As companies become increasingly globalized and remote, it's more important than ever to have a robust project management tool to help teams stay on track and collaborate effectively. One such tool is Wrike, a cloud-based project management platform that can be used to help teams plan, manage, and track projects from start to finish. In this blog post, we'll explore how to use Wrike to collaborate with your team and ensure that projects are completed on time and to a high standard.
1. Start by Setting Up Your Account
To get started with Wrike, you'll need to set up an account. Wrike has various subscriptions to choose from. Not sure which one to choose? Book a consultation with me to explore the needs of your team/organization and come to a decision on the subscription level that is best for your team. Once you've signed up, I will work with you to create a workspace that makes sense for your business.
2. Use the Dashboard to Stay on Top of Progress
Wrike's dashboard is a powerful capability that can help you stay on top of your projects and tasks. The dashboard provides an overview of all your projects, including their status, due dates, and progress. You can use the dashboard to quickly see which tasks are overdue, which ones are in progress, and which ones have been completed. You can also use the dashboard to prioritize tasks and make sure that everyone on your team is working on the most important tasks first.
3. Use Task Management to Stay Organized
Wrike's task management capabilities are designed to help you stay organized and on track. You can create tasks and subtasks, assign them to team members, and set due dates and priorities. You can also use tags and custom fields to categorize tasks and make them easier to find later. Additionally, you can attach files and comments to tasks to provide additional context and information.
4. Collaborate with Your Team in Real-Time
One of the key benefits of Wrike is that it allows you to collaborate with your team in real-time. You can use the platform's messaging tools to communicate with team members, share files and documents, and provide feedback on tasks and projects. You can also use the platform's commenting tools to leave feedback and suggestions on individual tasks and subtasks.
5. Use Reports to Monitor Progress
Wrike's reports allow you to monitor progress and identify potential bottlenecks in your projects. You can generate reports on a range of metrics, including task completion rates, time spent on tasks, and team performance. These reports can help you identify areas where your team is struggling and make adjustments to improve performance.
Wrike is a powerful project management tool that can help you collaborate with your team and ensure that projects are completed on time and to a high standard. By setting up your account, using the dashboard, task management tools, and collaborating with your team in real-time, and using reports to monitor progress, you can stay on top of your projects and ensure that they are completed successfully.
