Every day we spend most of the time on urgent but low priority tasks while the most important tasks get put off until another day. Unfortunately, "another day" never seems to arrive. The Pareto principle of 80/20 rule applies here i,e 80% of most important work gets completed if you try to figure out the 20% of high priority tasks. Basically an effective task management software must guide you the best way to find these top 20% of critical tasks for an effective project management process in a team.
The task management module helps you to effectively track key milestones, set dependencies and tasks to be accomplished for a productive work. With Zoho Projects as your task management software, you will have more time to do real work and will have to spend less time managing it.
Project tasks and tasklists make it easy to keep your work items organized and manageable, all in one centralized and easy-to-access location. You can monitor the status of tasks, assign tasks to members, send email reminders and track progress of your project.
Milestones can be used to group tasks together and quickly evaluate how close the project deliverable is to completion. Zoho Projects categorizes milestones as upcoming, overdue and archived / completed so it is easier for you to have a quick look at what's going on in your project.
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 of the project.
Task dependency view helps the project team to get bird's eye view of dependent tasks with details like, Who are responsible for the tasks, What tasks are dependent on each other and When these tasks need to completed.
You can instantly view task reports and gantt charts under Tasks and Milestones itself. Task reports provides a consolidated view of all your open and closed tasks, tasklist and milestones of a project.
