Traction TeamPage 5.1: Social Software, Meet Project Management

Traction TeamPage Release 5.1 makes it easy for individuals to see their own action plans, the status of shared projects, team workload, individual progress, and team progress toward common goals – all within the context of the TeamPage collaboration and communication platform where the planned work can also be managed an done.

One click can add a task tag to any Traction page, comment, status post or paragraph, with automatic rollup of actions by person, date, milestone or project. Projects can be used to collect a set of tasks and milestones to organize activities by date or common goal. This clear and simple model is focused on the lightweight coordination of individual and team actions that drive every business activity – from the simplest to the most complex, see Action Tracking videos.
