Actionspace Features In Depth

Intelligent Progress Tracking

One of Actionspace’s most important features is its powerful progress tracking tool, designed for managers and executives. In addition to offering a centralized location for users to track progress online, Actionspace also sends intelligent notifications before deadlines are missed. For users who need to be informed of a project or task’s progress, but aren’t directly involved, Actionspace offers the ability to set up a “project observer role".

Included in the Intelligent Progress Tracking feature is Global Monitoring. Global Monitoring allows users to assign any person (usually, a CEO or CxO) to track all projects in the organization. This is a unique functionality among other similar tools on the market, and it supports Actionspace’s concept of providing business managers with effective daily management and control tools.

To see the progress you’ve made on important tasks and projects, check your dashboard page. The dashboard is where you’ll find progress overviews and tracking information. If you forgot to check-in on the status of a project or task, Actionspace will send you notifications via email, allowing for the instant monitoring of project progress.

Business Project Management

Simple project management tools are a hallmark of the Actionspace platform. The app offers the ability to define user roles, including task creators, project observers, and a supervisor role for executives and managers who need to oversee the tasks their employees are completing.

Actionspace allows you to get a better handle on the status of your own projects. Filters allow you to manage the flow of information and see only the tasks waiting for approval or those due in the next 24 hours. You can also use the chat and instant commenting features within tasks to communicate with employees without picking up the phone or relying on email.

Corporate Task Management

Large businesses have unique needs when it comes to project and task management, which is why Actionspace has designed its advanced task management system with corporate users in mind. Actionspace provides full support for the corporate task lifestyle, enabling users to assign, delegate, and approve tasks before marking them as complete.

As a corporate user, you’re probably comfortable using Outlook for email. With this in mind, Actionspace offers the ability to directly create new tasks from Outlook emails. You can also automate recurring tasks and templates for standard tasks and projects, and transform tasks or assignments into projects—a process known as “splitting”—with just one-click.

Track Time

Actionspace allows its users to plan and track the actual time they spend on individual tasks or complete projects. Using the time tracking feature, organizations are able to more accurately bill clients and plan resources. Time tracking keeps task assignees accountable for their work.

As a task creator, you have the option to enter the estimated time it should take to complete any task you assign. When this happens, the person you assigned the task to (the responsible party) will be prompted to report the actual number of hours he or she spent on the assigned task or project.

Office 365 Integration

Native integrations with Office 365, SharePoint, and Outlook are what make Actionspace unique. The solution provides its business users with convenient access to information, while still keeping data secure.

Seamlessly access the content you have stored in SharePoint using Actionspace’s one-click sign-on process. You can also integrate it with a corporate Outlook client. Data is kept secured inside previously-approved IT infrastructure, without the need for any new logins or passwords.

2018-04-24

Choose this as your ultimate business managing companion. The constantly updated features are just bringing unbelievable levels of creativity and productivity to the table.

Pros

I love the flow of everything and how easy it is to track what the team is doing and to see a projected timeline and estimated project completion dates

Cons

What i dislike is pricing is of use is too much if you own small company, however you do have 14 day trial period so you can decide if that software suits you.

Extra tool to keep track of Project Management

2018-01-17

Pros

What I loved about this product is how it's an add-on to Office 365 and you're still able to do all you did with the Office 365 but with the add-on, you have many more tools at your reach.

Cons

What I didn't like was how many times it froze my computer and I just never used the program again since I can't stand having a frozen computer due to a single program.
