Kanban Board with Custom State Flow

Using ZilicusPM, project managers can decide project specific flow of activities – how project activities should move from one state to another (e.g. Backlog > Requirement Analysis > Design > Development > Testing > Complete). Project manager can create custom card states in Kanban boards in ZilicusPM. A screenshot below illustrate how custom card state would look like for a given project. Project manager can as well decide the order of states by dragging and dropping states to rearrange order of card states. The short video linked below demonstrate how to use Kanban board in ZilicusPM.

Kanban board is most effective tool for project team members. ZilicusPM provides a separate home page for team members to view Kanban board for different projects. An individual can visualize project activities assigned to him/her are in different states. ZiliusPM makes it simpler for team member to move card (project activity) from one state to another by using drag & drop of a mouse.

Approval Process for “New Project Requests”

Many enterprise businesses need to follow well-defined process in order to take up a new project proposal. The project approval process ensures project request is thoroughly reviewed by portfolio manager or senior management.

Zilicus has introduced an important feature for all those organizations where new project request should follow formal approval process. Using the latest version of ZilicusPM, customers can enable new project request approval process. Once enabled, every new project request is submitted for review by portfolio manager. Portfolio managers can take a look at project proposal, project schedule, cost, etc perspective and decide whether to approve, reject or ask for more information.

ZilicusPM maintains audit log for approval process, review notes added by project reviewer. Once a project request is approved by reviewer, project owner can change project status from Pending/Draft state to In-Progress. In short, ZilicusPM is making enterprise project management process even better.
