We’d like to take this opportunity to give our best Happy New Year wishes from everyone at Zoho, and may all our users have a great 2012.
The first thing to look at is what positive changes we could bring this New Year for our customers to get things done faster with Zoho Projects. On a similar note, we worked on THIS most crucial and missing functionality in Zoho Projects. And of course it happens to be the most discussed and popular topic of our customer forums too.
Yes, you guessed it right. Presto ! Subtasks got integrated into Zoho Projects as part of the existing task management module.
Let us see more about sub tasks in Zoho Projects :
Create subtasks to stay focussed on what matters
Starting today, you’ll be able to create subtasks in a single click. For this, mouseover a particular task you can see a double-headed arrow, click Indent Button to indent the task, making it a subtask or click Outdent Button to outdent the task, making it a summary task in quick time.…
Have you ever asked yourself how you will ever accomplish that load of work in a faster and an effective manner? Are you having difficulty in meeting deadlines set by your boss? If you try to complete it all in one day, you will most probably end up disorganized and overwhelmed.
There is an essential tool that will help you to work more efficiently – a project template
This tool keeps your tasks more organized to effectively accomplish your project goals on time and of course helps combat those feelings of overwhelm and not being in control.The core purpose of a project template is to capture, to the greatest extent possible, all the actions that needs to be accomplished right from the inception of a project till its completion.
Gives you a big picture of what has to be done next in a project
Eases the burden on the project team as they help save time, effort and money
Helps the project team in streamlining the project in a far more effective manner
Structures communication and engagements ensuring the final product is of high quality
With this latest update, we’ve included the most requested task dependency view
as part of the template for better managing the tasks.
Bug tracking is something software development teams deal with on a daily basis. For most developers, it is a frustrating experience to submit, organize and then fix bugs day in day out. And over a period of time this can become a tedious, repetitive and time consuming process for developers which might lead to delay in addressing their customer needs.
On a similar note, we got a request from one of our user:
Can we add or create a web form for our customers within our website (this is how we currently manage our projects and communicate with customers). I would set up an additional tab within my customer site — called “Submit a Ticket”. can we do this ?
Well, now Zoho BugTracker solves this challenge by eliminating the need to file bugs without actually logging into BugTracker with the
Web to Bug form.
new Web to Bug form offers the best way to submit a bunch of bugs much
faster than usual.
The biggest challenge for every software developer is to get rid of the bugs. It’s not about coding, it’s about removing those weeds (the bugs) before they ruin the lawn (your software). This constant editing process is what makes a software great. For this, you need a bug tracker integrated with an efficient source control system to host your codes in one place and is accessible from anywhere.
Today we’re launching this extra piece of functionality: the
Here’s what you get:
With this new integration, you can link your GitHub repository in Zoho BugTracker using service hooks. Henceforth, codes checked-in in GitHub automatically gets displayed as
in BugTracker. Also, while commiting changes in GitHub for a specified bug ID will be linked to that particular bug in BugTracker.
Github is definitely one of the fast, efficient and distributed online web hosting sites you can find all over the internet.…
Employees are considered the most valuable assets of an organization. The ability to deploy employees effectively against projects enables organizations to utilize and maximize employee productivity. For this, project managers need an efficient system to place the appropriate employees in the right teams at the right time.
Project managers often face questions like how the work to be performed by a team is to be captured, who estimates the amount of effort required, where this information is to be stored and reviewed for accuracy etc. There are no magic shortcuts. You need the right tool that can capture and show the resources utilized within or across all projects of your organization.
The latest update of Zoho Projects offers this crucial feature called Resource Utilization chart, that accurately captures all of the above in a single place.…
We’ve just added Recurring Tasks and Reminders to Zoho Projects!
What are Recurring Tasks ?
Recurring tasks are a type of task that allow you to create a task once, and then have
it recreated automatically after a designated period of time. So they act as a convenient way of repeating a task on track without burdening your task list with a long list of upcoming tasks.
If you look at a list of repeating tasks people have, you will soon realize
that there is no single standard recurrence pattern followed.
For example, a recurring weekly task would be something like submitting your
timesheets every Monday or making backups of your data every month. In Zoho
Projects, entering a new task requires few easy steps and the same does not
equally apply to repeating tasks. Typically, repeating tasks are entered much
less frequently i.e. some are even entered once and remain there for months
(“make backups” is one such example).…
