User Guide / 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.
