PMI’s New Media Council: Count Me In!

. This group was launched in October 2008 to help PMI and its members understand new and emerging trends in the project management profession, especially those being discussed in new media channels: blogs, podcasts, social networks, Twitter, etc. I believe this is an outstanding initiative that will help to bridge the gap between traditional project management techniques and opportunities for enhancing collaboration on projects that are offered by the development of the Web. I’d also like to note that, by joining the Council, I found myself in a great company. The other influential voices that form the panel are: •    Bas de Baar, Project Shrink •    Cornelius Fichtner, The Project Management Podcast •    Dave Garrett, Gantthead •    Elizabeth Harrin, A Girl's Guide to Project Management •    Hal Macomber, Reforming Project Management •    Jerry Manas, PMThink! •    Josh Nankivel, PM Student •    Chalyce Nollsch, PM Bistro I’m sure you know many of them already, but if you don’t, I strongly encourage you to check out the blogs of my fellow council members. You’ll find plenty of helpful information that you can use every day while working on your projects.

Folder Permissions: Greater Control Over Data Editing Rights

Folder Permissions: Greater Control Over Data Editing Rights

For many of you, Wrike has become the central hub for collaborating with team members, contractors, freelancers, clients, and partners. But as companies grow and projects begin to involve more and more people, many of you began asking us for the ability to provide more granular control over data management in Wrike, allowing you to keep company structure under control, while still giving departments a space to work without bureaucratic restrictions. In this case, the brand new Wrike Enterprise feature, folder permissions, comes in very handy because it allows you to choose what different users or user groups can do within the shared folders.For many of you, Wrike has become the central hub for collaborating with team members, contractors, freelancers, clients, and partners. But as companies grow and projects begin to involve more and more people, many of you began asking us for the ability to provide more granular control over data management in Wrike, allowing you to keep company structure under control, while still giving departments a space to work without bureaucratic restrictions. In this case, the brand new Wrike Enterprise feature, folder permissions, comes in very handy because it allows you to choose what different users or user groups can do within the shared folders. Two Access Levels: Full and Limited Imagine you've just launched a big project. You've carefully thought out its main phases, defined possible task statuses, set up milestones, and reflected all this neatly organized project structure in Wrike. Now you face a challenge. You need to keep this structure unchanged while sharing project data with people you need to collaborate with: employees, clients, and third-party vendors. On the one hand, you need to limit their access to data by restricting their rights to move and delete folders, but on the other hand, you need to give departments the full freedom to manage tasks within their areas of responsibility. This challenge can be easily handled with Wrike's folder permissions. You can easily customize user rights for each folder. Let’s take a closer look at this much-awaited feature. Wrike Enterprise now gives an individual user one of two levels of access to a folder: full or limited.  A user with FULL access has exclusive rights to share the folder with others and change the access levels of other users. Your current experience when sharing folders is quite similar to full access, but without the ability to set other users' access levels. LIMITED access restricts users' editing and sharing rights for a certain folder (including all its subfolders and tasks), so that they become limited to Collaborator’s rights. It means that users can still view tasks, add comments, attach files, and mark the task completed in a certain folder, while they won’t be able to edit or manage the tasks and subfolders in it. So why add the “Limited access” option for users if we already have the “Collaborator” license in Wrike? Because these two license options have several significant differences:  Collaborator User with “Limited access” rights Right to create and edit tasks and folders Can’t create or edit any tasks or folders in Wrike Adjustable on the folder level (The admin may allow the user to edit some folders, while providing limited access to others) Premium feature access (e.g., the Gantt chart, dashboard, advanced filters, etc.) No Yes Price and amount Free and unlimited According to the subscription plan This way, in terms of price and functionality, a Collaborator license may be a great option for working with freelancers. At the same time, a User license with the limited access is a better alternative for collaborating with clients because it allows the client to create and maintain a backlog of tasks, and even track the project progress on the Gantt chart, building customized reports with the help of advanced filters.  Extra tip: Consider providing your newcomers with limited access to main folders. It helps you avoid issues with erroneous renaming of tasks/folders and accidental reorganization of folder structures. The same principle is valid for a cross-functional team. If one department just needs to reference the work of the other department (e.g. your marketing and analytical departments), then consider providing them with limited access to other departments' folders. Making it Work for You Here are some insights that should make access rights distribution more efficient: Use case Action required Examples Private folders that shouldn’t be viewed by anyone Don’t share folder with anyone * Personal to-do lists * Top secret business data Folders with tasks that need review, discussion, and tracking without editing task content and folder structure Set limited access to users * Cross-functional projects * Collaboration with third-party vendors  * Newcomers Work in progress tasks and folders that should be managed and edited Provide users with full access to folders * Team members  * Outsourced workforce (consider external user licenses) Setting the Access Level Who exactly is responsible for giving users access rights? All the users with full access rights who share a certain folder can adjust the access rights of other users for this folder and all its subfolders.  What about setting an access level for user groups?  In Wrike Enterprise, access can be set at both the individual user level and the user group level. Just remember that rights are always upgraded, never downgraded. So if a group has full access rights to a folder, then you can’t downgrade a single group member to limited access to that same folder. On the other hand, if the entire group has limited access, a user with full access can upgrade the level of a particular user.   < To safeguard against folders becoming black holes where no one can make any revisions, there will always be one person with full access to a folder. The last user with full access won’t be able to downgrade his or her access rights (or unfollow the folder) until he or she has given full access to at least one other user.   Important Facts to Remember   A users’ access rights are inherited by all subfolders of a particular folder. If a user has a full access rights in a particular folder, all subfolders inherit the same access rights. The same logic works for limited access levels. Remember that you can change users’ access levels to a subfolder from limited to full, but never vice versa. If the access rights of different user groups in a particular folder vary, a user who is a part of these user groups will always inherit the higher access level. For instance, if a folder is shared with two user groups with different access levels, and you are part of both groups, you will always have full access rights. The case with different folders is very similar. If the folder is included in two others that are both shared with you (but you have different access rights for each), you will always inherit full access to this folder.   Hopefully this gives you an idea how Wrike Enterprise can give you more control over data editing rights. Remember that a granular approach to the data-sharing in your company makes collaboration much smoother. To best understand folder permissions, you should take it for a test drive right now.  Drop us a note at https://www.wrike.com/contact-sales/!

