New Web Project Management Software Release Makes Linking Interrelated Tasks Easier Than Ever

LA HABRA, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - Jan. 17, 2011) - The latest version of web project management software ProjectManager.com promises new capabilities in easily linking multiple tasks together.

Project Manager Online Ltd. has just announced the latest release of their web based project management software, ProjectManager.com. With this latest release, project managers can quickly and easily tie multiple interrelated tasks together with the click of the mouse.

"When the project manager is putting that project schedule together in the early stages, the last thing they need is to have to migrate through a lot of drop down menus," states Jason Westland, president and CEO of Project Manager Online Ltd. "By giving them the ability to create multiple task interdependencies on the fly by just highlighting tasks and clicking to connect them, we've made interrelating the tasks easier than even Microsoft Project."

Indeed, with this new release, all the project manager needs to do is highlight all the tasks that will be interrelated and click the 'Link' button to instantly create linked tasks. Making the act of linking tasks this easy gives the project manager instant views into the affects that linking the tasks will have on the overall project critical path. This way, the project manager can 'try out' scenarios and undo changes that will negatively impact the project schedule. They can quickly see the issues that the interdependent tasks will create and bring them to the team's and customer's attention for immediate review and discussion.

"Sometimes linking tasks is the right thing to do and sometimes it will cause the project problems," says Westland. "Finding that out quickly and easily with the features of this new release allows the project manager to test scenarios for the linked tasks to see if it will adversely affect the overall project timeline. Knowing quickly that those issues will exist allows for the entire team to make some quick decisions on resource allocation and task overlaps before it's too late."

ProjectManager.com has grown significantly in popularity with more than 20% growth in the past year. The largest growth sector has been in the small to medium sized business niche. That sector has seen 30% growth worldwide, citing cost and ease of use as primary reasons for making the switch. Often those switches are from Microsoft Project – which has long been the leader in the project management software industry.

ProjectManager.com offers full featured import and export capability with MS Project making it easy to still share files with customers, team members, and executive management who aren't quite ready to make the jump to ProjectManager.com.

Project Manager Online is offering their web project management software product as a free thirty day trial for users to test out its features. Project managers can test drive it on a current project and even get their entire team onboard to try out all of the collaboration features for a month.
