New: Clean and simple navigation

PMRobot has a great new menu and navigation system!

We've always had the most features, but sometimes it's been a bit difficult to actually find them. :)

Those days are over.

Everything is now right at your fingertips.

We've crunched through over a year of logs and statistics to determine the most frequently used pages, and put them right up front.

The less popular (but equally useful) pages have been moved to a secondary menu.

They're still easy to access, but don't get in the way of your day-to-day work.

We've also improved the "quick submit" box by moving it to the left and sprucing it up:

...and don't forget -- PMRobot works great on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets!

We hope these improvements help save you even more time, and make your day just a bit more pleasant :)

We're continuing to work hard every day to make PMRobot faster and easier for you.

What do you think of the new navigation?

Take a vacation from project management!

Project management is great fun, but sometimes you need a break!

You might start packing up your laptop and smartphone to continue working the entire time.


Perhaps you'd like a real vacation?

In that case, you probably need to assign a point of contact to help your project run smoothly while you're away.

So how can PMRobot help with this?

We've built in a number of features to assign a "helper" to interface with your team members and clients while you're away.

All recent activity is listed in the Newsfeed, making it easy to see, at a glance, what needs attention.

The Member Overview feature lets you view another member's dashboard.

Meanwhile, you can use Redirect Clarification to redirect questions posed to people that are away.

Read the full details in our new tutorial entitled "Going on vacation."

Drag and Drop Sorting + Gantt Charts

This week we introduced two great new features!

Now you can spend less time managing and more time getting things done.

Drag and Drop Sorting

Instead of dealing with the abstract notions of high, normal, and low, we now use the Agile concepts of Current, Backlog, and Icebox to give an indication of the order in which groups of tickets will be worked on.

Within these main priority levels, you can simply drag tickets up and down to fine-tune the exact ordering of individual tickets.

Try it now at:

Gantt Chart

This week we also introduced a new beta feature: the Gantt Chart.

A Gantt Chart gives you a quick, visible overview of upcoming milestones and resource allocations.

You can also see at a glance which tickets have not yet been assigned.

Give it a try right now at:

Don't forget...

PMRobot keeps everything in one place, making your job easier.

No more information scattered across 7 different tools.

With PMRobot, there's only one tool to learn, and one place to search for all your files, tasks, and project information.
