Task Management Software

"This software rocks golden. Have been looking for this thingy a long time now. My search is over."

" Although I use Microsoft Outlook I found that the task tracking in your software has a better view and layout than Outlook. I like the way that icons can be used for different categories, and the different colours that are used in the main task list make it easier to get an overall picture of outstanding issues."

Hierarchical task planning – What benefits you can gain

Hierarchical task planning – What benefits you can gain from using hierarchical task lists

Without using hierarchical task planning it is harder to manage tasks and projects because methods of planning help you design multi-level project trees and categorized to-do lists. A set of sub-categories added to your todo lists and projects will significantly help you better understand the volume of project work and plan working time required to accomplish your effort. Task hierarchies and project trees allow you to implement multi-level task planning strategies that are characterized by a network approach. By implementing such strategies, you will gain the following benefits:


  • Project Data Decomposition. All information surrounding your project can be efficiently decomposed into simple and easy-to-analyze components that are organized into categories and sub-groups. You will benefit from creating a decomposition of project tasks and a subset of project schedules that are interconnected with each other and targeted at achieving project goals. Your team members will better understand their tasks and contribute to your effort of implementing methods of hierarchical task management .
  • Better Project Control. Organizing dispersed project data into hierarchical templates and categorized to-do lists allows you to get focused on the most frequently used and prioritized tasks when your project gets started. Your project team will get into your specific outlook and will tend to help you follow your project effort.
  • Project Integrity. According to management ideas, when a "parent" group is moved to another location within the hierarchical task list, "child" groups will be also moved to the same location. Therefore, you can benefit from implementing planning methods that maintain the principle of integrity of project data.

Methods of task planning will let you achieve advanced project scheduling and control. By using VIP Task Manager software, you can implement such methods and create todo lists, categorized to-do lists, and multi-level project trees.

VIP Task Manager is a task management solution for team collaboration and project planning. It features Task Tree view that allows creating project trees and organizing project tasks into task hierarchies and to-do lists. Task Tree view is similar to MS Outlook tasks but it offers several additional features that make VIP Task Manager a more suitable software solution for task management and project planning. In Task Tree view you can use templates to plan sample projects. You can use Workflow Editor to customize task workflows.

VIP Organizer is simple task manager software that lets you create hierarchical task lists for managing your personal tasks and planning personal duties. VIP Organizer will be best for scheduling and organizing personal projects.
