Teamwork Projects Features
Projects - A project is the highest level of organization. Each project has milestones, task lists, and tasks, notes (wiki-like documents), time tracking, and file uploads. Users and company access are handled at the project level.
Time Tracking - You can log time spent doing tasks. Logged work can be marked as billable, which makes invoicing clients easier.
File Sharing - Files can be uploaded and shared within projects. Storage space for uploaded files is limited based on the plan you choose.
Task lists and Tasks - Tasks (to-do items) are grouped into task lists. Lists can be tied to a milestone. A nice feature of Teamwork Projects is the ability to comment on tasks. Sometimes, a task grows into a more complex action item, and having the ability to leave comments / progress reports is nice.
Notes - Notes are documents any team member can edit. Good for tracking projects specs, login information, or other reference material for the team.
Messages - Projects have a message board so team members and clients can talk to each other. Messages can be emailed out to team members, and their email replies will be automatically added to the message board. This setup makes for easy team communication.
What's Exceptional About Teamwork Projects
More Features and Cheaper Than Basecamp - There are many upstart services trying to copy Basecamp. Teamwork Projects is one of the better ones.
Unlimited Companies and Users - Some online project management tools limit the number of active users allowed in their plan pricing.
Risk Register - A unique feature of Teamwork Projects. The Risk Register is where you can post potential problems for the project. For each potential problem, you can assign it a priority (or likelihood of the problem appearing). This feature helps team members and clients watch out for potential snafus that can derail a project.
Email Integration - Get alerts and notifications via email. That's a standard feature. What's great is that you can reply to the message emails, and have your comment automatically appended to the message board for the project.
Tasklist Templates - If you have a standard checklist of tasks for every new client, you'll appreciate the ability to save task lists templates.
Customer Service - I sent the Teamwork Projects team some feedback about changes they had made to one of my favorite features. They got back to me quickly (within 12 hours), and resolved the issue right away! They were genuinely concerned about the feedback, and took my suggestion to heart! Exceptional customer service means talking and listening to your customers, and Teamwork Project passes that test with flying colors.
