Big project App

  • 1.  Big project App

    We are looking for an App or plug in where staff can go and look at big projects we have going on at work. Either a weekly or monthly update on big projects. We are starting to use Slack and thought there might be an App we could link to. Or maybe a plug in we could add to our website.
    Any ideas on an easy to use Big project App?

    Hi Richard -

    That sounds like a great idea but I personally don't know of an App off hand.

    Can you maybe give a bit more detail about what this App should include: What information about the project is displayed? Is the tool updated by one person or can does it need to be participatory and have access for project managers across the organization to update their project?

    The Slack idea might be a great one:? you could have a channel called #project-status and on a regular schedule, PMs from across the org can put their update for everyone to see.

    Does anyone else have any ideas?

    We use Trello.  It is Agile-friendly and can be used for more than just project management.  It also has a Slack plug-in.
