Overall Satisfaction with Teamwork Projects

We use Teamwork in the Engineering dept to help manage and organize the multiple concurrent projects we have going at any one time. It helps each engineer keep track of the tasks requiring attention, with daily reminders of those coming due. This helps keep projects moving forward and prevents tasks from being forgotten.
  • It is very easy to add new tasks in Teamwork, and to assign responsibility and dates.
  • Created tasks, especially those with dates, automatically send out daily reminders to the responsible individual(s).
  • Tasks can be categorized to help those managing the project to track status.
  • It is simple for users to "check off" completed tasks, and overdue tasks are highlighted.
  • There seems to be no provision for entering company-specific non-working days, nor are holidays or weeekends recognized when dependent tasks get automatically adjusted
  • Managing task interdependencies is more difficult than it should be.
  • Because of the above, using Teamwork to plan and preview project timelines in a flexible way is very difficult.
  • Teamwork helps keep projects moving, which means they are more likely to be on time and thus provide new income.
Teamwork has better interactive capabilities and document access than MS Project
If a group is tracking tasks for courrently active projects, Teamwork can be a great help in both assuring tasks are covered and in assessing status (what is done and what still needs to be done).
If you wish to play with project schedules to see how timelines shift as task dates are changed, then Teamwork may not be for you.
