From a single interface, users can switch between tabs to group and organize tasks by date, project, context, or team member. They can have an overview of tasks, schedules and events with a single glance using the team calendar. No need to switch screens.
Task Management, Project Collaboration – Users can simply click on a particular task, then drag it on to the name of the person at the team area of the screen for task assignment.
