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."

Task hierarchy management for project planning and implementation

Task hierarchy management for project planning and implementation

Task hierarchy management is about planning tasks by creating work structures that include multiple levels of granularity. It allows making interrelated and flexible structures which form a single project tree. It is often used in project planning and implementation to create a work breakdown structure (which is actually a multi-level tree of work packages), make multiple assignments, set up task dependencies and manage sub-projects.

Without management it would be hard to organize multifaceted projects and processes. Having a flat list of tasks and simple to-do lists does not allow managers and planners to organize tasks by multiple hierarchical levels. Fortunately, hierarchy management is widely used today and there are software solutions that help create project trees and hierarchical lists. For example, some people use Microsoft Project to plan work breakdown structures (WBS) and hierarchical to-do lists. Also there is MS Outlook software that allows using SharePoint -based solutions to plan multi-level projects and team tasks. 

MS Outlook allows using simple to-do lists to plan and manage daily tasks. Users can benefit not only from Outlook tools but they can also combine emailing capabilities with management functionality. That’s why it seems that task hierarchy in Outlook is very convenient. But real practice shows that MS Outlook users often feel confused when setting up permissions to hierarchical tasks and also meet some troubles when trying to make templates by using Folder List (read this comparison review to know more on this point). 

VIP Task Manager is another example of management . VIP Task Manager features Task Tree view that allows creating hierarchical task lists, planning multifaceted projects, setting team assignments, and organizing entire workflows. Comparing to Microsoft Project , Task Tree view provides a framework for much easier project planning and tracking (read this comparison review to learn more). You can develop templates and share tasks for better exchange .

VIP Organizer is a simple tool for task management and planning. It is designed for individual use. VIP Organizer will be best for daily task planning and to-do list management.
