About & Getting Started

What is progr.es?

progr.es is a web-based project management application.

Oxford defines a project as “an individual or collaborative enterprise that is carefully planned to achieve a particular aim,” and progr.es makes the planning part easy and fun to do.

Any and all types of projects can be created, monitored and run using progr.es.

A typical use may be more business-oriented, since careful tracking of projects is essential for efficient use of your resources, monitoring what work is being done and for financial tracking, but progr.es can be used for your own non-work needs as well. For example: at work you may want to use progr.es to track the progress of an online sale from order to shipment whereas at home, you may want to make sure your babysitter follows exact steps while you are away for the weekend.

Feature-wise: progr.es has a project dashboard so you can monitor all of your projects in one place, and has individual project windows so you can check of project items and make notes.

Projects are broken down into steps called milestones and tasks – with milestones being a collection of related tasks that need to be completed before moving on to the next series of tasks.

A process is simply a project whose steps are well-defined so that the user will pretty much run through the same steps every time the project is run.

Change your avatar

progr.es uses third-party websites for avatars. There are two main sources:

1. Social websites
If you are using Facebook  or twitter to log in, your current avatar on those sites will be used. So to change your avatar, simply change your avatar on those sites.

2. Gravatar
progr.es will search for whether you have a gravatar association for the email address you are using. If one is found, that avatar is used by progr.es. So to establish an avatar, go to http://en.gravatar.com and sign up with the same email address you are using for progr.es. Upload the image you want as an avatar there, and that same image will be used on progr.es (give it some time to be updated across the web). If you subsequently want to update your avatar, return to gravatar to upload a new image.

 

Using time zones

By default progr.es will try to automatically assign you a time zone. To change your time zone, go into your Settings by clicking on your username.

Time zones are used for all time-stamps in projects. Why this matters is that if you are working with project collaborators around the world, you might need to adjust your time zone to view the project as them.

An example:
You are in Europe and your co-worker is in the USA. If you both standardize on the US East Coast time zone, then discussing the project could be easier – for instance, saying the project is due by 5 PM will be seen by both of you in the same way. Of course, progr.es will adjust displayed time based on your time zone (e.g. a milestone due at 5 PM in the US will display as being due at 11 PM in Europe), but it may be simpler for collaborators to standardize on one time zone to avoid misunderstandings.
