Manage several projects at the same time with 3 customizable multi-projects views:
Input time logs on a task and display detailed reports: per tasks in the When view, or per member in the Who view:
3 tabs to manage your tasks and projects in a visual and overall way.
Schedule work according to the constraints and availability of your team members.
The Gantt chart allows you to visualize the scheduling of tasks on a planning, to follow their completion and the overall progress of the project.
The Gantt chart also materializes the links between tasks if some of them are conditioned by the realization of other tasks. It also allows you to easily visualize the main deadlines in the form of milestones.
The coordination of the project and the associated tasks is based on the construction and the update of this project schedule according to the operational realization of the work.
The project schedule will be all the more relevant as it integrate the workload constraints of the various resources involved in the project.
Workload is the amount of time it takes to complete a task. It is different from the duration of a task.
Indeed, a project member can have a workload of 2 days to achieve a task whose duration is 5 days.
For example, a painter will work a day to apply the 1st layer of paint, wait 3 days before coming back to work a day to apply the 2nd layer. The duration of the task “Painting the facade” is indeed 5 days but the workload of this task is 2 days.
The distinction between the workload and the duration of the task then allows the member to position himself on other tasks up to 3 days (workload), to parallelize the member’s tasks and to optimize his working time.
Conversely, it is not possible for a project member to work 7 days on a task that last 5 days. Therefore, if the workload of a member is 7 days on a task that lasts 5 days, the duration of the task in the schedule must be modified so that it lasts at least as long as the member’s workload, thus ensuring the consistency of the schedule. In this example, it is also possible to distribute the workload among several resources.
The workload is an essential component of time management to ensure the consistency of the schedule, optimize the parallelization and sequencing of tasks according to the availability of project resources.
Time management integrates the notion of workload in different forms in order to achieve a precise and coherent planning:
Very few project management solutions offer elaborate time management features by distinguishing these notions. Most project management applications only propose to enter time, but this is insufficient if you want to have a vision of the remaining workload in order to plan it and identify the impacts on the project schedule.
