Overview reporting and improved activity logs

This release brings the first phase of the executive-level, top-down, overview table, incorporating as much useful existing functionality as possible.*

The overview dashboard has been designed to ultimately empower executives and managers to make strategic, portfolio-level decisions about project progress and performance. The overview table and accompanying infographics, will provide a real time snapshot of all live grids (delivery commissions/projects) detailing their: owners, status, the constituent elements and the constituent task progress within.

This release also includes the addition of ‘assign’ activity in your activity logs.

Remember: all of these dashboards/reports have print and export functionality.

This release – phase one of the overview table

Updated grid level activity log, now with assign activity


*Over the coming weeks and months, the dashboard will become increasingly more sophisticated; below is a screen from the design deck to illustrate what we are ultimately developing.

A glimpse into the future dev for your Overview dashboard

You can follow our development roadmap here (enabling structured knowledge + project/task management = repeatable professional service excellence). Designed and built to make your business operations hum!


Next up for our fast-moving development team?

We will be working on new grid element display rules – due for release on 27/03/20.

The new rules will allow you to set different colour rules for elements at the grid level i.e. when viewing a grid, you can change an element colour to reflect when:

  • An element is overdue (new rule)
  • A task on an element is overdue (new rule)
  • When all tasks on an element are complete (currently available)

New rules feature from design deck

Please continue to keep the feedback and new feature ideas coming (there is nothing we like more).

Is there a feature you would love to see us add to our development stack? If so, please let us know in the comments below or email [email protected]
