Type of article:Insights/Blog


Projects are often very long and complicated. We all know the end result that as a team we have to achieve, but what about fitting the puzzle pieces that go on to make the whole picture? We are focused on project deadlines, and tend to give less importance to the process that is being followed to achieve the target. Your Crrux hive is a relief when it comes to managing your team's work end-to-end through projects.

#1 Add tasks and checklists

Tasks are an integral part of project completion. Along with your teammates create tasks and tag it to the relevant project. Every task can be further taken as a separate goal, and you can create a checklist of activities or to-do’s that need to be accomplished to complete the task. Drag and reorder checklist items to prioritize and tick off each one as it gets done.

#2 Add task doers

At times a task might not be a single person job, it may involve other teammates. Put down your task objective and tag the teammates who are part of the task as task doers. 

The checklist items can be rearranged according to the flow of work, this also helps to know the dependencies within the task doers.

#3 Priority, status, deadlines

A task is irrelevant without a start and end date, so set that deadline. Whether critical, high, medium or low, set a priority for your task. This helps you clear out all the important stuff before you can move to the not so important ones. 

Whether the task is upcoming, completed, suspended or if work is in progress, setting a status for every task helps your project team to function in an organized way.

#4 Progress dashboard

Your projects dashboard is a good way to look at your progress at work. You get an overview of the amount of work that’s on your plate with the loading factor indicator. Whereas, the timeliness indicator tells you how effective or ineffective you have been at your tasks, and the number of tasks that have been delayed or completed early. Besides, you also get to know the number of upcoming tasks, which helps you plan in advance and clear out current tasks accordingly.
