Draw tasks into gantt chart

Open the task view and add more tasks by „holding the ALT-Key and click and hold your left-mouse-button“ and then move it to left or right to add a new task.more

Sorting tasks

You have basically two options to sort your tasks: Sort by date or custom sort order.  Sort by date will spread out your tasks and sort them by date (duh). Of course you can select if you want it in ascending or descending order. Custom sort order will let you switch the order anyway you want. Maybe you prefer to have your task in three weeks to be at the top. Who am I to tell you how to sort… more

Tasks

Uh, tasks. That’s an important one. Tasks help you to divide your project into smaller steps and assign different steps to different team members. Tasks are overall important to keep track of smaller advancements during the project. To add one of those now infamous “tasks” you heard so much about in the last 30 seconds simply click on “Add” next to “Tasks/Milestones”, watch the sexy slide animation and enter a task name. By clicking “Add Task“ or pressing enter you… more

Milestones / Deadline

Next up are Milestones and the Deadline. The Deadline is easy enough: The date when your project is due. It can be set to a date after the ending date of your project but not before. Milestones are used to mark important dates or steps during your project. Just like a task, to add click “Add” next to “Task/Milestone” but now select the “Milestone” tab. Enter a name and a description and choose a date by clicking the date placeholder… more

Multiselect

We have all been there: Something was not going according to plan and you have to delay a whole group of tasks. This is annoying enough as it is so I made it as easy as possible for you. Simply draw a window around the tasks you want to select like you would on your desktop and drag & drop it anywhere you want – done. more

Keyboard controls

If you click into one of the date fields you can maneuver left and right with your [←] and [→] arrow keys and you can change the days/months/years with the [↑] and [↓] arrow keys. more

Mouse controls

Of course you can also use the datepicker menu with your mouse. You can choose between 4 different selection modes by clicking the 4 buttons at the top of the datepicker window. To select a date just click the corresponding number, to select a whole month, simply click on the month name at the top. Change begin The first one is “Change begin” – this way you can set the begin date of your timeframe. You may see that some… more

Teams & Permissions

In this menu you have a detailed overview over all your teams, all members in those teams and the permissions of each and every member. If you click on Team/Rights on one of your teams you will see all those happy fellows you work with and their position as long as you have the right to see that. If you are the projectmanager yourself you can change the roles of the other members from this menu, invite new users via… more

Task Selection

Project selection Let’s start with selecting the projects you want to look at. In the lower right corner of your Dashboard page, you can see the the box “Filter“. If you click on the “Projects“ button within the box you´ll see all your projects. Just check those you want to consider for the view. User selection Right below the “projects“ button is the user button. Here you can decide whose tasks you want to see. Just check the members of… more

Timeframe

After narrowing down which tasks you want to have displayed you have to decide which timeframe you want to look at. The default presets are “Today”, “This Week” or “This Month” but you can choose your own frame anytime by clicking on “Range”. This will open a and you will be able to easily select a start and ending date for your timeframe. You can also select a whole month by simply clicking it. more

Checkboxes

Checking these boxes will automatically mark the tasks as finished and they will fade out. more

PDF

Last but not least the Dashboard view has a possibility to export the “taskplan” you selected as a PDF so you can share, print, mail or paper your walls with it if you want to. more

Task wrapper

Each project can be viewed with all tasks in this view if you want to by clicking the “Task-Icon” (the checkbox-like symbol on the left next to the project name). more

Team wrapper

Just like the task wrapper you can change the view to show all team members and their corresponding tasks in the overview by clicking the “Team-Icon” (the person without a face on the left below the “Task-Icon” more

Hoverover buttons headline

When hovering over the timeline in the gantt chart you will see two buttons appear. The first one – “Today” – jumps straight to the current date to center your view on the daily tasks. The second one – “Jump to day” – lets you choose a date from the and jumps there instead. We hope your mouse wheel will be thankful. more

Extension arrows

Also up there with the timeline are two arrows, one left, one right. These arrows will extend your timeline to dates earlier or later than those shown so far if it is needed to plan better. more

Drag & Drop

You can also use drag and drop to either slide it left and right along the timeline or stretch the time by dragging one of the sides. Just like you would resize a window on your desktop. You can also drag a project up and down to sort your projects (by importance, length, the amount of members or maybe color. No wait! Not color! When history showed us one thing than that you should never sort something by color). All… more

Scaling

You can further adjust the chart to your viewing pleasure with the little bar in the lower left. This lets you select the scale of the whole chart. You can zoom in and out on the projects if you want to have a bigger overview over multiple projects or maybe a closer look on some time critical moments. more

Menu bar

Just under the gantt chart you can see a slim bar with some options. Let’s look through them quick. Feedback First off we have the feedback button. Pretty self explanatory. If you happen to see any bugs (which you hopefully won’t because we have neither avoided cost nor effort to hide them in places NO ON would look for them *insert evil laughter here*) you can tell us about you knightly tales via this nifty little form. The same applies… more

Copy project/task

Are you really really satisfied with you project setup? Is one just not enough for you? Do you have similar projects like this one to do? Simply duplicate it! Only one right click on the project on the left and one left click on the duplicate button and there you have it. Your own project clone. The same applies to tasks you want to copy except that you also have the possibility to copy tasks just by holding [Alt] and… more

Project finished?

The next bit might be self explanatory but we don’t cut corners here. Under the task window you can see a checkbox that says “project finished”. So if you are done with your project just click it and a window will appear and ask you if you are sure. If you are – go for it and click ok. This will fade out your project from the gantt chart to make room for more and your chart cleans up a… more

Edit project rights / teams & permissions

If you want to change the rights to a project simply select the project and click the project rights button on the bottom of the right side or click the  button in the top right This will take you to the options page of your teams. Here you can change the rights of the members (if you have the authority to do so of course). Your options are: projectmanager (can change other project rights, change all tasks, add new ones, shuffle them… more

Restore deleted projects

You deleted it by accident, didn’t you? Well, I guess it’s human to make mistakes – that’s why I got your back. Just click the bin button next to the finished projects in the bottom left corner that says deleted projects. This will open a window where you have to click the button on the left side to restore the project. This will automatically unmark the project as finished. The other bin button there will do what most bin buttons… more

Edit project right and the bin

The last two options for the editing of a project are editing the project rights and deleting it completely. If you click the project rights button you will be taken to the options page of you team and be able to change the rules of the members if you have the authority to do so. The bin-symbol does what those symbols mostly do – delete stuff. Stuff in this case meaning the whole project. For good. No turning back. That’s… more

Project name

In here you can enter a fitting project name (otherwise it’ll be just “new project”). more

Project color

Up in the top left corner you see a colored circle. Click this to reveal a drop down menu of colors you can choose for your project. The color will appear in the gantt chart and make it easier to distinguish your projects. more

Datepicker

Next you have to use the datepicker to choose the starting and the ending date to set the period in which the project will be done. (For more information on how to unlock the full potential of the datepicker, have a look here.) The default time frame is 5 days. more

Project description editor

Next you should give a description of the project so you (and potential team members – but we will get to that later) always know what the project is about exactly. Like the , the editor also has a lot of features so if you want to learn more about all of them – here you go. more

Team assignment

The last step before actually creating the project is to assign a team. The default is “team private”. If you click it, a drop-down menu will appear with all the previously assigned teams. Create new team If you don’t have any yet or just want to create a new team click the “create new team” section in the menu. Now think of a fitting name for that team. In the next step you can add team members to your team… more
