How To Manage Outsourced Work – Active Collab Project Management System Review


Hi, my name is Tyrone Shum from Internet Business
Path and welcome to a guided tool of the ActiveCollab. What I like to do is just give you a quick
rundown of what this particular project management software is and also give you a little sneak
preview of what’s inside. I mean you can actually hop onto the ActiveCollab and see a demo on
their website but I thought I’d show you interaction on how it works on my blog. This is the project management software that
I currently use for my own business to manage all the projects that I currently have and,
it’s a fantastic little software. The reason why I chose this is because it allows you
to customize and also create things within that. Also, you can even put unlimited amount
of projects and unlimited amount of users and that’s what I like about this one. So
you’re not limited by using someone else’s server to have this software running and also
you’re not limited by how many you can actually have. So let’s log in straight to it and I’ll
log into this particular. Okay so I’m logged in right now. As you can
see this is the Dashboard of the Control Panel. What you’ll notice is that it gives you Recent
activities, Activities and also what is due for today and that’s just usually what happens
when you log into it. You can customize this to different colors, skins, to whatever you
like it but I’ve just kept it simple because that’s what my guys and myself actually do
so we want to be able to just communicate. Firstly, I’ll explain all these different
things here. You’ve got the People, which the people you can actually to put into this
software, it can be your clients, it can be your programmers, your VAs, anyone that’s
going to be using this software; list of your Projects; Calendar, this is just like the
calendar to allow you to see which dates and also projects are due on that date; and Assignment,
now this particular thing is when you click on it, it shows you what tasks have been assigned
to you. So if you logged in as one of your programmers, you click on that and you’ll
see dates and assignments you need to do. The most important thing I want to show you
is Projects just to give you a brief rundown why it’s so good and so powerful to use this
particular software. I also find that by using this particular software, it gives you a lot
of flexibility because it allows you to keep everything all at one hand. I used to use
emails back and forth with programmers and VAs and just got really messy. So after coming
across to this, you can actually manage everything within each project. This is usually your Projects list and tells
you all the projects that you’re currently running and I just wanted to share you one
of it so that you can get a clear understanding of what this project management software allows
you to do. As you can probably see, you’ve got just a brief overview of what is happening
in the software. It even tells you the little task completion bar which is fantastic because
it tells you whether or not it’s on track and you’re getting everything completed. What
I find that’s been very important are Milestones, Checklists, Discussions and Pages. Those are
the things that I mainly use, you can use all the other functionalities, it usually
comes within the software once you purchase it as a full license. But the good thing about
Milestones is it allows you to set dates and also tasks that needs to be completed by certain
times and it can be scheduled and tells you exactly what are the things that are due.
The most important thing here is that you want your people who are working for you to
actually complete these in their certain time and that’s the reason why it’s crucial to
have this. Checklists, your tasks, Discussions now as I said I was emailing back and forth.
With Discussions, it allows you to communicate with each other of what’s going on and instead
of having emails, you’ve actually got whole lot of topics that are in here that you’ll
need to talk about and complete. Files are actually to upload any images, or any word
documents or anything that’s related to the project. Finally Pages, I usually use Pages
just to store login information and also any other vital information that goes towards
the website to give the programmers or VAs or anyone managing this particular website
access. So that is just the basic quick overview and
I hope that you’ll be able to use this project management software called ActiveCollab. If
you want more information, just continue to read my blog and I’ll give you the link as
well to it. My name is Tyrone Shum and I hope you’ve enjoyed this ActiveCollab review.
