About iTeamwork.com
iTeamwork.com was created to serve a need for improved project management amongst the members of a team working on the same project. The site is the culmination of an effort to create a system that keeps everyone notified on the status of a project while keeping the mechanics of the project management simple.

Users of iTeamwork have called the system pragmatic. It is vital in any project management system to involve the team members to be part of the solution rather than be an obstacle. Most systems require discipline for ongoing reliability. iTeamwork only requires marking tasks as complete for the system to function. Using email notification takes care of other system functions since email is an integral part of everyone's daily activity.

Beyond all else, we respond to our user's feedback. Project management, although supports some basic principles, can be unique to each person's style. Keep us informed on how you want iTeamwork to work for you and we will attempt to incorporate new features to keep things simple and productive.

The methodology, implementation and interface are kept simple to insure that the focus is on managing projects rather than learning a new system.

To learn more, read the complete overview. As a synopsis, once a project is created, tasks are assigned to team members who are solely responsible for that task. Each member can, in turn, convert the task to a sub-project to break it down to more detailed steps or for delegating to an extended team.

An integral part to the system is email notification. Each team member as well as the project manager has great flexibility in controlling the flow of email. The team can receive a list of outstanding and upcoming tasks as often as daily. Project managers can receive notification of task completion as well as other task management duties.

News
January 8, 2003    Project Notes

The ability to add notes to tasks has become a popular feature. With this release, it is now possible to add notes tied to the project. When adding a new project or modifying an existing project, notes can be added. Project notes are intended to be general information that the team can use regardless of task.

This release also includes various bug fixes and broader support for the display of notes. Specifically, in the My Open Tasks and Tasks Assigned to Others views.

October 30, 2002    Project Templates and Inactive Projects

iTeamwork.com has been updated with a couple new features that work hand in hand. Both features are evident when creating new projects. First, projects can be created by copying tasks from any other project that you have created or currently manage. Due dates for tasks are computed relative to the due date set for the new project.

As of this release, by default, projects are created with an inactive state. The only impact on inactive projects is that no email notifications will be sent until activated. This offers the opportunity to design a project with tasks without email notifications sent for each modification. When creating a new project, it can be set active right from the start by checking the appropriate checkbox. The projects view clearly identifies projects that are inactive with the ability to activate any project when all tasks have been solidified. Once activated, email notifications will be sent.

June 5, 2002    Task Completed - Notes

iTeamwork has been upgraded to support the ability to add notes to tasks. When adding new tasks, a new area is provided to add a note to the task upon its initial creation. More descriptive text related to the task can be entered there as the first note associated with the task. If you have permission to access the task for modification by clicking its description, you can continue to add notes without limit. Each note will be identified by the date it is entered, the user that created it and the completion percentage of the task at the time of the note. This alone will allow team members to add a note each time the percentage is changed.

Furthermore, a new View has been created so that you can quickly access all notes that have been added since the last time you logged into the system. An icon will appear next to a task if notes exist. It can be clicked to view the notes for that task while in the Project Tasks View. We look forward to your feedback on how this new feature helps you or how it can be improved.

April 8, 2002    Task Completed - Percentage Complete

Team members that have been assigned a task can now maintain a percentage completion value to assist project managers with better visibility on a project's status. A project's completion percentage is computed based on the values entered for each task. These percentages are updated appropriately along the project hierarchy should tasks be converted to subprojects. Project managers should notify the project team so that percentages can be updated to reflect the current state of all tasks. Continue to let us know how we can make iTeamwork a better project management tool!

March 30, 2002    iTeamwork Offers Hosting Options

iTeamwork.com allows you to use this service free of charge, but now gives you the option to host the software on your own internal web server or have iTeamwork host a private version on our servers. These options have been created based on the feedback of our users as well as the need to create avenues to generate revenue in order to continue making enhancements.

Installing the software on your own web server gives you the ultimate in security. All aspects of managing the server are under your control.

There is no compelling reason to have us host a private version. If you are a business and are realizing benefit from using iTeamwork, we ask that you consider purchasing a license in order to support our efforts. A private version does isolate your data from everyone else and allows you to control when you upgrade.

February 18, 2002    Task Completed - View Projects Using Tree Format

You can now view your complete list of projects using a tree view that shows the relationship between projects and subprojects. This presents a more visual representation of your project heirarchy to provide a better sense of how the complete project is organized and delegated.

Clicking the Projects link under the View menu displays the projects in the default Active/Completed Projects format. A new link labeled Format allows you to switch between the Project Tree and Active/Completed Projects formats. The seleted format remains in effect during the login session.

February 11, 2002    Task Completed - Manage Team Members

iTeamwork.com has a new, much-requested feature, to manage team members. Managing Team Members will allow you to add team members without having to assign them a task, remove team members, copy a team from one project to another and also have the ability to change various permission settings for each team member.

For specific permission settings, a team member can be given project manager status, prevent a member from adding tasks or prevent a member from viewing tasks other than assigned to him. Restricting the ability for members of a team to view their own tasks is useful when involving members from other companies where you might not want them to view the entire project. This may also apply when restricting the ability to add tasks.

February 4, 2002    Task Completed - iTeamwork gets a face lift

More than just cosmetics, this "new look" improves on navigation to provide an even more intuitive experience. Generally, the changes were kept to a minimum to create a new software base that will allow for the addition of new features more easily. One minor change, for example, is that the main Projects view separates Active Projects from Completed Projects.

A couple of new features that will be integrated soon are the ability to manage team members and the ability to create task dependencies.

The new team manager will have such features as allowing a project creator to assign project manager status to other team members, delete team members and copy team members to a new project.

Creating task dependencies sets up a relationship between tasks that establishes the start of a new task to begin when some other task is completed. For iTeamwork, this means that an email notification is automatically sent to the assignee of the new task as soon as the dependent task is marked as complete.
