When you start a big project, a good organization is one of the key elements that can make it a success, especially when you work with more people. In that case, you need a tool that's accessible for everyone, that lets all the project members keep track of all current tasks, and that also provides the team with handy tools to share workload and exchange messages. That tool does exist, and it's called DeskAway.
With DeskAway you can easily manage important projects that involve a group of people, include many different tasks and subtasks, and will require quite long period of time to complete. DeskAway lets you keep track of every detail in the project though a clearly designed interface with different tabs for each section: milestones, to-do list, shared files and docs, reports, time sheets and messages.
DeskAway also features various ways to keep track of the project's development: you can write a blog to jot down your progress, check the calendar for upcoming tasks and review the team's overall performance in colorful charts. The website is very intuitive. It'll hardly take you a few minutes to get everything up and running, but if you get stuck at some point, you can always watch one of DeskAway's video tutorials.
DeskAway is similar to ActiveCollab, GoPlan or BaseCamp, other online project management tools. In fact, if you've been already using the latter, you'll be able to import your data automatically. It offers several pricing plans that go from a free account – with some limitations regarding the number of projects and users you can have – to $99/month for unlimited users, projects and templates, as well as 25 GB of free storage space.
