Structured project management

The Phase Gate template is used to divide projects into distinct stages or phases.

The template also includes customized notification workflows and reporting.

“As our business needs change, new reports and changes to our project templates can be internally developed in a short period of time. We consistently leverage the design sync feature which allows us to synchronize these improvements to existing projects in a controlled manner”.

Project Reporting for SharePoint

BrightWork Project Management templates for SharePoint include reporting capabilities to track project progress.
Runs on SharePoint 2010, 2013, 2016, and 2019.

Project Reporting

Project reports focus on important details like metrics, issues, open work, and resources, giving project managers the tools to keep projects on track.

‘My Work’ Reports
The ‘My Work’ report is a list of work assigned to the logged-in user. Team members can track and report on their assigned work, and flag issues in one place.

Live Dashboards

Live dashboards provide a real-time summary of key project metrics and KPIs so you instantly see what is happening on your project.

Project Status Reports

The Project Status Report captures a snapshot of the current project status and maintains a historical record of the project’s progress.

Using the Boards web part, project tasks are listed in a Kanban style display for at-a-glance updates. Easily drag and drop cards between columns to update work and address risk quickly.

Project Metric Dashboards

The BrightWork Project Metrics list tracks and captures project metrics (e.g. number of red issues; Project Health; the number of overdue items) and feeds this information to reports, charts, and KPI web parts.

Metric Scorecards

Metrics scorecards display project metric trends over time to help predict the likely outcome of your project. Use out-of-the box themes or customize to suit your reporting requirements.

Metric Tiles

The Metric Tiles web part is an easy way to display metrics anywhere in your project site. Keep key metrics like % Complete, Open Issues, or Project Completion Dates where everyone can see them.

Gantt Charts

The Project Schedule Gantt displays all the items from a project in a structured hierarchical Gantt.

Resource Usage

Resource Usage reports display how project work has been assigned, allocated, or over-allocated in a configurable calendar-like view.
