Breakdown of core features
One of the core views of Zenkit Projects, the Gantt chart, enables teams and project managers to precisely track and manage any project’s schedule, resources, and people in a more classic project management method. Users can get the project’s schedule overview and quickly make adjustments with intuitive drag and drop controls. Additionally, they can schedule and monitor complex projects on a clear timeline, with features like lag and lead, milestones, critical path, and task dependencies.
Mind Map allows users to visualize team ideas and creativity in a structured and stylish layout. With Zenkit, users can create mind maps, then use them immediately for their projects, tasks, and subtasks. Users can also assign team members without converting or importing anything.
Aside from the different view options, Zenkit Projects also provides global Kanban boards, global calendars, and global lists that bring tasks from all projects together. These features give users a holistic overview of one’s to-dos and helps them stay organized regardless of the number of projects.
With the platform’s integrated resource management, users can see each team member’s assigned workload. Managers can set up the max workload per day per user, and the system automatically shows whether there are free capabilities or shortcomings in the resource planning every day. The software enables users to find the optimal schedule across all the projects and improves the organization’s efficiency.
