Overview
The Project Monitoring Center is used to organize and schedule a project, from design to delivery. It allows you to define the tasks that must be performed in a project, the developers working on it, the durations, the status of progress, ...
Once all the project tasks have been defined, the Project Monitoring Center takes care of everything. Entering the time spent on a task is almost automatic, it requires no specific action and it generates no particular constraint. See Time management for more details.
When the relevant project is opened, the Project Monitoring Center requests or indicates the current task. As soon as a task is completed, all you have to do is indicate that this task is over and specify the new task.
A task can be linked to a project element (window, report, ...). Whenever the relevant element is opened, the time spent on this element is counted and stored in the Project Monitoring Center. Conversely, the element corresponding to the task that you want to perform can be automatically opened from the task list.
Each developer can also see his own task list in the "Project Monitoring Center" pane.

Features

Two use levels

The Project Monitoring Center is used to manage the schedule of a project.
The Project Monitoring Center proposes two levels of use:

    Note: If you are using an earlier version of the Project Monitoring Center, the login of the administrator may correspond to "SUPERVISOR" (without password).
  • Use by a contributor:
    The contributor can view his schedule, add or move tasks, configure his timetable, modify the status of a task, ...
Note: A contributor can create a project and he can be responsible for this project. In this case, the project manager will be able to define for this project the tasks to perform, the contributors, ...

Tasks assigned to the administrator

Once all these parameters have been defined, the statistics regarding the project monitoring can be displayed (completed elements and elements to perform).
