Project Activity Stream
Project manager can not only track project progress but s/he along with team members can as well check who is updating what and what all project activities are going at the moment. It is social media like update one can view in the project overview page. The screenshot below shows such updates.
Project Task Comments
Project stakeholders can add their comments to project tasks. If a project manager need certain update about a task, or some other team member need information about a task, s/he can very well drop a comment in the task comment section. Task assignees will be notified about newly added comments in two ways
- Home screen shows new comments added to tasks where I am an assignee
- Depending on email preferences, email notification will be sent to task assignees.
Thus project team members can easily collaborate about their project activities, share latest update, report concerns, seek help or so.
Update: ZilicusPM also has simple excel like interface to manage project tasks. You can use keyboard shortcuts to manage those tasks faster. This enhancement was introduced as a part of project management software version ZilicusPM 11.1 version.
