How to Plan a Project with ProjectManager.com
At a basic level, planning tools let you organize all of your tasks and resources, so you can break your project down into phases and set reasonable deadlines for your team.
ProjectManager.com is a project planning software that keeps you on schedule and lets you report on progress along the way. Here’s a walk-through so you can get more out of your projects.
1. Create Task List
Quickly start projects by importing your task list into our software. We can import MSP files, so you can easily edit and share them with your team. Of course, you can start from scratch too.
2. Add Task Description
Add brief descriptions to your tasks to give your team clear directions. Set priorities and create tags to make the task easy to find. This makes it easy to see which tasks can be excluded from the plan.
3. Switch to Gantt Chart View
Our Gantt chart maps all your tasks across a project timeline. Estimate the duration of each task by adding a start and end date. Our online project planner lets you link dependent tasks, add summary tasks and set milestones, too.
4. Onboard Your Team
Onboard your team once you’re ready to share your project plan. Invite them to the software, and they’ll get an email notification. Add details about what project team they’re on and their skill set for easier workload management.
5. Add Availability
Define your team’s availability so you can assign tasks properly and hit deadlines. We have a feature that automates your calendar, indicating working days versus holidays. Even add your team’s labor cost for easy budget management.
6. Assign Work
Start assigning tasks right from the Gantt chart. Just click on a task and select one or more team members to execute it. Add comments, documents and images as needed to your plan. Teams are alerted whenever there’s a change made.
7. Kanban for Task Updates
Use the kanban board view to see project tasks as cards under columns representing production phases. Teams can use the board to manage their work without affecting your plan on the Gantt chart.
8. Monitor Progress

Plan Long and Short Projects Effectively
Online Gantt charts make project planning easy, no matter the size of your project. Make project timelines, link dependent tasks and monitor progress in real time. Add as many columns as you like and customize the Gantt to match your project. You can track tasks and costs too.
Organize Work for Your Team
Prioritize your tasks in a list form, and then filter and sort for quick management. Orchestrate a project or use personal task lists to manage your own work to increase efficiencies. Plus, attach as many documents to your tasks as you need to stay organized.
