Microproject is a project management system that helps entrepreneurs, small business owners, and visionaries stay focused on their goals. Created with a “whiteboard-like” interface, Microproject puts all of a user’s tasks, messages, and looming deadlines on a single page. While companies that use other project management systems are spending time updating multiple to-do lists and reading project status sheets on a daily basis, business leaders that use Microproject are racing toward the finish line and impressing clients with their companies’ speed and agility.
Pick your first Microproject and create an account with a name, email, username, and password to get started. Once you’re logged in, getting set up is easy thanks to the web-app’s preset project modules. Microproject sets each page up like a Gantt chart, and features drag and drop functionality to make switching deadlines and due dates a breeze. If it looks like your options on Microproject are limited, that’s not your imagination. Microproject’s creators intentionally limited the number of options available to project managers at any single time to create focus. Microproject limits each user to having no more than six tasks per half day, so there’s no way to become inundated or overloaded with everything that needs to be done. Microproject also limits each task description to 140 characters, as yet another tool for fighting against information overload. Once you’re done getting set up, your tasks, deadlines, contacts, and documents will all be visible on a single page – as will all the tasks, deadlines, contacts, and documents that your colleagues have added to their Microproject accounts.
In addition to helping small businesses and startups manage projects effectively, Microproject also fosters collaboration among teammates. The system includes advanced messaging and document uploading features. For people who have the tendency to get overwhelmed at work, Microproject is a solution that managers and entrepreneurs in nearly any field can start using with their teams.
