Work Breakdown

Breaking down a project into smaller, more manageable tasks is a crucial aspect of effective project management. The work breakdown method involves dividing a project into simpler tasks, such as task milestones, sub-tasks, and task lists to assist in project organisation.

Issue Management

During the maintenance stage of a project, it's essential to keep track of errors and glitches that arise to ensure the project runs smoothly. Creating a list of these issues can help businesses pinpoint the problems that need fixing and prioritise them based on their severity. 

Gantt Chart

When using a Gantt Chart for a project, businesses can visualise the project timeline and track the progress of tasks in a clear and organised manner. This tool then allows the break down of the project into smaller tasks, which can be assigned to team members with specific deadlines.

Portfolio Dashboard

Portfolio Dashboards provide a view of the project, enabling businesses to obtain a detailed visual of how the project is progressing. These dashboards include project updates, budget management, and other essential information to keep track of the project.

Reminders

Businesses can leverage the reminder feature to ensure that everyone is on track with their assigned tasks and deadlines. This feature allows reminders to be set automatically for deadlines and tasks, eliminating the need for manual intervention.

Project Baseline

A project baseline is a valuable tool that allows businesses to visualise the expected progress of their project at each stage. By setting a baseline, they can compare actual progress to the projected timeline and identify any delays or issues that need to be addressed.
Automation

Blueprint

Blueprints serve as potent tools that empower businesses to effortlessly craft customised functions across the application, automating processes from task allocation to report gathering.

Service Level Agreements

Service Level Agreements (SLAs) play a crucial role in ensuring project success. With SLAs, businesses can establish rules that must be followed to meet expectations. For instance, SLAs can set deadlines for fixing issues that arise during the project.

Notifications

With project management software, businesses can ensure that everyone is on the same page with automatic notifications. Notifications can be sent to clients, team members, and administrators to keep them updated on the progress of the project.

Rules

Businesses can harness the capability of crafting custom rules to create processes triggered by specific events. They can specify the conditions under which rules activate and the sequence in which rules are executed, ensuring a comprehensive rule set. For instance, if the severity of an issue escalates, it automatically gets assigned to a team member for prompt resolution.

Webhooks

This feature seamlessly integrates with rules. Upon rule activation, businesses can set up webhooks to dispatch reminders or SMS notifications to team members via third-party platforms such as Slack. This ensures timely action on triggered rules, enhancing efficiency and accountability within the team.
Customisation

Layouts

Project management software provides businesses with comprehensive control over the layout and structure of projects, ensuring they align perfectly with specific business requirements. With this software, businesses have the flexibility to customise the project layout fully.

Custom Fields

With project management software, businesses have the ability to enhance data capture by adding custom fields tailored to their specific needs. These custom fields provide a means to collect accurate and relevant information, such as email addresses or phone numbers.

Custom Views

Task custom views offer a powerful feature that allows businesses to streamline their project management according to their specific needs. Businesses can filter tasks based on tags or IDs, enabling them to quickly prioritise the most important tasks.

Custom Status

Custom statuses offer a valuable tool for technicians to efficiently track the progress of tasks or projects within a project. By utilising custom statuses, technicians can apply specific labels or tags to tasks, providing clear visibility about the state of each task.

Templates

This feature enables businesses to efficiently create templates for graphs, charts and task lists to create a baseline of what they whould look like. These can then be saved and used later for the same processes.

Tags

In projects with a large number of tasks, locating specific tasks can become challenging and time-consuming. However, utilising tags and IDs can significantly enhance task management and simplify the process of finding and filtering tasks as each task can be given a tag.
Time Tracking

Timesheets

Timesheets are a valuable tool that empower businesses to track and manage their time on specific tasks within a project. With the help of timers and precise time tracking features, timesheets enable accurate monitoring and control over project progress.

Budgeting

Monitoring the project budget offers insights into how the project's financial aspects influence the company's resources. It enables the analysis of actual project expenses against projected costs, facilitating informed decision-making regarding resource allocation and project management.

Automatic Timers

Timers are invaluable tools that facilitate accurate tracking of the time spent by team members on individual tasks. With the ability to automatically start and stop when a user initiates or completes a task, timers provide a convenient way to record task progress.

Invoices

By leveraging both timesheets and automatic timers, businesses can generate precise invoices that capture the time invested in tasks and calculate the corresponding costs incurred throughout the project's duration.

Calendars

The calendar feature offered by the platform is particularly valuable among its array of features. It provides a visual representation of the project timeline, enabling businesses to display and track the completion status of tasks as the project progresses.
Reports

Task Reports

This feature grants businesses the ability to generate both basic and advanced task reports, providing valuable insights into various aspects such as task status, completion percentage, or task priority within the project.

Issue Reports

Issue reports serve as valuable tools for businesses to monitor the status of errors and problems within the project. These reports provide an overview of the issues encountered, their current status, and whether they have been resolved or are still pending.

Planned Cost VS Actual Cost

This feature is crucial for evaluating the success of a project. By comparing projected costs against actual costs, businesses can use this feature to gain insights into the financial performance of the project, helping them assess its overall success.

Project Dashboard

Dashboards serve as visual representations of a project's progress, consolidating information in the form of reports, charts and schedules. These dashboards provide a holistic view of the project, enabling tracking of various aspects to make informed decisions.
Collaboration

Feeds

Feeds within project management software facilitate effective communication and collaboration among teams through features such as comments, mentions, and attachments. These dynamic feeds provide a platform for exchanging information or ideas.

Chats

Chats provide a dedicated and personalised communication platform within project management software, allowing selected team members to engage in focused discussions. These chatrooms offer a private space where ideas and updates can be shared.

Documents

This feature provides document management that empowers businesses to create, store, and seamlessly share documents with team members. With automatic version control integrated into the software, every user has the most updated version of the document.

How Do I View All My Project Tasks?

To access all tasks on the dashboard, go to "Overview" > "Tasks" and choose the "My Open" view to display all assigned tasks.

What Languages Does Zoho Projects Support?
The platform offers support for numerous languages, including English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Japanese, and more. To switch the default language of the application, follow these steps: Go to "Setup" > "Personal Preferences" > "Profile" and click the edit icon next to the user's name. Choose the desired language from the language field dropdown menu, then click "update" to save the preferences.
Do Dependencies Carry Over From Task List Templates?
Unfortunately, task dependencies are not transferred from task list templates. However, they are retained in project templates. When creating a new task list, choose "Choose from project templates" and select a task list from the available options.
What Is The Difference Between Project Templates and Task Templates?
Project templates serve as pre-designed frameworks for projects, facilitating time and effort-saving during project creation by providing a ready-made structure to build upon. Conversely, task templates store task lists and their associated tasks, enabling businesses to recycle frequently used tasks across various projects, ensuring consistency and efficiency in task management.
How Do I Convert Tasks Into Sub-Tasks?
Converting a sub-task into a task is straightforward. First, click on the reorder icon, then drag and drop the sub-task outside of its parent task. This action automatically converts the sub-task into a standalone task. To perform the reverse operation, click the reorder icon on a task, then drag and drop it over another task. This action transforms the task into a sub-task of the target task.
How Do I Let Users Know That They Have Been Added To The Portal?

To notify users about their addition to the portal, click the add icon at the top of the page and hover over the grid icon to reveal more options. Then, select "User." For existing members, choose their email addresses from the menu. For new users, input their email addresses, select their role and profile, and enter their hourly rate. Once done, check the "Notify added users" box and click "Add."
