Many project teams today communicate through email, share plans or progress through spreadsheets and don’t have a good place to share, store or collaborate on documents. MangoApps Projects solves this problem with feature rich team spaces dedicated to creating a collaborative place for internal teams and external guests to work together and share duties in an organized and efficient way on any device.
Collaborate using updates, posts, wikis, documents, file-sharing, and more. All members have access to a project activity feed, making interaction with updates or posts easy. Taking full advantage of the collaboration tools available in MangoApps, projects give users all of the tools to share, contribute, and ask for help in any way they choose.
Creating Projects in MangoApps is easy. Users name the project identifying its use, provide a short description, add a photo, assign hashtags categorize it by department, and assign start/completion dates if needed. Default membership can be set to give new users standard or admin privileges, and the project itself can be set to a variance of access permissions.
When creating or editing a project, the permission level can be set to Public, Private, or Unlisted. Public means anyone with access can join the project, or simply participate and view messages passively. Private projects require membership to view messages or participate, while an unlisted project is an invisible project only accessible to its creator and invited members making it perfect for anything under wraps.
The task management module makes sure that projects stay on track, ensuring the right resources are there to finish on time or on budget. All project members can see associated tasks, monitor its health, or see if it is overdue. A project task pool provides the opportunity for members to assign themselves to a task that is not assigned to a specific member.
Sharing a file in a project is as easy as attaching it to an update, comment, or post. After a file is shared, colleagues can make edits or upload revisions. A history of files is available at anytime, allowing users to access older versions. Admins can also set granular permission levels to indicate the role of contributors as owner/editor/viewer or no access.
All the project work and communication is fully searchable at anytime and stays neatly documented for future reference. Even the content inside the wikis, posts, chats and files is fully searchable. As new employees or members join a project, they can get fully up to speed searching and looking through the project feed for previous communication.