Export Your Filtered Task Lists to Excel

Export Your Filtered Task Lists to Excel

We love getting ideas from our users on how we can improve Wrike project management software. This helps us adjust our development roadmap to your needs and deliver the most popular requested project management features first. Recently, our customers who manage big projects have asked about the ability to apply various filters when exporting their tasks from Wrike to Excel. We’ve made that happen, and starting today, you can export task lists, narrowed down by specific criteria, from anywhere within your workspace. For instance, if you have some typical tasks that sometimes repeat, you might want to create a template for them. You can find these tasks by using the appropriate search criteria (1). Then, after you click on the Export button and choose Excel (2), Wrike will ask you whether you want to export all tasks or only the filtered list. Choose the second option (3), and that’s it – you get an .xls spreadsheet with the tasks you need to use as a template in the future. Obviously, this is just one example of the feature’s implementation, and we hope it will be helpful for you and your team, too!

Lucky Winners of the Drawing Among Our Working Habits Survey Participants

A few weeks ago, we encouraged all of you to have your say in our “Working Habits” survey. Thanks to your very active participation, it turned out to be a blast, with 1,000+ responses received. We really appreciate your input, and soon we’ll share the interesting findings about virtual work that you helped us to discover. For instance, we were surprised to learn that as many as 57% of the respondents don’t use Skype, IM apps and social communication tools at work. Did you expect that? We assume that Wrike replaces all these tools for you! ;-) Also, as we promised, we did a drawing of 10 funny, yet useful, prizes (including the awesome grassy lawn charging station that we basically fell in love with ourselves!) among everyone who took part in the survey.  Congrats to the lucky winners: Scott Borowy (Johnson & Wales University), Pam Harshbarger (DynaVox), Stacy Dooley (Cregger Company), German Ricardo Garzon (Ciberix Design Factory), Kristin Kinsey (MadHatter Consulting), Mike Reyher (Cinsay), Colleen Nisbett (Bob’s Red Mill) and three winners who asked us to keep their names private. Wrike’s Santa is already on the way with the prizes! Once again, thanks for participating in our survey! Stay tuned to hear its full results!

