Features, Benefits, Product Strengths
- Project and Task Management – With WP-Client Project Management Extension, users of the plugin can create projects and assign clients through a centralized Project Dashboard. It integrates with the current client base so users can assign projects to their client or enable potential clients to register on their own. They can also assign tasks to one responsible person or break it down further into smaller subtasks so that more people can work on and be accountable for it. Users can also group tasks and define it as a milestone. A completed project can then be archived which will still be viewable and available for review.
- File Sharing and Collaboration – Users and team members can upload files and assign them to projects, which will then be available for download by those with the proper user permission, role or project assignment. The extension is ready for collaboration through its Team Talk, a group messaging system within the plugin. Users are notified when messages are posted. Files can also be shared. Discussions with clients as well as file sharing is possible with Client Talk. An Activity Stream also displays a full list of recorded activity, which includes information on created, completed or deleted tasks, uploaded files and assigned teammates.
- Permission Control and User Roles – The Project Management Extension allows for permission control so that project information and details are assigned only to team members and clients involved. No unnecessary data is seen in their dashboard. Built-in user roles with default permissions allow for easy administration. Users can assign the role of Project Managers to delegate tasks and responsibilities, Teammates to allow access to resources and get work done, and Freelancers to allow access to temporary outside help.
