This plug-in synchronizes information between your 2-plan Desktop project manager's software and the 2-plan Team online collaboration PM tool. Although each application can be used independently, the Team Connector transforms your 2-plan Desktop into a command software to better manage your teams online. Create work packages and milestones in 2-plan Desktop to share with your project teams by transferring these project objects to the 2-plan Team server. Your project teams will then create tasks, enter time spent, and estimate time remaining as the project progresses. Simply 'connect' anytime and receive the latest updates from your teams right into your 2-plan Desktop project plans. Works well for those who value team planning!
Ever wondered what separates an ordinary project from a great project? It's the baseline. Enter a baseline for your project and monitor planned values against actual values. A baseline provides you a way to recognize those portions of the project that are on track and identify which parts may need your additional focus. The Baselining plug-in includes insightful reporting which compares the effort, duration, start date, finish date and type of tracking method for each work package. This simplified monitoring tool is a must-have for the most skillful project managers.
Project Mind Map Tools
Mind maps provide focus and foster creativity. Great for idea generation, simplifying complexity, and rapid template creation! This plug-in comes with four (4) major functional views that seamlessly integrate mind map objects with project objects and vice-versa. The Milestone Planner (1) allows you to create a new project plan based on prior project objects via drag-and-drop through this brainstorming and template-making tool. It turns prior linear project objects into radial mind map objects then back to new linear project objects. The MindMap Viewer (2) shows a selected mind map and gives you the capability to edit this or add new ideas. The Team SetUp (3) is for your team formation and team member familiarization needs. Finally, the Work Breakdown Structure (4) is your mind mapping workhorse for creating your WBS from a radial, focused approach. Bounce WBS ideas back and forth with your teams. Assign a person, team, role or material resource per work package. Set mind map icons and more!
