A project roadmap is a timeline of your project. Planning how to archive your goal, you cut down a big amount of work into smaller chunks and assign estimated deadlines to these segments. Thus, you move from a general view to something particular and tangible – from understanding a general idea to a closer look at practice.
Bitrix24 can help with…
The platform offers for free not just a plain list of tasks, but a fully interactive and agile picture. In several formats actually. Bitrix24 has a Gantt chart view with stretchy task bars and smart subtasks, task sequences and task dependencies. It is a great help with deadline planning and project outline. Kandan boards, on the other hand, are beneficial for progress tracking. Calendars also could be used as project roadmaps, since all events and task deadlines are presented there.
An important issue is a security and privacy. Bitrix24 has so flexible access rights that several teams can work on the same account without trouble. Every user can organize private Gantt charts, Kanban boards and calendars for themselves. Teams can have shared group facilities and work together. And there are charts, boards and calendars for ‘public’, company-wide usage.
You can plan in Bitrix24 your projects AND you can get them done in the very same place. Bitrix24 has a generous range of instruments assisting users’ performance. If you speak just about the tasks, there are autofocus mode, reminders, checklists, tools for tracking time spent on each task (holidays and weekends can be excluded).
