How Deskera compares to Microsoft Project | Earned Value Management and User Experience

Rest of the series: Project Planning We know how Deskera lets you work on Microsoft Project files on the web. But that's not all, Deskera offers much more than just Microsoft Project on the web. Simplicity As we've noted earlier, 80% of Microsoft Project users use only 20% of its numerous features. So at Deskera we've simplified a lot of rarely used Microsoft Project functions to deliver a more capable, yet simpler, project management methodology. Earned Value Management All the main EVM values are calculated by Microsoft Project, including: Budgeted Cost of Work Scheduled (BCWS), Budgeted Cost of Work Performed…

How Deskera compares to Microsoft Project | Project Planning

We know how Deskera lets you work seamlessly on Microsoft Project on the web. But that's not all, Deskera offers much more than just Microsoft Project for web.

To-Do Lists for Project Management

To-Do Lists for Project Management

What's the difference between tasks and to-dos? Okay, let's get that out of the way first. Tasks have start dates and end dates and dependencies. To-dos don't. They are rather simplistic in nature, the kind of stuff you often forget. Both tasks and to-dos are assigned to resources. To-Dos by nature are simple, and we've kept them that way. It's quick and easy to create them, group them and assign them. Let me show you how easy it is to use Deskera To-Dos: Creating a To-Do: Describe the to-do and assign it to a resource. If you don't specify a…
Calendar and Event Management

Calendar and Event Management

Tasks are undoubtedly the focal point in Project Management. However all projects still revolve around countless meetings, briefings and other events. Today, more often than not, people rely on individual calendars to manage their time, which differ by platform and features even. Although compatibility and integration capabilities are greatly improved, we still end up shuffling between multiple desktop/web-based/mobile calendars. Hence the inclusion of a powerful calendaring and scheduling engine in Deskera. Each project has its dedicated calendar(s), all events are shared among team members. No more sending countless invitation emails, waiting for RSVPs, etc. Let me show you how simple…
Project Plan and Web-based Gantt Chart

Project Plan and Web-based Gantt Chart

Let me take you through the Project Plan in Deskera The Task Grid lists out all your project tasks along with their duration, dates, predecessors and resources. Now it not only looks like an Excel sheet, but acts like one too. We find it much easier to edit task details in the cells in the classic Excel fashion rather than having to Click to open a form Find the fields you want to change and then key in the information and finally Click to close the form (and some people seem to throw in a confirmation message everywhere just for…