.post table td{ padding: 0 5px 5px 5px; } .centercol{ font-size:10px; }(Last edited on May 29, 2009) When you choose the best project management software for your needs, you most likely want the tool to: save you time, release you from routine operations, be easy to use, support collaboration, and keep operations transparent to you. What kind of software will meet your expectations? Web-based collaboration software is the most practical answer. With the help of collaboration software like Wrike, you can easily stay on the same page with your team and run your project successfully. Your employees can instantly contribute to the project plans. You get better control over all operations. Let’s examine why traditional project management tools like Microsoft Project are outdated and how Wrike can help you run your projects more successfully. Wrike MS Project* Price From $9.95/mo for unlimited users and projects $999 per license Upgrades Free Automatic $599 per upgrade Manual System requirements Cross-platform. You only need a Web browser and Internet connection. Microsoft Project Web Access is supported with Internet Explorer 6.x and Internet Explorer 7.x only. Installation No installation required You need the software to be installed on the computer. Training No training required Requires extensive trainings for end-users and administrators. For example, Microsoft Project 2002 Training Courseware consists of 4 modules and 53 lessons. Project Management Features Full-featured. Task management, Time tracking, Gantt charts. Advanced features that bring excessive software complexity. Many of these features you will never use. Visibility You get a clear picture of all operations. You have a limited visibility on every project because your plans are represented in a flat way. Intersection of project parts cannot be reflected in your plans.  Only a straightforward process, which rarely happen in real business, can be managed. Project updates Your employees report their progress online. You save time on routine operations. You have to update the plan manually. First you need to collect reports from dozens of your employees. Then you analyze them and manually enter data in your project plan. This process is very time-consuming, and mistakes often can occur. Sharing of information and tasks  Free On average, the ability to share your plans will cost you between $4,998 and $85,892. The explanations of these calculations are described below. Sharing of information available only with MS Project Server and Microsoft Web-Access. MS Project Server available only through volume licensing; price not quoted.   However, the price may reach up to $52, 894.

A New, Easy Way to Invite Teammates to Task Discussions

Today, we introduce you a new handy collaboration feature that lets you easily draw somebody's attention to your comments in Wrike project management software. Simply add @TeammateName in a comment to a task to invite a colleague to the task discussion! If the task wasn't shared with the teammate you mention after @, it automatically gets shared right after you submit the comment. This way, he or she is able to better understand the context of the comment and actively participate in the discussions in the future. If your colleague replies to the comment via e-mail or in the workspace, Wrike considers this as an interest in the topic, and the person automatically starts following the task and keeping track of the task progress. Now you can be sure the person will be aware of all updates and discussions of this task! Wrike auto-suggests a drop-down based on what you've typed after the @ symbol, so the feature is very easy and intuitive, and it quickly draws the attention of the right teammate directly to your comment. You are very welcome to try this new social communication feature right now and share your experience with us in the comments!

