Get to know Easy Projects

One of the most difficult tasks in managing projects is setting accurate due dates. Things change, and sometimes a task will take longer than you expect. That's perhaps not such a big deal—unless there are other tasks depending on this task's completion. Easy Projects makes it simple to reschedule tasks and link them to their dependencies. You can choose a task, select if that task is dependent on this task's start or finish,and set a lag time for how soon before or after the tasks are linked. You can even add multiple dependencies to each task, for an accurate picture of how work needs to proceed—something rather unique to Easy Projects.

That will have your team focused on what must be done next, but what about your clients and project stakeholders? Easy Projects' Guest Portal takes care of that. It shows them a list of their projects you're working on, the tasks you have left and how much have been done on them so far, along with a Twitter-style feed of project updates that you can share. Clients can even add requests, to let you know of extra things they'd like you to focus on in the project.

Easy Projects also helps your team allocate resources effectively. You can see a report of how much time everyone on your team has worked, and then use the resource simulator to see who's schedule is the most open to take on new tasks in the timeframe you need. That way, you can get started on the next thing while still making sure your current projects get done on time.

Need to customize things? Easy Projects includes a dashboard with the widgets you need, to show quickly the info you need most about projects. Even the default project view can be customized to show the project info you need. And if you need to gather other info—perhaps contact info or requests for new features—there's a built-in form tool so you can create forms and gather data right inside your project management system.

If you're struggling to keep track of your task dependencies, or need a better way to make sure everyone knows how projects are going, Easy Projects just might be the tool you need. It's flexible enough that you can turn it into a project tool custom designed for your team needs—one that'll help you share info and see who can take on tasks next automatically.
