ActiveCollab is proud to present (drumroll, please) Workload! A new feature that will help you get the most out your time and that of your team. It can be difficult to know what each person is doing each day and how much time they are using. This problem can be solved by daily meetings, whiteboards, or spreadsheets. These methods can create new problems. How do you reorganize tasks when someone suddenly becomes sick? Add another task to someone who may already have a lot of work. Whiteboards can be difficult to use, meetings can take a lot of work, and spreadsheets seem to be multiplying. A bird’s eye view of all your projects
ActiveCollab’s teams have been hard at work creating Workload, the ultimate tool for resource management. It all began with the desire of our customers to have a clear overview about their projects. We can relate to the need for a visual view of what’s going on. We use sticky notes for planning and move them around until we are satisfied with the results. Sticky notes won’t work in project management. Workload is the solution. Managers have been dreaming of having a bird’s-eye view that shows everything your teams do on a daily basis, weekly, and monthly basis. This is finally happening. Focus on the future
The Workload timeline begins with the first day of the current work week. You might wonder why you can’t see past activities. It’s because Workload was designed to be a planning tool, not a reporting tool. We can now focus on the future by letting what’s in the present stay in the past. Every hour counts!
You can see all the tasks and people involved in all projects on the timeline. This will allow you to see how much time each team member has available, and if they have to work overtime. This feature is designed to optimize the workload allocation. This feature allows you to adjust the workload allocation, drag-and-drop tasks within a team member’s timeline and reassign them to someone with less work. This will prevent you from getting into the dangerous situation where one person is exhausted and the rest are staring at the walls. Where are all the others? !
It’s easy to share assignments equally when you have a clear view of everyone’s daily capabilities. Some people may work part-time while others stay longer. It is possible to arrange each person’s availability. It’s easy to forget Ashley working 6-8 hours a day, or why Trevor leaves at 1 pm every day. It’s all right there, right beside their names. Weekends and holidays will be taken into consideration when scheduling tasks. You will also be notified if a team member takes days off. You don’t have to remind yourself every day that someone isn’t there. ActiveCollab Workload allows you to create a schedule that suits each team member’s strengths, availability, and makes every hour count. Happy work!
