All about Project Calendars
From the outside looking in, managing projects seem like pure pandemonium, but successful agencies know better — there’s a method to the madness, especially in the core areas of project management, a.k.a the 4 Ps (process, profit, people, projects).
When it comes to Projects, only well-designed calendars and schedules can bring the order and accountability required to deliver top-notch creative work on time and within budget.
And we’ve got the top tips and tricks to help you tame the chaos of project management!
How to create a Project Calendar
A project calendar shows you all the tasks, their deadlines, and who they’re assigned to.
No wonder it’s a must-have tool to keep an entire project transparent and the whole team accountable.
In project management, the most commonly used are base calendar, project calendar, resource calendar, and task calendar.
I’m sure it won’t come as a surprise to you that each calendar type has its pros and cons.
The good news is, choosing the right calendar isn’t rocket science when you know what each type is for.
Dive into our nifty guide and discover everything you need to know to pick AND create the right calendar for your projects.
Pro Tip: As a Workamajig user, you have an easier way of managing project schedules, from creating new tasks to updating schedules to meet current needs. Want to unlock the secrets to schedules designed to work for you? Watch this video now!
