TeamLab project management module enhancements

As promised in the previous post about our roadmap, 3 days ago we released the new interim version of the TeamLab portal. Considering that the largest number of improvements was introduced in the Projects module, I’d like to tour you through its new features and enhancements.

Time tracking

We have added an optional Time Tracking feature to Projects module. Now you can log time and add details to the accomplished work directly from the Tasks page by clicking on the clock icon against the task title.

Under the Time Tracking tab you can take a quick look at how much time you and your teammates have spent working on a particular task within a project. Here you can also edit work time & description and generate time-tracking reports in one click.

As I’ve mentioned above Time Tracking is optional. You can disable this feature along with other TeamLab modules and features on the Settings page. It’s also possible to change order of the tabs within Community and Projects modules.

Easier file management

Managing project-related files becomes more convenient. Now you can organize all your files by categories and get access to the required data instantly. File version support allows you to update version of any file. Later on you can refer to previous versions in case you need to restore any information.

Now it’s also possible to attach files to tasks so that user working on a specific task can access useful documents easily.

Project tags

You can add multiple tags to projects and then organize them and search for the necessary ones quickly using the Tags filter.

Tasks – drag & drop sorting

In previous versions project tasks were sorted automatically: first by priority and then by creation date. Now you can manually sort tasks within a milestone.

Tasks with no assignee

You can create tasks with no assignee. This can be useful in the project planning phase when you know what should be done to complete a milestone but aren’t sure to whom you should assign a task. Later on any of your teammates can accept the task by clicking on the appropriate button.

Enhanced reports

Now you can save report parameters as a template and adjust settings to have reports automatically generated and delivered via e-mail.

On many pages within the project management module you can also find links to view reports automatically generated for the related content.

Discussions – manage subscribers

Now you can invite any portal member to join a project discussion. This can be useful in case you need to discuss a project-related issue with a person who doesn’t participate in the current project.

So, these are all the Projects improvements. In the further posts I will cover the rest of the new TeamLab features. Stay tuned 😉

  • Personality tests and star sign compatibility reports.
    However, many of these sites also cover people who want to
    learn more and share more. These individuals also drift away from family and friends and start experiencing
    drastic mood swings.

  • Anthony, currently, you can't sort milestones in templates. But when you have created a project based on this template, milestones will be sorted normally. You can vote for the sorting option of milestones inside templates here

  • What about the ability to sort milestones? Even when I change the due date (week wise) on the project templates, they still present themselves in the wrong order.

  • This is a great tool. Also, it would be great if you guys could add a resource management are where PMs can assign hours to a resource for a particular project. Maybe in tabular layout and then you can view by department too.

  • Gabe, yes, iPhone app will be iPad compatible. There are no third party iPad/iPhone apps, but our apps will be released soon, please wait this little bit :)

  • Hi, I saw the reply about the iPhone app due this spring and I am very excited about this and will gladly pay whatever it costs (especially if it is iPad compatible) but till then is there any third party iPad/iPhone apps known to work with teamlab?

  • How to change priority of tasks? I cant do this by drag&drop and cant see it while editing tasks.

  • Christopher, thanks for your feedback!We are going to release mobile app, optimized for iPhone, this spring. As for offline access, it is not in our nearest plans. But we will try to realize it as soon as possible according to our users requests.

  • Wondering if you've tight about an iPad/iPhone app with offline access? The teamlab portal is wonderful, but it would be great if I had a mobile interface with offline access for when I'm stuck without Internet access, or I just want to add notes on a project.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who would pay 5+ $ for an app that gives me is kind of access!!!

    Thanks for this wonderful tool!!! no idea how useful this is for me!
