Project Management Software

Project management software has the capacity to help plan, organize, and manage resource tools and develop resource estimates. Depending on the sophistication of the software, it can manage estimation and planning, scheduling, cost control and budget management, resource allocation, collaboration software, communication, decision-making, quality management and documentation or administration systems.

We would like to keep tracking of many things, to produce reports based on date interval, etc.  Kind of things we would like to track are not necessarely "computer/network related":

  • Grant/Revoke access rights (computer, building access, etc)
  • Keep a list of downtime
  • Keep a tracking of non-conformity
etc...

Does anyone have a suggestion?  Preferably an Online solution.  We have seen many ISO27001 solutions, but they are all expensive.

(PS: We are actually using JIRA for task related actions, but it's not really good for reporting and it's more a solution to keep tracking of progress on a project related task)

Thanks you

Become a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

Greetings,
We are testing Project Pro Online. We use SharePoint online as well. We copied a test project file as well as a master resource list into SharePoint Online. We are unable to select the master resource list from within the test project (even with both of them open) when going to Resource > Resource Pool > Share Resources as the pop up does not show the master resource list in the drop down (which is open and in the same SharePoint library folder).

I have researched this and found it is a common problem but was wondering if this was now working or if there is a workaround. If not, any help with migrating / copying the resources from the master resource list to Project Online resource center is appreciated, if that is the correct method to use Project Online resources.  

Thanks for any help - I am new to this.

I am working in Service Now focusing on CMDB - the machine database. I would like to export all of the VMs and note what applications are associated with each VM. Is there a way that I, a common user, can accomplish this? I see a reports generation tool but I quickly got into the weeds with all the options. The report is very simple: Server Name, Applications

We have a new client we have brought on-board.  They have several locations, 25 to be exact and each location is in need of major upgrades to data, phone, pc's etc...  We are looking for the most user friendly way our support staff can create some type of timeline or chart to show what needs to be done for each site and the current progress, preferably something we can share with the client if need be.  What do you all use, it needs to be cost effective, we are a very small company so we dont have the funds some of the larger MSPs have.   Thanks in advance.

A user has been using Microsoft Project Online Professional for creating and saving project plans to Sharepoint, but suddenly the option in Save As to Sharepoint is no longer in the available options. What could be the reason for this?

I have recently setup an atlassian organisation and added my domain name. This has pulled in a number of user accounts that registered with atlassian using my domain name as they were invited to my customers Jira. The accounts are referred to as “managed accounts”. by Atlassian. All good except I have to pay for this privilege. Is there a better way if managing the accounts as my atlassian organisation is fully connected to my azure AD instance. Thanks.

I am attempting to create an automation in Jira (Atlassian) service desk software.
Having created a front end form, with relevant fields and check box lists.
Which is working mostly as it should.
The automation creates and allocates the information correctly....
with the exception.....my automation picks up all of the fields (check-boxes) selected and creates sub-tasks for all the check-box fields, however it does not differentiate between the ones that have been selected, and ignoring the ones that have not.

Therefore still presents all of the sub-tasks on the form (as tasks) - including as I say the ones that have not been selected.

As a total newbie to this I am sure it is in the if / then / else part of the automation....but am scratching my head wondering what I am not seeing.

Could be that I have to create some additional JQL statements to fulfil?
Not sure.
Still investigating

Any assistance or pointers gratefully received.

in our company (1000 - 10000 employee) we are going to establish a new department for software development so what are the best tools to:

1- manage software versions.
2- manage team tasks.
3- manage the development processes.
 
another question:

what are the usual processes for stakeholder requests and changes?

Be informed that we are using Microsoft technologies for software development.

Best regards.

Amazon Web Services

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

I have an interesting request to build or advise on an expert system, now known more commonly as a KBS or Knowledge Based System.

The reason is that this team are encountering many examples of same or similar problems, where they spend a lot of time re-inventing similar solutions. Ideally, they need a database that can intelligently and [semi]automatically connect the dots between hundreds of similar problems and solutions; in other words, an inference engine connected to a database.

Criteria
1. Search results need a trust raking for the likelihood of a correct solution.
2. New information (problems and solutions) must be easy for a technician to enter, and in a structured format.
3. Database must be both machine and human readable.
4. Must be OS agnostic (web based).

