it assigns each item to the person that created the project, but you can easily delegate tasks to other users just by dragging the task to a name in the list.
Step 4: Schedule the work
Schedule the work using the Scheduler view. You can bring up schedules for each person involved in the project and drag tasks to the appropriate time slots. These schedule items link to the GroupReady Scheduler.
Step 5: Track progress
As work progresses on your project, you can easily see how things are going. As tasks are completed, they can be checked off and everyone involved in the project can see the update immediately. There's also a project Hotlist that shows all critical tasks assigned to you and a 'quick add' feature for those times when a task comes to mind.
