Summary

  • Seamless keyboard friendly inline editing gives you the possibility to change or add tasks quickly. You can organize similar tasks into task lists & easily reorder tasks with drag and drop. For more information you can always switch to an advanced tasks view, with filtering capabilities or check the full task view to see everything related to the task in context (description, files & real-time comments).

  • Visually manage your work, people and time bookings in a beautiful timeline. You can schedule bookings and assign tasks directly on the timeline, check what employees will be working on and how their time is allocated. See at a glance who’s booked and who’s available for work, check overbooked or underbooked resources and make changes to your plans in real time.

  • The Gantt Chart is a planning and scheduling tool showing tasks on a timeline and how they relate to each other. As a project manager, you'll see what has to be done, by whom, and when. You can also see work progress, overdue tasks and adjust the schedule accordingly using drag&drop. The app will automatically calculate the critical path, and the earliest date of project completion. The Portfolio Gantt offers the "big picture meta Gantt” about all the projects in your portfolio.

  • You can record time spent on projects or tasks in your browser. Simply start typing and the projects and tasks will autocomplete. When you are ready to work just start the stopwatch. All time entries are saved with start and end times for accurate time reports. The web timer can be docked or you can run it detached and minimized.

  • PaymoPlus is a desktop app that monitors what you're doing on your computer. It's ideal for heavy multitaskers or people who forget to clock in. You don't have to remember to start and stop a timer each time you switch tasks.

  • Get a quick high-level view of the entire portfolio with the “Table View” in your "Projects" list. You'll get information about projects progress (hours worked from total, number of completed tasks), financial information (unbilled accounts receivable), and project status.

  • The app dashboard gives you a snapshot for your company, where you have essential information about the time you've spent on your work, clients, projects, and financial data. This real-time information will help you adjust your plans accordingly.
