Welcome to this exciting new area of TimeControl. TimeControl Project is a unique new approach to bringing enterprise project management processes into one place.
TimeControl Project is a new concept in project management that extends functionality to project planners and project managers from different perspectives. TimeControl Project is a premium version of TimeControl Online or TimeControl Industrial Online. It is not available for TimeControl or TimeControl Industrial on premise.
There is a long standing desire of enterprises to involve the entire enterprise in the project planning, tracking and management process but attempts to create software for such implementations have started with the premise that all project data in the organization is homogenous. It is easy to make a sales demonstration showing how an individual task at the most detailed level of the enterprise can be seen to affect reports and plans at the most senior level. It is a long path from a sales demonstration to an integrated project management enterprise and that path involves not only software but also process. It is a rare organizations that manages its projects in an integrated top-to-bottom, bottom-to-top structure.
TimeControl Project distinguishes the data and display of project management information into different perspectives in a way that is unique in the project management software industry. Views of data can be created for the Strategic Level executives, for Operational Level project managers and resource managers and at the Tactical Level for team leaders and individuals. You decide when that data is better suited to be integrated from a single source or when it is more effective to be managed distinctly.
When activated within TimeControl Online or TimeControl Industrial Online, TimeControl Project starts as a simple list of Views. These views are managed at the user or User Profile level so you only see the Views appropriate to you.
TimeControl Views are each highly configurable within their three types:
Sheets – Spreadsheet Views
TimeControl Project Sheets - Spreadsheet Views shows information the way a Strategic Level executive like a Chief Financial Officer or the Chief Executive Officer might look at past performance of projects or at future plans. But Sheets is so much more because it is intimately tied to TimeControl data. You can pull actuals from the timesheet data, make your own formulas like you might do in a spreadsheet product like Excel then tie that data together and even make charts just like you would in an external system. This is real analytical power right inside TimeControl.
GANTT – Schedule Views
Boards – Agile Views
TimeControl Project's Agile Boards are highly customizable. You can define each board by an unlimited number of criteria and use Swimlanes, Colors and other options to group, sort and highlight data. TimeControl Project Board Cards can be based on existing Charge Code Records or in distinct Task Lists which will not affect existing Charge records. Drag and Drop the cards to the area of the screen where they belong.
