Projectplace Features In Depth

Task Management

With Projectplace, users can plan and execute tasks collaboratively using the digital kanban boards. Tasks are assigned on cards, and depending on their actual progress, can be moved from one status column to another. A clear overview of who is working on what can be seen easily with Projectplace.

Projectplace comes with an action planning tool that enables you to plan your team’s daily activities, set priorities, and assign issues to team members. It also has built-in project templates so you don’t always have to start from scratch when planning your projects.

Document Management

Projectplace’s document management system enables users to upload images, documents, and other files that can be shared with colleagues and other users. The app's document version control functionality ensures users are always working on the most recent file version, and that, if needed, they can go back to a previously saved version. Projectplace also comes with a document locking feature that prohibits other users from making changes to a document you're currently working on.

There is a changes tracking and usage audit function to monitor how files and documents are being used and when, and to foster accountability among users. Documents can be referred to in your Projectplace conversations or in cards in your kanban board. Documents from third-party apps such as Google Docs can also be accessed and shared via Projectplace.

Real-Time Collaboration

Successful team-based projects have one thing in common: effective communication, which, however, doesn’t just happen from out of the blue. Aside from commitment, a schedule, and a set of guidelines that everyone adheres to, collaborators are equipped with the right set of tools to foster a potent communication system.

Projectplace's smart and user-friendly collaboration tools allow teams to communicate in the most efficient way possible. Internal and external stakeholders are able to brainstorm and communicate through online meetings, email, instant messaging, or through links to personalized project sites. Chat groups can be created, and screens can be shared with up to 100 online meeting participants.

Workload Management

Resource conflict and tasks overload are two of the reasons why project delivery timelines aren’t achieved, resulting in delays, actual costs greater than the allocated budget, and a chaotic team relationship, among other things. With Projectplace, you get a workload management tool that shows you an overview of all scheduled projects and the resources assigned to each.

It allows you to immediately spot which resources are overbooked so that some of their workload can be assigned to others who are available.

Reports and Analytics

Reports are a vital component of project management. They show the performance of your projects against targets or benchmarks. Projectplace has a report management functionality that enables you to present project data as updates useful to investors, stakeholders, project managers, and other partners.

Projectplace’s Enterprise edition covers basic reporting that includes summary reports of all projects in a portfolio. Relevant data can be filtered and viewed in real time, extracted into a report, and subsequently sent to clients and other stakeholders. With Projectplace, you can seamlessly generate reports for tasks, time spent on projects per member, costs, project statuses, milestones, work plans, document access rights, kanban boards, and so on.

You Can Have It All

2016-01-22

Is there any way to have it all: agile planning plus financially compliant planning?

Pros

And yes you can really have Gantt and relate activity to hard external milestones.

Cons

A sample training set of projects might be nice, but really so far, ProjectPlace is a standout.

Fluid software which allows me to easily work on projects with my co workers and share documents.

2017-10-19

Easy collaboration, project document storage, project deadline help.

Pros

What I like most about the software is the ease of uses to collaborate with my co workers on projects with tracking what needs to be done and when.

Cons

What I like least about the software is when I first started using It I struggled with getting used to the interface, maybe push tutorials more on the beginner user?

A very good project management tool

2015-12-06

It was a very good tool for the initial planning but even during the whole project.

Pros

Very easy to use and easy to invite project members.

Cons

It was a little tricky understanding how to change dates for sub-activities in the projectplan without changing date on the main activity.

Finally! Visibility into programs with shared resources

2015-06-08

The tool also enabled real-time collaboration with comments, @ mentions, document management, timelines etc.

Pros

- Helps reduce meetings because you are able to collaborate within the tool - Visibility across teams and individuals.

Cons

Need the ability to select what day your week starts -Would love to see some type of integration with Salesforce or Marketing Automation platforms - Improved dashboards and reports would be ideal

Great, easy to use.

2017-10-12

It is a great opportunity for my manager and I to interact with each other and collaborate on projects and ideas.

Pros

I also like the fact that everything is in one place, don't have to move to different applications to collaborate with your team.

Cons

Under the time tracking, it would be nice to have a set template that would load each week and not have to click a button to load the previous weeks template.

Easy to use, web based project/task tracking.

2017-10-27

All parts of the business have visibility into the state/status of projects. Not jsut the project managers.

Pros

Ease of use for non-Project Managers and non-technical people to use. Mobile app closely mirrors web (for Board use).

Cons

For instance, Workspaces feeding up to a global roadmap.

Blog Management with ProjectPlace

2016-04-26

It also gives an overview of what has been done already, thus giving you a quick sense of where you are in the stream of the project, all at a glance. Notifications If you are assigned a new task or someone else has finished the task before yours, you get a nice little notification up in the right hand corner of the screen.

Pros

Ease of Use Visual Presentation Responsive Support Fast Search Feature

Cons

It isn't completely clear if there is integration with other apps, however, it is effectively a stand alone app for the purposes of my organization.

Website easy to navigate

2017-10-19

From disorganized hard/soft notes to a centralized software where I can keep track of my projects and share them with whoever is part of it.

Pros

The ability to document each part of my project, the easiness to navigate.

Cons

The "download" option for documents is sort of hidden. It would be nice to have the download option next to the file, or somewhere more visible.

We currently use Innotas and don't use all the features so we have been experimenting with the tool.

2017-10-12

Pros

It is easy to use. The interface and the phone application are big pluses.

Cons

You can not add resources to an activity. You need to assign cards to the activity and assign resources to the cards.

Seems like an excellent option

2017-01-20

Projectplace is hooked into the right cloud services (slack, zapier, etc) to make it one of the top contenders for online project management and integration. I've used it just a bit and seems like an excellent way to go.

Pros

Integration with other cloud services

Cons

As with cloud services, can't use it offline

Projectplace is great in theory, however, it is not the easiest to navigate.

2017-10-12

It's not necessarily a benefit to me, but rather to my company. It allows them to micromanage their employees with ease on their end.

Pros

I like that I don't have to click a "Submit" button to submit my timesheet. That at least saves me from having one extra thing to click on or add in when submitting my timesheet.

Cons

Having to add in each service line and each detail that I cover for every service line each week is a bit ridiculous.
