I’ve recently been working with several customers who are in the midst of deploying Novell Vibe OnPrem. They are very excited at the prospect of opening new channels of communications between their employees, allowing them to collaborate together in a new paradigm: “Work is what you DO, not where you GO!”
One of the questions that comes up most often when working with Vibe customers is “how can we use this to manage projects?” Excellent question!
Does Vibe replace software like Microsoft Project? No, absolutely not! Project managers who manage large projects and need to consider things like Work Breakdown Schedules and Resource Allocations will still need to use such tools. But once the work has started, how do the people involved collaborate on the project? How do they share ideas, issues, solutions? Tasks, appointments, pictures, etc? That’s where Vibe comes in and complements PM software.
In this segment, we look at how you can use the Tasks folder in Vibe to manage small-scale projects. In another segment, we’ll see how to use Task and Milestone folders together to manage larger-scale projects.
Enjoy, and please don’t hesitate to leave some feedback or suggestions or other demos you’d like to see!
