  • http://www.elementool.com/blog/?p=486&referral=AglSchYouTube In this clip I’m going to show you how to create an agile project schedule. As you know, in agile development we take the project and divide it into mini projects called Sprints. There are many advantages to using the agile method of sprints. A few major ones are: • Agile development gives you better control over the project – when you run a project, there can be many factors that you need to control. Such as resources, tasks, clients, etc. The more variables there are, the greater the changes are that something will go wrong. Dividing the projects into sprints, gives you better control over the project process since the sprints are shorter and require you to worry about a limited number of factors. • It makes it easy to keep the project on schedule – if your project is a few months, or a year long, it makes it harder to estimate the project’s schedule. Who can predict what might happen 6 months from now? When you divide th

  • http://www.elementool.com/blog/?p=482&referral=ETAYouTube Visibility is one of the main reasons why projects fail. It means that the project manager doesn’t have a full picture of the project’s progress at any given moment. When you have full visibility, you’re able to stop bottle necks in your project’s progress. This allows you to make changes to the project plan and find ways to solve these bottle necks before it is too late. I would like to introduce a new feature, The ‘Task Completion Date’ that will allow you to know at any given moment what the status of your project is, and when tasks are going to be completed, by integrating Elementool’s Issue Tracking and Scheduling. As you remember from our previous clips, you can use Elementool’s Scheduling to define the project’s schedule and the start and end date of each issue that is assigned to the team members. You can watch the clips called ‘How to Create Project Schedule’ on our blog for more details on how to build the project

  • https://www.elementool.com/Services/joinPage/joinPage.aspx?freetrial&referralTimeMngYouTube We want to talk to you about personal time management. This subject is a little bit of a detour from our more specific project management program. But we believe that time management is an issue that affects everyone, and it’s important that you know how to deal with it. Your ability to maximize your team and your own productivity by maximizing your time and how you use it will greatly influence the results you get. That’s why we’re going to help you improve your time management by sharing some simple strategies that you can implement immediately. They’re easy, and you’re going to start seeing amazing results right away. The best methods for upping productivity are based on two key objectives: The first objective is to capture all the things that need to be done – now, later, someday, big, little, or in between – into a logical and trusted system that’s outside of your head and off your mind.

  • https://www.elementool.com/Services/joinPage/joinPage.aspx?freetrial&referral=NewDepYouTube I’d like to tell you about new options that we added to the Field Dependency feature. This is a very helpful feature that allows you to quickly locate and select relevant information when filling out a form. The Field Dependency feature enables the creation of relationships between fields in such a way that a dependant field’s value list is determined based on a value selected in the source list. For instance, let’s say that you have two fields on a form: State and City. The State field lists all 50 states in the U.S., and the City field lists the 10 largest cities in each of those states. Currently, without using Field Dependency, the State field list shows all 50 states and the City field displays a long list of 500 cities in those states. So if a user wants to choose their city from that list, they need to scan through all 500 to find the one they want. However, by using the Field Dependenc

  • https://www.elementool.com/Services/joinPage/joinPage.aspx?freetrial&referral=SndRprtYouTube Today I would like to present two new features that we added to the reporting section: • The option to define the view type of the Quick Reports. • The option to automatically send a daily report by email. The reports offer 5 view types: • Normal – this is the standard report type that is display on your browser. • Dynamic – The Dynamic view type enables you to make changes to the issues directly on the report. This allows you to update multiple issues in a single update instead of opening each issue separately. • Print View – this is a printer friendly view of the report, that is useful in case you wish to print the report. • Excel CSV and Excel HTML – these two view types enable you to export the report to an Excel file. Each offers a different Excel formatting option and you can choose the one that suits you the most. We added an option to define the view type of each Quick Report. It save

  • https://www.elementool.com/Services/joinPage/joinPage.aspx?freetrial&referral=TrkTimYouTube In this clip I’ll show you how you can use Elementool to track the time that team members spend on issues. Tracking time enables you to view the progress of the project and make changes to the project plan if needed. It is also useful for billing in case clients pay you by the hours you spent developing their projects. To start using this feature, you should have the Issue Tracking and Scheduling services, because time tracking is done using the integration between Issue Tracking and Scheduling. The first step is to submit the issues to the Issue Tracking account and assigned them to your team members. I’m guessing you already know how to do that. If not, please see the Issue Tracking User Manual clip for instructions. The next step is to assign the issues to a project or projects in the Scheduling service. To do that, please follow these steps: • Switch to Scheduling. • Click on Edit Schedul

  • http:www.elementool.com?referral=YouTubeHabits We at Elementool have been happy to share our secrets about how to practice good project management. But we also recognize that there is more to your job than just the technical process of managing projects. Right. That’s why we’d like to take a moment to talk about the process of learning and the process of change. These are big ideas that affect the way you perform as a project manager, so they’re really worth exploring on their own. When you’re managing a project, you are always adapting to new changes as they come along. On a larger scale, you also frequently have to make changes in the way that you and your team function on a regular basis – and you may find that some people on your team resist those changes, no matter how logically you explain the benefits of that change. Even if you force them to implement changes, if they don’t truly accept the importance of the change, it’s likely that they’ll resist and eventually go back to t

  • http://www.projectmanagementformula.com/ As you know, we here at Elementool (http://www.elementool.com/?referral=YouTubePMF have been telling you the ins and outs of project management. We've talked about how to get the information you need from your client, how to document it, and how to use our requirements management software to get your project up and running. And I'd like to think that we've helped make that process a simple and rewarding one. Definitely. But the truth is that all that planning and foundation-laying won't amount to much if you aren't prepared to properly schedule your project and practice responsible time management. That's right. Time management is a key element of good project management, and to manage time, you need a project schedule. The project schedule determines how the project plan is going to work. It clarifies the way that the team will pursue the project's objectives, and it lays out a timeline showing when the team will accomplish each of its
