Mission Control makes it so simple for Project Members to record their time!
The timesheets page allows Project Members the abilityto view and manage all of their Actions that are due in a given week, including overdue Actions. The user is able to log both billable and non-billable time, view existing time logs and add comments. A project member may also be given the ability to manage other member’s timesheets.
TimeLogger – Salesforce1 / Browser Side Bar
Project Members can log time using the quick access Time Logger, which is accessible via the Side Bar within the browser or from the Salesforce1 mobile application. You can log time historically, or ‘track’ time whilst you’re working on the Action.
In an ideal world, projects would run smoothly and experience no delays or setbacks. However, in reality, that isn’t typically the case and deliverable requirements often move. Mission Control provides the ability to reschedule (backwards and forwards) Actions relating to a Project.
You can select all Milestones or just specific ones that need rescheduling. You can also choose to filter by Actions with specific ‘Action Status’ values (e.g. only those that are ‘Planned’ or ‘In Progress’).
The Scheduler provides a calendar style view of Action records. It can display Actions for all Projects, or you can filter to a specific Project. It enables you to reschedule and change ownership of any Action, as well as viewing holidays, Salesforce.com Tasks & Events and resource availability. The Scheduler is a very useful tool for resource capacity planning.
A risk log object allows you to manage Risks relating toa Project, a Milestone or a particular Action. The Risk Log allows you to specify the details of a Risk, categorise it and determine the Risk Score based on Impact and Probability.
Risk logs can be added from the project record.
All Risk Logs and a Risk Chart will appear on the Project Overview page.
