New in Doolphy: Task dependencies!

Once again, it is release week at Doolphy. After the improvements in the configuration section and the possibility of creating project templates, this week is the turn of task dependencies.

How do Task Dependencies work in Doolphy?

Setting dependency relationships between 2 or more tasks means linking tasks to each other according to the start or end date. In Doolphy dependencies are created “End to Start”. Between task A and B, an end-to-start dependency implies that task B cannot start until task A is completed. Being able to create this kind of relationships is very important in some projects where it is essential to complete a task in order to start the next one.

Perfect Project Management (Part I) = Marketing Agencies + Doolphy

With this one we are starting a series of posts aimed to explain how companies from different sectors and users with different profiles –which are listed in the new website section “Who is Doolphy for?” – use Doolphy. We will start talking about how Marketing Agencies (Graphic Design, Advertisement, Social Media) can Plan, Execute and Monitor their projects. To do it, we will make use of thefictitious company, Doolphy Marketing Ltd. and its team leader, Martha –they are completely made up names :-P.

  • Planning

The first thing that Martha has to do is to give a name to the project (SEO Strategy Q4-2011) and decide which users are going to be involved in it: James, Christine, David and Martha herself. In addition, she chooses the start and end dates, and assigns the project to its corresponding customer. All this will help her to keep the information in order, and in the future it will help the team to learn from past experiences thanks to the report generation capabilities that are available in Doolphy.

7 Years Old Already: #HappyBirthdayDoolphy!

Hi everyone!

Today, we are especially happy! The reason behind this post is that we’re celebrating a special birthday. It was 7 years ago when a group of entrepreneurs decided to gather together, create a team and start giving life to the Doolphy project.


Some people may think that that was not the best time to launch an innovative project but, as an African proverb says, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now”. No doubt, it was the best time ;)

All Doolphy followers know that during this time we have released many new features, and also we have achieved most of our goals. In 7 years we have been able to form a large Doolphy user community that grows day after day.
