Let us take a quick look at how task management and collaboration simplifies our work
Robust Project & Task Management
Sitting around the table or across the globe, task management, collaboration and communication is just the same.
- Task Groups
You can break your projects into multiple Task Groups. And each of your task groups will have unlimited tasks, sub-tasks and sub sub-tasks. Task Groups allow you to break your project into smaller manageable chunks with detailed tasks breakdown.
You can use Task Groups for:
- Very large complex tasks involving multiple teams
- Modules or phases of your projects depending on specific project needs
- Sprints if running Agile Scrum Project Management
- Task Types and Labels
Proper classification of tasks is very important when running projects. There is also an added complexity when you have specific project types with tasks related to finance, research, content, ideas, issues, billing, design, quality assurance etc.
Over time this could be very confusing and tasks may fall through the cracks. Custom Task Types and Labels allow you to create as many categories and tags as you need to ensure smooth task execution.
- Project Templates
Work smarter with Project Templates in Orangescrum. Most projects we run have a significant tasks overlap and it is frustrating to create the same set of tasks repetitively.
