Features, Benefits, Product Strengths
- Manage Tasks and Assign Priorities – Projects allows you to create tasks and assign people to them. Later, you can monitor the progress of these tasks as well as place comments on them. In addition, you can assign priorities to the task. The new tasks arrive in ‘Inbox’. Later, you can assign priorities by putting them in the required folders, which includes the ‘Today’ folder signifying the most important tasks, the ‘Next’ folder which can contain tasks that are important but not urgent, the ‘Scheduled’ folder for tasks that need to be completed on specific dates, and finally the ‘Someday’ folder for unimportant tasks.
- Collaboration and Dashboard – Every task can be grouped under a certain ‘Area’, which is a collection of tasks indicating a certain business process of the organization. The dashboard is the main screen that shows the summary and all the information regarding the tasks. Additionally, it shows notifications regarding any comments or updates to the tasks. The collaboration feature allows anyone within your work domain to get access to Projects via their Google Apps account. People outside the domain can also be invited through their Google accounts.
- Attachments and Reports – To provide the complete picture, you can attach images, links and documents, uploaded on your Google Drive, to your tasks. You can also upload files from your computer and link them to the tasks. The attachments have the same level of permissions as your tasks so they can be accessed by everyone assigned with the task. Furthermore, you can generate reports on specific dates that indicate the times spent on tasks, as well as add or remove the times spent. The reports are generated as Google Spreadsheets, so you can group the data by people, projects, or tags to view the high level summary.
