Today, we’re introducing you the system of roles and permissions for the users in your team.
What are roles and permissions? How can they help us?
A rol is a set of permissions on specific areas and functionalities of Doolphy which can be configured to define what each user can do in the application.
Thanks to this system you can create a set with a number of different roles that later can be assigned to users depending on the work that they have to carry out.
So far, we have written about our new application and about the model in which it is based. Why is it important for a company to have a tool to manage its projects? Given the current situation of all companies, we all find the necessity of working harder, faster and in several projects at the same time, optimizing expenses in order to obtain the best profitability possible. To achieve this goal the best movement is to learn how to organize our resources and employee time to maximize the functionality of our company. This is not easy though. When a company deals with several projects at the same time, and is possibly composed by a multidisciplinary or geographically distributed team, communication issues may arise. E-mail, telephone, meetings can be used to improve the situation but they aren’t necessarily the best possible way.
This issue is addressed by a number of software solutions such as video conferences, instant messaging, synchronization tools, social networks, etc. However today we want to comment on a tool that is gaining a lot of traction lately: the project management software on demand.
A new year is started and, as it is tradition around these dates, Doolphy brings a bunch of new features such as Comments on tasks, Activity notifications, Recent history. This time they will make Doolphy more social and will make you more aware of the activity of the rest of the members of your team.
2011 is approaching to its end and everyone is closing a cycle of very hard work. The improvements in Doolphy have been very important and we would like to look through all the innovations that we’ve added to it in the course of this very productive year.
We started 2011 with 2 major releases, a new user interface and a Timesheet. They both provide an easier use of the tool. We also decided to release a new Report section, which is particularly useful for analyzing the activity that your team generates in Doolphy as a whole. We too revamped the section on roles and permissions to satisfy your needs regarding the access of information.
Doolphy offers Time Reports to you, a key feature to instantly and globally analyze the effort that you have charged on all your projects in which you’ve been working in.
This week, because of the great amount of recent releases that we have been communicating, we want to put some order and begin a series of posts aimed at improving your experience with Doolphy and how to get more out of it.
This first article is going to be based on project creation, the fundamental first step in being able to optimally manage all the planning, execution and analysis of your work.
Doolphy knows that not all projects are alike and each one has some special requirements in order to be started. Thus, you have 2 different options to create your projects.
Following the line started a few weeks ago, where we explained how marketing agencies use Doolphy, today we want to pay special attention to the main profiles that can be found in any organization, company or team. In this first episode, we want to talk about people directly involved in the project: collaborators.
