Interactive Gantt Chart is a lot easier and quicker way to create project schedule

  • You can drag-n-drop Tasks to move along timeline, , extend duration & add task dependencies using mouse
  • Earlier we have been supporting Finish to Start (F2S) type of dependency but in this release new types of dependencies can be created like Start to Start (S2S), Finish to Finish (F2F), Start to Finish (S2F) along with lag time
  • Color of the task in Gantt is now based on its priority (viz. High – Red, Medium – Amber, Low – Green, None – Blue); Whenever team member update the task progress, it will automatically get displayed inside the bar (in dark colors)

  • Do you work with Microsoft Project, no worries, now we offer inter-operability with MS Project too

  • Un-Delete projects (retrieve projects deleted by project managers)
  • Change project manager for any given project (reassign project ownership to somebody else)

  • We have given a super slick look and feel to ZilicusPM in its version 3.0
  • Few changes in usability aspects – e.g. The way you create tasks in ZilicusPM has been improved considerably
