Progman : Online Project Manager
Industry : Project Management

In a Nutshell
The Online Project Manager allows companies to manage projects and project participants online.

Online Project Manager: Overview

1. Staff
2. Sub-contractors
3. Clients
4. Administrators
5. Project Managers
6. System Administrators

Task Assignment
A project manager can assign a task to a user and indicate when the task is to be completed.
Staff can indicate how far they are on a task (percent), and indicate when the task is complete.
Once the task has been marked as complete, an email is sent to the project manager and the task is moved from the staff members inbox, and marked as awaiting approval.
The PM can then review the task and approve or reject the task. If the PM rejects the task, he can add a comment to indicate why that task was rejected.

Email integration
All activities on the Online Project Manager can be forwarded to participants as emails.
Projects can be managed directly from emails; for example, if a staff member wants to ask a question regarding a task, they can just click the add comment link in the email.

Financial Management
Administrators can manage project costs in the Online Project Manager. Administrators can choose from three payment types per participant: per task, per hour, per day.
Project managers can see at a glance, how much has been spent on each project, and how long a project has taken so far. This information can be further broken down by date and participant.

Users are required to login to use the system.
The administrator can restrict what a user can see and do on the system. For example, staff can only see tasks assigned to him/her, and they cannot update the status of a task.
