WhoDoes – Teamwork Made Easy And Attractive

ss-whodoes

If you’re looking for a great way to manage projects and teamwork, then WhoDoes could be the answer. Rebuilt from the ground up and with a beautiful user interface, WhoDoes 2.0 is a great tool for collaborative management. Once you have an account for your company, it’s easy to add team members based on the email domain suffix and get to work. You can create projects with milestones and tasks and share documents through an online repository.

The hub of the WhoDoes experience is the workspace, which gives access to all other functions. Managing most functions is as simple as checking a box, dragging and dropping and typing a couple of lines. The end result is an attractive list of all the areas you need team members to address. This collaborative online tool is available with a wide range of features, depending on the plan you choose, and looks very promising indeed.

Practical Uses:

  • Manage a complex rollout of new products with your entire working team
  • Develop a marketing roadmap and track its progress using WhoDoes
  • Manage your company’s daily operational tasks and action items easily

Insider Tips:

  • Reorder tasks by using a simple drag and drop
  • Use the navigable calendar in the workspace area to get an at a glance view of outstanding tasks
  • Use the team interface to add or change project managers or team members
  • Keep track of project documents by using the online repository

What we liked:

  • The Fast Planning tool is a great way to plan and arrange tasks for your team quickly and easily
  • It’s easy to close tasks and milestones with a simple click, but still have access to them when needed
