Project Manager Online Ltd. just announced the latest release of their web-based project collaboration software, ProjectManager.com. This latest release provides the project manager with new capabilities of viewing resource availabilities for resources assigned to a given project and specific tasks.
This just released new feature will instantly tell the project manager if a specific resource is actually available to be assigned to the task in question. No more guess work of assigning the resource and then checking to see if they are over allocated. When the user selects a task to assign a resource to, then selects the resource link in the menu bar, the resource popup appears. The popup tells the project manager if the resource has availability to complete the newly assigned tasks based on that resource's availability across all projects. This view will also show other tasks the resource is assigned to for the specified period in case the project manager needs to perform some negotiations to get more availability for that specific resource.
"At Project Manager Online, we understand our user base and we listen to their needs," states Jason Westland, president and CEO of Project Manager Online Ltd. "We know that our user community of project managers are very busy and are trying to manage multiple projects with dispersed teams. Keeping track of those resources, ensuring their 100% productivity, and tracking task progress is often times more than a full time job. We're striving to make that resource management portion as easy as possible because if you lose control of your resources, you lose control of your project. With this newest release, we're making it easier than ever to see conflicts that the project resources have when assigned to project tasks. We're making it easier for the project manager to know that the resource is available to complete the tasks that they are assigned to."