Coordinate Multiple Teams Efficiently with User Groups

Coordinate Multiple Teams Efficiently with User Groups

The bigger the team, the more difficult it is to coordinate. Inspired by suggestions from customers with large deployments, we've introduce user groups as one of the killer highlights in the new Wrike Enterprise plan.  This feature lets admins organize users by project, department or location, allowing you to share data with multiple users effortlessly. Buckle up and we'll give you the quick tour! Where to Manage User Groups If you’re an administrator in Wrike, you'll find the “Groups” tab on your workspace. This is where you will manage users in the account, get detailed overviews of groups and users, invite new users, and add users to groups Default User Groups: Overview of User Types By default, every user in your account is categorized into one of these 5 groups based on the user license: Regular users can access all Wrike features and see other users’ info, such as their time spent on tasks and their scheduled tasks on the timeline, among many other things. External users have the same abilities as regular users, except they can only see the info of users who have shared folders with them. Collaborators can view and complete tasks, add comments and attach files. Just like external users, they can only view the people with whom they share folders and tasks. The Invitation Pending group includes invited users who haven’t signed up yet. Consider resending or canceling the invitation. Ungrouped users are not included in any custom group (see the next section). Custom User Groups: Visualize Your Organization’s Structure While default groups are predefined and identical for every account, custom user groups and subgroups represent the actual employee clusters in your organization. Dividing users into groups is also extremely useful for selective data-sharing, as it helps managers quickly adjust user access to folders and tasks. Note that you can include one user in several groups at once. One of your developers, Emma, may decide to take part in the next volunteer event and thus should be included in the “Developer” and “Volunteers” groups. Best Practices for User Groups 1. “User Group” Thinking  You can save a lot of time and effort if you think in terms of groups, rather than users. Next time you create a project folder, share it with a group, rather than individual users. This way, all your designers can follow the updates to a new brochure. Keep in mind that if you share a folder with a group: The folder becomes shared with all subgroups under the main user group. You won’t be able to unshare the folder from a subgroup or from a person in this group. It’s impossible to unshare a subfolder or any task in this folder from this group. This way, you’re sure that important data cannot be overlooked or mistakenly unshared by any of the group members. 2. One-Click Onboarding Process  In fast-growing companies, new employees join up on a regular basis. This is a challenge for project managers who need to provide newcomers with access to the data they need to hit the ground running. User groups make it easy. As you add each of the new employees to a group (say, new copywriters added to the “Marketing” group), they instantly get access to all the folders shared within that group. Pro tip: Create a special “Welcome” folder with materials for newcomers (guides, official instructions, onboarding documentation, lists of crucial tasks) and share it with the “Newcomers” group. This way, new employees can see it the minute they are added to the “Newcomers” group. 3. Organizational Chart Using groups as a hierarchy is a great way to illustrate your team's structure. Whether you choose to group users by project or location, one look at the group tab is enough to glean insight about the different teams in the account. Overview done! Now go manage your user groups like a boss.

A Show all view in our brains

A "Show all" view in our brains

Thanks to the feedback of Stowe Boyd we decided to explain some features of Wrike. As it's written in that blog post "There doesn't seem to be a way to show all of your tasks at once". The option to show all tasks will surely be there shortly; it is one of those features, which were in beta 1, but were postponed a bit in beta 2 in favor of massive (and absolutely positive) changes in the user interface and usability. It will be there soon, but I personally don't think it's all that supercritical. Why? It's easy. We have thousands (if not more) tasks in mind, but we don't have a "Show all" view in our brains. Because it will be just a big mess. The same thing is true with Wrike. If you have hundreds of tasks entered there and try to show them all on one page, you will hit the performance, both from the computer side (traffic, computation in your browser and on the server) and from the human side (it will be hard for you to find anything in that mess). So what we want users (and us) to have is a smart way to quickly find what they want, not the option to show everything in one big heap. We are on our way to accomplishing that. In beta 1 we had a quick search, and quick filters and beta 2 will have more than that soon.

Wrike Hosts an #HourofCode to Support Computer Science Education Week

Last Friday, Andrew Filev, Wrike CEO and development champion (he was Wrike's first developer, after all!), brought an "Hour of Code" to the people he spends time with every day — Wrike employees. Curious Wrikers joined Andrew to learn the basics of coding a computer game using Code.org's "Hour of Code" online program. What is "Hour of Code"?  As career opportunities in the field of engineering and software development continue to appear at a growing rate, the non-profit Code.org wants everyone, regardless of age, gender, or location, to have the chance to jump on board. "Hour of Code" is a week-long effort to bring the basic principles of engineering to children and adults of any age. They teamed up with Computer Science Education Week and teachers from across the globe to bring the program to over 3 million students in just 5 days. You can see more about their program in this video: Why Wrike Joined the Movement As Wrike's first developer and founding father, Andrew has been passionate about software engineering since he was only 6 years old. After reading about the "Hour of Code" program online, he offered to spend his lunch break teaching curious Wrikers a few basic software engineering principles in one of our bi-weekly "Lunch & Learn" education sessions. Folks from the sales, marketing, and customer success team all joined Andrew in a BYOL (Bring Your Own Laptop) session of introductory coding, errors, and laughter.

