A look at Liquid Office’s mobile app for Feng Office: Liquid Notes

11/21/2014

 

Mobile project management requires a good understanding of what needs to be done, when it needs to be done and how one’s time can be organized in the best possible manner to achieve this. The “best possible manner” is a very personal statement that will fit each individual differently. For some, “best” refers to spending as much time as possible with family while for others, it means maximizing profits in the work space. As different as these views might sound, they both share the same goal: to use working time as efficiently as possible!
 
Mobile project management raises efficiency by using otherwise idle time productively; above all time during our daily commute, like waiting at the bus station, at the doctor’s office or even when an emergency rises and you are not in the office.
 
For people that are in constant idea process, there is nothing worse than having a bright idea but nowhere to write it down, structure it and put it into the right context. Nowadays, at least one mobile device is always at hand. With simple functionality, such as the ability to dictate, mobile devices turn into idea savers which save you a great deal of money and frustration.

Liquid Office, our developing partner from Austria, has created Liquid Notes, an application 100% compatible with Feng Office that accomplishes all of the above into one useful app.
 
Liquid Notes helps you manage your Feng Office notes on your mobile, and can be downloaded for both Android and iOS users.
Here are some of the features of Liquid Office:

  • The ability to create new notes wherever you are, without the hassle of having to wait for a computer.
  • Read, sort and filter your existing notes, in case you need information in an emergency situation where waiting to get to the office is simply not an option.
  • Classify new and existing notes to specific workspaces, to maintain organization within your Feng Office account.
  • Delete notes you no longer need right from your mobile device with just one simple finger swipe.

What’s in future for Liquid Office?

Liquid Office is planning to come up with additional apps in the Liquid Office Suite by the summer of 2015.
 
They are also working in parallel on a completely refreshed synchronization architecture, which will allow for off-line, as well as real-time synchronization. Real-time synchronization will answer the big question of document management, namely whose changes are to be taken over. Real-time synching also allows for even smoother work-flows in the future.

New and improved Gantt Chart!

07/04/2014

 
Hi Everyone!
 

We are so eager to share some really exciting news with you:
The Gantt Chart, a tool that helps you manage your schedule on a day-to-day basis, has been completely redesigned!

 

 

Not only has it been redesigned to be much more appealing to the eye, but also so that it can have a more intuitive user interface, allowing you to make changes without having to edit each task individually from the Full-Task Edit form.

 

The intuitive drag-and-drop interface of the Gantt Chart allows the end users to easily change start/end time and duration of tasks, link tasks to each other, and set task completeness with just a few clicks.

 

Changing the start/end date and duration of a task:

Simply click on either end of the task, and drag the task to the date and time you wish to change it to.

 

 

Changing the progress of a task:

Click on the grey triangle button (shown above), and drag it to show how much progress you have made on the task. If this button is dragged to the end of the task, it will change its status to Completed.

 

 

Setting Task Dependencies:

Simply click on the round button that shows up at the end of the task, and drag it to the next task you want to link it to. This way, you will be setting up a dependency with these two tasks.

 

 

 

That is not all!! You can also change the zoom level to have a wider perspective of everything:

 

Daily:

Weekly:

Monthly:

Yearly:

 

Last but not least, Exportation!

In case you need to include this Gantt Chart in a report or share it with colleagues of yours or other stakeholders, you can also export it to PDF and PNG formats respectively.

 
We hope you enjoy this new version of the Gantt Chart, and remember to follow us on Facebook to keep updated on the new improvements that will be arriving very soon!!