So far, I have found a lot of technical and conceptual papers on this subject, but I haven't found a ready to use application. :(
FYI, here is an interesting document from AAAI: https://www.aaai.org/Papers/IAAI/2005/IAAI05-014.pdf

Questions?
1. Can this be accomplished, as an add-on, with the tools we already own?
2. What KBS systems are available that are either open-source, free, or relatively inexpensive?

We currently use Confluence, Confluence Questions, Jira, Bitbucket, Freshworks Freshservice, and Slack. I have reviewed many of the plugins available and none seem to offer KBS-like functionality. :(

Google Search?
Search results seem to be help desk …

Anyone have experience of Jira Software vs Workfront for project management?
What can Jira do that Workfront can't?
Why one or the other?
If using both, how is the integration between the two (I see there is an integration toolkit to connect the two).

Hi,

I run an app and web development agency. We always have approx 25-35 projects (websites or apps) on the go at any one time. We have been using a mixture of different tools to manage our client’s projects over the last few years.

We’ve trialled and tested several different tools and software to manage each project but always end up back using Trello and Google Sheets.

We are now considering building our own software to manage all of our projects as we can’t find one piece of software to manage our entire process, HOWEVER I would like to explain our requirements to see if anyone here can recommend a tool / software that will facilitate our needs before we go building a bespoke web app to manage our client’s and projects.

REQUIREMENTS

01 - ability to add leads manually

02- ability to collect leads from your website (via contact form)

03 - ability to change ‘leads’ to ‘live’ to ‘completed’ etc

04 - ability to have a predefined set of tasks auto created each time you create a new lead or change the stage / status of a project (‘lead’ to ‘live’ etc)... every project and stage has common tasks that we do for each project so I’d like these common tasks to be auto created per project and stage

05 - ability to control who sees what tasks (don’t want developers seeing financial or client business tasks... and don’t want clients seeing internal dev snag lists that we create... at the moment we manage this via Trello but it means we have to create 2 separate…

Our Organization offered an excellent opportunity and I would like to take advantage of the opportunity.   We have a project to develop web portal and other applications. Our Organization sells cloud service (B2B) and we have tens of customers and thousands of users. Our customers from the public and private sectors. Our Organization has contracted with a vendor to do all development tasks and I am a single point of contact with the vendor and I have experiences in Programming , IT support and Management. This position needs specific skills and knowledge so, I will be happy to receive your advices about :
-      Best practices of communication with vendor
-      Procedures of development web application and templates or other resources and tools I should use.
-      I do not want to let the vendor to build architecture of applications and DBs without get back to us.
-      improve Response time , traffic and web application performance.

Your help will open the future in front of me.

Thank you

Hi!

I can not make SSO with crowd working. I have set up SSO, as desribed in the articles for Jira and Confluence, but can not make it work.

If I log in to Jira with a Crowd User and then change to Confluence I have to log in again.
I have checked the cookies. The Crowd Cookie seems to be there, like you can see here:
Cookie.png
This cookie somehow seems to be ignored on my Jira, Confluence and crowd.

The urls I have set up for Jira, Confluence and Crowd are:
https://jira.braunstein-web.com/
https://confluence.braunstein-web.com/
https://crowd.braunstein-web.com:8096/crowd/

So they all are sharing the braunstein-web.com domain.

The crowd directory for Jira and Confluence is set up correctly with the above url and is working. Just Single Sign On does not work.

The username I use is "armin". This user is inside the groups "jira-administrators", "jira-users", "confluence-administrators", "confluence-users", "crowd-administrators".

On Jira I am using the SSOSeraphAuthenticator, on Confluence the ConfluenceCrowdSSOAuthenticator.

I also tried to switch off the "Require consistent client IP address", but also did not help.

Please find the debugging log of crowd here:

I'm using MPXJ to read Microsoft Project files (.mpp), but the current version of MPXJ (7.2.1) seems to refuse to read Lookup fields when I change a field to have a different name.

For example, create a new project, show Text1, set it to Lookup, add 0 and 1 to the Lookup list, and rename Text1 to anything ('Test'). Now generate a task and set it's Text1 (Test) to 1.

Now you can't read the 1 in Text1 (task.getText(1) returns null).

We parse many files, some of them are quite large, so it's not possible for me to continually modify our customers' headers, read them in, and then change them back. Further, I don't see any way to modify them programatically.

Has anyone else found this issue? Does anyone know how to workaround/fix this behavior?
