Nishant Patel, CEO, Raw Engineering: “ We tried a lot of different applications before Zoho Projects. Applications like Unfuddle, Assembla and Basecamp were just harder to use and didn't have all the features Zoho offered. Zoho Projects is the right fit. And the integration with Gmail – which lets us create bug entries directly from Gmail – was a big feature that sold the team. That integration helps keep the whole team organized and in sync. So using Zoho Projects, an online tool, to help improve our company and improve our project management overall is a huge validation of Zoho and the online philosophy. ”
Sub task are ones generally used to split up a parent task into a number of tasks which can be assigned and tracked separately in a project. Splitting tasks into smaller tasks i,e work breakdown structure often provides a better picture of the progress on the task, and allows each project member involved in completing the task to better understand what part of the module they are responsible for.
Zoho Projects allows you to break your existing tasks in sub tasks in order to gain much deeper insights into progress of a task. Now, you can outdent / indent an existing task to break into a sub task or summary task respectively as per your needs. While importing sub tasks in Zoho from your MS project all your work break down structure is carried as such from MS project in Zoho. In addition, you can also view sub tasks in gantt and task dependency view. Furthermore, just like normal tasks, you can capture sub tasks as part of project templates.
