Projectfork is the most popular Joomla project management extension.
In this tutorial, we're going to give you step-by-step directions on how to use Projectfork. We're going to create a project, add milestones to the project, add to-do tasks and do much more.
Step 1: Download and install
Step 2: Create a new project
Projects play a central role in Projectfork. Everything you do is directly related to a project and most features are not accessible if you do not have a project selected as a workspace. So the first thing you want to do after installing Projectfork is to create a project.
Step 3: Enter project details
Step 4: Invite people
Note: Projectfork uses the same user list as Joomla. If someone joins your site or is entered from the Joomla user administration they will appear in the list Projectfork list. If you've added the member via Projectfork, they will automatically be added to your Joomla users.
Step 5: Project settings
Step 6: Add a task
A workspace defines your current focus or area of activity, meaning that everything you do right now will be associated with the project you have selected. Making sure you are in the correct workspace is a good habit to develop. Otherwise you'll find yourself adding a long list of tasks to the wrong project!
Step 7: Add a milestone
You could start adding tasks into "Uncategorized" immediately if you want. But we're going to assume you have a complicated project with several milestones. You can think of milestones as categories for grouping tasks in your to-do list. It's far easier to do this if you have the milestones entered first.
For the illustration, say you are planning on going after a major account and you want to make sure you follow all the proper procedures.
Here are some milestones you might use:
Step 8: Add a task to the milestone
Step 9: Reorder for easy reading
Here's what the project milestones and tasks look like. They will list alphabetically unless you change the order.
You can rearrange the order by changing the order numbers and saving your changes by clicking "Reorder" on the menu.
Reordering the milestones does not reorder the tasks associated with them. they have their own numbers that can be changed in the same way. Fine tun your todo lists by changing the numbers on the tasks. Now you're ready to move on to the other aspects of Projectfork.
