Project KickStart Pro 5 brings project management to ACT!
Have you been looking for an easy-to-use project management program that seamlessly integrates with ACT!? If so, Project KickStart is what you need. And now it links with ACT!.
Over 5,000 ACT! users are now using Project Kickstart to plan their projects and transfer their data to ACT!
"Project KickStart has been a part of the Muskus Management profile since its inception. The service at Project KickStart is excellent and my clients love the versatility of the product.
It's fast and easy to plan any project.
Project KickStart's 8-step "planning icons" guide you to:
Schedule your plan with our Gantt chart
Project KickStart's easy-to-use Gantt chart provides a timeline for each task in your schedule. You can adjust the schedule. Mark tasks “done” for a quick status report.
Print reports, including the Gantt chart, and share them with team members, management, clients and other stakeholders. Include Project KickStart reports in budgets and proposals. Or, save as HTML and post to your Web site.
When you're done, you can instantly transfer your plan to ACT!
With a click of the mouse, you'll find your project's tasks, due dates and assignments in three places in ACT!.
The link from Project KickStart to ACT! is a "smart" link. If you bring in the same project again, the program will ask you if you want to update the information about the tasks already in. It will update done status, dates, assignments. And, best of all, you won't lose your history working on the project in ACT!.
The Calendar display in ACT! is also significantly improved. Tasks are brought in as timeless, taking up less space in the ACT! Calendar and letting users do their project work and their other work more easily.
Once you export the tasks you have assigned in Project KickStart into your ACT!' database, they turn into ACT!' activities. Since you have the option to take advantage of the assignment of roles or certain tasks to either users or contacts in the ACT! database, you can then manage the activities from within ACT!
You can use ACT! to:
Import Contacts and Users from ACT!
Project KickStart imports ACT! Contacts and Users (to use as resources.) You don't have to retype the names of people who will be involved with your project. And when you export your tasks, ACT! will recognize who the Contacts and Users are!
Integration with Microsoft Office
Project KickStart seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Outlook, Project, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. This enhances the usability of these popular applications and helps you communicate your plan to everyone on your project team.
