At the core of any work management platform is good project management software. Ours is great. Deliver everything from simple projects to complex programs and general business processes, on time and on budget.
Deliver On Time, Every Time
Turn Anything Into
An Assigned Task
If you can add an assignment, status and due date to it, then it’s a task that gets tracked to completion.
Your project managers will love the ability to create tasks that range from simple follow-ups to a conversation to a list of to-dos or creating a complex deliverable that takes sustained focus and an extended timeline to deliver.
Task management in SmartSuite starts here. Records are where the work gets done on a daily basis. Customize each record with our over 40 field types, then track it towards completion, assigning team members to entire programs, projects, or records within a process workflow.
Take a quick look and see what the status of an assignment is, plus the due date. With a quick color code, you can see if your process is on time, or if you need to give the team a push across the finish line.
Treat sub items as building blocks to your larger, complex deliverables. You can use any of our field types to build out complex work plans, assigning individual sub items to different team members all working towards the same goal. Teamwork makes the dream work!
Checklist items are simple, informal to-dos that can be assigned an owner and due date. They're either open or closed and are perfect for tracking those small details that often get lost in space...or notebooks.
Just like in-person discussions, comments in SmartSuite conversations often trigger some form of follow-up action. That’s why any comment within a conversation can be assigned to a team member and tracked as a task until it’s resolved.
