Registration is essential for a product. As Freedcamp is a web-based tool, your operating dashboard will only show up once you register with your credentials. Basic registration and social connect are both available.
A calendar is paramount to an organization’s structure. Deadlines, invoice dates, assignments are all handled through an intuitive calendar which is super easy to use.
Just get started on your project, click on the calendar and events by date and time. Multiple events and even to-do lists can be made. These can then be assigned to members/employees, along with an end date. You can find these under “Task List”
An organization or even a solopreneur needs to keep a good balance between the local system and the cloud. You can upload and share files with multiple people within Freedcamp. You can also directly upload files within groups.
Task management will and should be one of the top priorities in your enterprise. Like a well oiled machine, all parts need to do their job well and that’s why work needs to be assigned to them. You can do this easily by assigning tasks , their deadlines and assign it to a group or a person instantly. The software also reminds you closer to the due date!
Communication is key when collaborating with external or internal forces. Ditch the traditional email and focus all your energy on creating groups and chatting instantly with them. Just click on “Discussions” in your project and let this flow guide the way.
This is one of the best features that this project management software offers. If you are handling multiple clients at the same time, there is absolutely no need to go the paper route at all. Just input all your details including price, PO number, Tax, detailed description of work entailed and generate easy invoices every time! No more hassles at all!
