Hard & Soft Resource
Allocation
Create a rough sketch of future resource allocation by planning hours. When the time comes to lock in those resources, schedule their hours on a project to commit their time and remove them from the availability pool.
Resource Scheduling
(Task & Project Level)
Schedule a resource's hours on a project or task. That resource can now see how much time is allotted, and others can see that the resource is allocated (booked) for those hours/days.
Real-Time Availability
Forecasting
See which resources are available now and who will be available in the future based on the resource schedule. View by role to see which roles are available to staff a project need.
Resource Shaping
Automatically schedule a resource across multiple days using different methods. Spread their hours evenly through the project, frontload them, backload them, or consume a set amount over a specified date range.

Project Management

Task Management
Create and manage project activities, milestones, deliverables, and issues in a drag-and-drop task list. Build a multi-level work breakdown structure (WBS) with nested tasks.
Task Assignment & Scheduling
Set task start dates, due dates, and priority levels. Assign tasks to project participants to clarify responsibilities. Team members can update task status as their work progresses.
Schedule Management
Manage each project's schedule in a list or timeline-based view. Schedule task dates manually or based on task duration and relationships.
Gantt Charts
Visualize each project's tasks and timeline on an interactive gantt chart. Drag-and-drop tasks to adjust dates and durations.
Task Dependencies
Establish task relationships in a project's gantt chart to signify dependencies between activities. When a task schedule is changed in gantt, all dependent tasks shift accordingly.
Critical Path Analysis
Highlight the tasks in a project's critical path on the gantt chart to identify which activities directly impact delivery dates.
Portfolio Management
Create project groups to quickly assemble programs and portfolios of projects.
Project Baseline & Variance Analysis
Record snapshots of your gantt chart and budget to create a baseline. Compare the current schedule against any previous snapshot to analyze variance.
Project Plan Templates
Build reusable project templates that include tasks, gantt charts, budgets, and assignments. Customize and apply templates to create new projects in seconds. Save an existing project plan as a template to replicate success.
Change Request Management
Submit a change request to your client for approval, streamlining the approval process when scope changes result in a revised budget to deliver the work.