Wrike Enterprise: Harnessing the Power of Big Data and Real-Time Collaboration

Today thousands of diverse organizations, including dozens of Fortune 1000 companies, use Wrike to successfully manage their projects and tasks. The beauty of Wrike is that it scales up and down smoothly. In addition to dynamic start-ups that are using the software on the go, there are large enterprises managing thousands of projects in the system. Today thousands of diverse organizations, including dozens of Fortune 1000 companies, use Wrike to successfully manage their projects and tasks. The beauty of Wrike is that it scales up and down smoothly. In addition to dynamic start-ups that are using the software on the go, there are large enterprises managing thousands of projects in the system. Granted, sending out e-mails and scheduling team meetings every time you want a status report is outdated and unproductive in today’s fast-paced environment. It gets exponentially more difficult for large teams that are spread across several cities or even continents. Those large and often distributed teams struggle on a daily basis with challenges, such as the need to coordinate the efforts of multiple teams, for all-around visibility and for granular control over corporate data security. That is why we introduced a plan that delivers the solutions to all these needs – Wrike Enterprise. Above and beyond your favorite Premium features, Wrike Enterprise brings Big Data into the picture, allowing you to instantly get reports on work progress, along with actionable insights. The Performance Chart can help you estimate a realistic project completion date. The Current Status Chart makes it easy to spot the bottlenecks of your project and the tasks that require immediate action. The Baseline Chart comes in handy for identifying how far ahead of or behind the planned schedule you are. The Work Progress Chart helps you keep a finger on the week-to-week work results of each member of your team. Here's a quick overview of the new features we brought to Wrike Enterprise: Progress Reports as Actionable Infographics We store about a million updates each day, and successfully parse all that historical data to help you run your business more efficiently. "How is our progress looking, compared to the original plan? When should we realistically expect to complete the project? Who completed the most tasks?" Answering these questions requires processing thousands of work activity records. Wrike does it in a blink of an eye for you. The new reporting engine gives out valuable business insights on employee performance, realistic completion dates, critical areas that need a manager’s attention, baseline comparisons, and more -- all in the easily digestible format of infographics. This helps managers spot project bottlenecks instantly and provides stakeholders with highly visual performance updates. Our philosophy has always been "make complex things simple." That's why you don't need to spend time configuring these beautiful reports. They are already pre-configured in Wrike Enterprise, for any project you run. Sharing Made Easy via User Groups If you needed to share a project with five people, you'd probably pick them from a list one-by-one. But what if you need to share a folder with 50 or 500 colleagues? To save time, Wrike Enterprise allows you to organize users into a hierarchical directory with user groups.  You can include employees in multiple work groups by project, department, or any other ad hoc basis, and then share the needed data with the whole group in one click. All Schedules Visible on Custom Calendars Managing a larger team means keeping track of a lot of variables when creating a project schedule.  With the help of the custom calendar, you can keep track of your colleagues' vacations, PTO and extra working days, allowing you to avoid schedule overlaps and build more accurate plans.  Corporate Identity in E-mail Notifications When it comes to your corporate identity, consistency matters. That’s why you can now add your company logo, or any other brand image you see fit, to all work updates sent to your employees from Wrike. Branded e-mail notifications now round out your corporate communications. More Data Security with Extended IT Controls Responding to the needs of our customers with 1,000+ seat deployments, we empowered IT with extended security controls. In Wrike, everything works out of the box the day you start your trial, but when you need more controls, the Enterprise plan gives your IT team options to configure which e-mail domains and app integrations employees can access.  Advanced Permissions Exciting news to share: a long-awaited feature - read-only permissions per folder - is already on its way! We will gradually roll it out in the next couple of weeks. This feature allows Wrike Enterprise customers to select read-only access when they are sharing projects.
