Microsoft SharePoint is a perfect solution for project management, but most companies are either unaware or don't understand the whole range of benefits it presents.
Project sites are used to store and manage project-related documentation and to capture tasks and assign them to people in your organization. Project team events are tracked on a common calendar. The SharePoint project site template is designed to help you plan the work schedule, collect project files and documents, and collaborate with your teammates. As a security element, you can set unique permissions for users to access your project site, and the level of access they have on your site.
When planning a project, the first step is to add tasks and assign them to team members. With a SharePoint team site, you can manage projects and assign tasks to people by adding task lists and calendars. Apart from being able to work with your task list on Microsoft Project or Microsoft Excel, you can set up a timeline of tasks added and change the appearance of the timeline. Once you start working on your project, you can view, upload and remove project documents or files if needed. The Project Summary web part gives you a high-level view of your project tasks and events.
