Features Of SharePoint For Project Management

Microsoft SharePoint can be configured to fulfil a range of project management requirements.

At its very simplest, SharePoint can be designed to offer configurable lists relating to tasks or projects. Relevant parties can then complete these ‘to do’ lists, with others involved in those projects then being notified by email as milestones are complete.

But beyond this, there’s plenty more potential and functionality for using SharePoint for project management, with multiple workflows, communication streams and stakeholders.

For longer-term or more in-depth projects, Akita can develop SharePoint team sites. These can be configured to the needs of the project and can be set to be accessed by users both in and outside of an organisation.

Features of a team site can include an area for collaborating on documents, a display of upcoming deadlines, news on the latest developments on that project, tasks to be undertaken broken down by individuals, ‘how to’ guides and forums to discuss project stages, and status graphs to show overall progress on the project.

And using SharePoint Online, teams can access projects from any device and on-the-go – perfect for flexible working.

Advanced Project Management Features

Beyond team sites, SharePoint can also be configured to be a powerful tool specifically for busy project managers.

To ensure all parties run to schedule, reporting and automatic email updates can be setup. These can provide periodic reminders about a project, or alert users of imminent deadlines.

SharePoint can also be used to create Gantt charts, detailing the progress of various streams of a project – or even multiple projects – with automatic updating as tasks move through to completion.

 

Wider Microsoft 365 Integration

With the ability to expand SharePoint’s capabilities for project management further through the integration of Microsoft Projects or approved third-party apps, your project management solution can soon rival specialist project management software for a fraction of the cost.

Plus through integrating Sharepoint with Microsoft Teams, project managers can also manage all communications linked to their projects from a single location. This then provides a completely unified communication solution.
