Are you a digital project manager of a large team? Want to increase your productivity? Teamwork is a high quality project development and management tool which helps any business keep on track when trying to complete large projects. When using Teamwork, it’s important to use it efficiently so you can increase overall productivity to get results. The following is a guide on how you can get the best out of Teamwork so you can see profitable results with your business when completing your projects on time.
Plan Your Projects Using Links, Notebooks and Messages
When it comes to starting any major project, it’s important to plan your project out before you start. With Teamwork you can use the link, notebook and message features which allow you to easily create back and forth discussions with fellow team mates about how you will go about finalizing certain aspects of the project. Notebooks are ideal when version control is very important. Messages can be used to discuss your project openly with certain members of the team while the link feature can be used to reference any resources or external sites. In doing this you will speed up certain parts of the project for faster completion.

For Each Phase Of The Project Use A Separate Task List
To make your project run more efficiently it’s best to separate each phase of the project by using a separate task list for each section. In doing this you can break your large project into smaller, more manageable sections which can be completed within the set time frame. Some team members may feel overwhelmed with one big project to complete. However, with assigned milestones for each task, you’ll find your workers will become more efficient in tackling each phase when needed. Milestones can be marked off once complete to show that you’re satisfied with the completed work.
Create Tasks Lists For Different ‘Bugs’
During any project, you’ll come across certain parts that’ll need reassessing. To make sure all your ‘bugs’ are properly worked out within a specific timeframe, it’s ideal to create two separate task lists for each categorized ‘bug’. For example, you could have ‘Major Bugs’ and ‘Minor Bugs’. Major complications mean that they require fixing immediately while minor complication means they can wait a little longer. This helps to streamline the process in a much easier and more productive manner.

To Save Time Use Task List Defaults
If you edit a task, in the ‘Advanced’ tab section you can set the ‘Task List Defaults’. This will help when you’re always assigning the same properties to a certain task. Mobile apps are also able to pick up on these defaults. When it comes to typing a task, simply use shortcuts such as @name (@John) to easily assign the task to someone. If you want to send a notification to their email simply add +notify at the end. This is a great way for everyone to get noticed.
Log Time On Each Task
When working through a task you can use the task timer to log how much time it actually takes to complete each task. Not only does it help to know how much time it takes to complete a job for future reference, but you can also calculate the cost of a project if working on a per hour basis.
For Internal Chatter Use Teamwork Chat
Teamwork chat is a great tool for providing you with completely free chats with clients about any Teamwork project. This chat tool allows you to send questions, files, or notify someone about a specific project. It also allows you to talk with a specific client instantly so you can get the information you need without having to wait for an email to come through. This helps to improve project efficiency greatly.
Use Templates For Task Lists and Projects
When you have a standard set of procedures for certain things like roll-out and testing, you can use Task List templates to make the process much easier. You can setup a template by clicking on Settings > Templates. This will allow you to apply them to a specific project while keeping you organized and saving you time.
