real time collaborative platform
« on: May 24, 2015, 06:28:33 AM »
hello!

My projects often need a flowchart, a timeline chart, addition of comments, addition of discussion, email alerts, file sharing, etc

We use sharepoint, which is supposedly very powerful, but the main problem I see with it is that there is not a single page to display the projects and edit it or have a discussion about each of its steps

you have to download the file, view it, and edit it, and then upload it, which is very cumbersome

isn't there a platform where it will have all the possible features and it will be web-based, not having to open locally files?

thanks!

You know, of course, that MS Project Server has now been shoe-horned into is now an add-in to Sharepoint, right? Is that what you are using?

can I see what you mean exactly it's add-in to Sharepoint?
can I view and edit stuff online?

There are numerous videos online that might give you more info, such as this one or this one. Project Server runs inside Sharepoint, you create a new web app for it and you have Sharepoint facilities available. I'm not a Project or Project Server user so I can't comment on the comparative functionality, but I would hope that much of the work could be done in the Sharepoint interface.

mmm I didn't see in those videos what I had in mind:
an online flowchart editor with an attached gantt chart editor

with ability to add comments in each step
