One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

we have a project manager who just joined our IT team.  They don't have a lot if experience but are well versed in IT and organization.    any recommendations for good software?  it needs to be able to remind people of deadlines.    It needs to have results published or easily accessible by managers.   she is not a pop buy pretty good at what she does.   I don't want the software to be to complex

First of all, thanks to whoever will help me in advance.

Second, my question is that I got a new job offer from a company as a Team Leader in Linux Administration Department, I'm OK with that but the issue is that I've been asked to re-create the department from scratch that consists of a new vision, system for support, ticketing, project management, employees rating, and services that we will provide.

I need to hear your ideas on how to start building this department, what do I need? and what to read to enrich my knowledge regarding this?

The company gave me an unlimited budget to work with.

Department: Linux System Management, Administration, Monitoring, Backup, Virtual Machines and Storage.

Hope that you can enlighten me with some ideas/softwares that can help.

Best regards,
Wondering what other folks using to manage multiple projects.  Software or app, etc.
I want to find a mechanism to manage multiple projects on the high level.  Then dig into the individual project tasks and so on.  
Anyone can share?
I am using portecle to generate a java store cert for JIRA. I created the keystore, create the key pair, generated the CSR, processed the CSR using third party CA. I then imported the root cert into Portecle. When I import the CA response I get "could not establish trust for the CA reply. The import cannot proceed.
Why is this happening as everything appears correct.
hi guys,

I'm currently managing an IT Operations team. I've been asked by our new head to come up with a way for me/us to measure in some shape or form their progress on a weekly basis.

We use Zendesk for our ticketing system which is very comprehensive. He wants us to find a way of knowing, how many particular jobs were started, closed, including things such as 'what got in the way?'. Along with that, he wants to know a way of measuring project progress in a similar way.

Do you guys have any measuring methods that you use at your work places? Or advised others on how to better do something similar?

Thanks for helping
Could anyone give me info on Jira insights asset management. I am interested to find out where Jira server should be located. I have multiple disconnected sites so I am unclear how the client connects back to the server and if I need to deploy beacon type servers to each site thanks

I have a JIRA instance that experienced problems recently and required a reinstall. Everything seems to be ok but jpeg images that were previously uploaded to projects are no longer showing. This is because images were previously on a different drive to JIRA installation. Now that I am on version 7 of JIRA I cannot change this location or it is not recommended. Is there any impact to simply copying the images to the new JIRA location in c:\porgram files? thanks

Sometimes when receiving an important mail, that might be relevant to a planner Project, it would be Nice to be able to add informaion directly to planner or make a New planner case.

Also a planner desktop app With Notifications would be awesome. Is there a desktop app for Microsoft Planner? Please share the link
I have a very big production server in a VM with lots of web pages and SQL database code.

I want to set up VisualSVN so developers can work on the web and database code.

I have 2 options:
1) copy the production VM with all code, name this DEV-VM, and set up SVN on DEV VM
2) setup SVN on production VM so I don't have duplicate VMs that take up A LOT of space

Which option would you choose and why?

How do I add developers to the bug assignments list in tfs 2015?

My tester is adding bugs to a project and is complaining that there are no developers in the drop-down list of developers to assign the bug to... I'm not familiar with using TFS as a testing platform; is there a TFS role the developer need to be in?
I guess the base question is: What feeds the bug assignments drop-down list?

Please advise.

I am about to embark in the management of my company using JIRA tools.
I have been using trello, Smartsheets,Axosoft , Todoist.Assembla and toodledo.
So I do have some experience with Agile/Kanban.
I have set up JIRA yet I am faced with some "organizational dilemma".
My setup is as follows :
we are 4Developers.
2 fully dedicated to developing
1-Developing + managing the company (tasks/prioirities)
1 Developing + help desk

We are now managing around 30 Customers and we also have our own project (a New software to be launched in 2019)
I got JIRA software + confluence +Service Desk +Tempo Planner.
My question is how to configure JIRA.
1-Do I create a project per customer ? and if yes how to aggregate them later on ?
2-How to link the Service Desk to my project (s) - If I allow 1 customer to post on JIRA Desk shouldn't that ticket be also showing in the project

As you see my problems are related to "business" configuration. And I am expecting to need some help with this.
Where can I get that help ? Coz reading the JIRA help won't be enough. It helps me understand how the tool work , but not what is the best way to configure it !

I'm reading a lot about devops and the new culture behind it.

I m yet puzzled at few issues that I would appreciate some experienced in that field to help me out with.

1-most of the posts and documents I am reading are for a big part emphasizing on testing and how to conduct all types of testings. Is that correct? I mean is really testing the cornerstone of the devops?
2-In my company we are using a web development platform called alphaanywhere and planning to also use instantdeveloper who both are RAD tools.
All the tools that are being advocated by for devops seem to me to work ONLY under Java python rubis and the likes..
I hear a lot of Jenkins / bamboo / git / chef / puppet...
It seems to me that all those tools do not work under the platforms I am using. (Alphaanywhere and instantdeveloper).
I'm a right? If yes then Devops can not be applied in my company? It doesn't make sense to me.
I'm certainly missing something... Please help me understand...

Hi Experts

Does any one know a good and inexpensive program for project management, where I can:

- specify milestones  by project.
- for each milestone, specify tasks.
- for each task, specify hours, % completed, cost, assigned to, add Rich Text notes and attachments.

- combine tasks that I will do this week from multiple projects (Color coded), with running totals of time and cost.

 - for each project, milestone see a summary

Thank you
A quantity surveyor recieves a .mpp file from the architect.

QS is on Project 2016
Architect is on 2013

The file opens but the dates are completely wrong.

Calendar options and date formats look to be set the same on both systems.

Attached files show how it should look, and how it looks on QS PC.

If QS saves the project and sends it back, the wrong dates now show if the architect opens it.

What could the problem be?

We are looking for a good project scheduling program that is similar to the attached image below. We have a Manager that wants it a certain way and does not like Microsoft Project or other ones we have tried.

Does anyone that any good suggestions for a Scheduling Program or one that is like the one below?

Tried finding a link for MS Project 2016 trial but could not get. I teach MS Project, but my students find it difficult to learn it because they cannot purchase it. I purchased MS Project 2007 earlier to teach, but that is old now.

Is there any way I can purchase a cheap student edition type version for myself, and can somehow give some link to my students (who change every year) for learning MS Project but economically?

Hello EE,

Does anyone have an IT/Technology SOW template they can share for IT projects for the business.
I am googling and see a lot, but looking for something that somebody has more IT focused and that works for them.
I am looking for a way to create or pull a report from MS Project that will show projected cost by quarter.

I have attached costs to my project but none of the reports that I can find will show me the cost by quarter. Help is very much appreciated.

I'm about to hand over an infrastructure of few VMs with 2 AD 1SQL 1 exchange etc... with a backup procedure and replication

Any template I could use to start with ? I have never done this before and quite confused on how to make it in a professional way.

An tool ?
