It can be difficult to keep track and monitor multiple projects at a time so ProjectLibre is here to help you with that task. It is a program developed by The ProjectLibre community to assist users with tracking the progress of their projects.
ProjectLibre has a neat and flexible interface that will allow you to sort your projects and activities. When you run the program, you will see an empty table or grid on the left side of the window. This is where you can list all your ongoing projects as well as indicate their start date and supposed duration. There are other details about the tasks that you can also add on the rows and columns such as the names of the people who are involved in the project. Another helpful feat is that ProjectLibre will allow you to group projects together and add subtasks. This will allow you to create dependent projects, which are tasks that cannot be started unless a prerequisite project is already done. You can indicate a project’s dependency on the Predecessor’s column by typing the row number of the task that is required to be finished first. With this feature, tracking the course of your project is made easy and less complicated.
Introducing the Gantt Chart
As you input these pieces of information on the table, you will notice that the chart on the right side of the window will reflect the changes you made. ProjectLibre makes use of a Gantt chart, which simply is a bar graph that is designed mainly for the purpose of keeping projects in check. Its functions serve best for ProjectLibre, whose aim is to monitor the progress of your many different tasks. It will show you the percentage of completion of each project. The Gantt chart is also able to show you the relationship between projects, which works ideally for ProjectLibre’s project dependency function. Using a bar graph is a smart move because it is straightforward with its data and therefore, very easy to understand. On the vertical path of the chart is where all your projects are listed while the horizontal plane above shows the dates. The bars will then stretch out on the table according to the percentage of its completion and when such is achieved.
Finish tasks on time
It is not just about continuously monitoring your projects and knowing how much you have already achieved. This program will also make sure that you are sticking to your schedule. Remember that you have set a start date and duration for your projects. You can check this on the Critical tasks bar located on top of your charts. All projects that are in danger of being delayed or are about to exceed the duration or deadline you have set. I think that users will greatly appreciate this feat. The delay can affect the status of other pending projects and a fair warning will help people sort their priorities.
Convenient and reliable
ProjectLibre is a big help to users who are juggling multiple projects at once. It has a neat-looking interface that makes it easy to understand and determine the status of your tasks with just one look.
