4. Does ProofHub’s calendar view support a shared team calendar and online Calendar?

ProofHub’s calendar can easily be used to add appointments and organize all tasks, milestones, and events in a single place. Organize all of your events, tasks, and milestones in one spot. Automatic reminders for events and milestones, as well as recurring events and chores, can help you stay on top of your schedule. Using a single project calendar, you can see all calendar data from all projects in one spot.

Along with setting up events, milestones, creating recurring tasks, using multiple calendar views, getting a bird’s eye view of all calendars, and more.

5. Can ProofHub be used for time tracking and time management?

ProofHub timesheets enable you to keep track of your team’s performance by keeping track of all time entries committed to their duties. These timesheets can also be exported for invoicing or billing purposes.

You can start a timer on various jobs and timesheets with multiple timers. You can see which timers are now active and which are inactive. The All time tab is located under the Everything section and allows you to view time entries logged by all users across all projects from the beginning of the current month to the present day. The time entries will be categorized by project by default. 

With ProofHub users can add timesheets, make time estimates, track time manually or with timers, export timesheets, archive them, create time reports, and bring all time data under a common roof.

6. Is it possible to visualize projects in Gantt charts with ProofHub?

In ProofHub, Gantt charts are a simple method to plan projects and track their progress in real time. They provide important information such as who is responsible for what, the duration of tasks, and overlapping project activities. Gant charts are a great way to map out a plan, modify existing schedules, and visualize tasks in a timeline view. 

In Gantt, you can readily determine which tasks are interdependent and schedule them so that they don’t impede overall development and team members are held equally accountable.

7. How can I see a bird’s eye view of a project in ProofHub?

An overview of a project provides a bird’s eye view of all the activities that are taking place. Tasks, events, and milestones, as well as discussions, files, notes, and timesheets, can all be viewed by the team.

The project’s progress graph is also available in the overview. With two independent lines, the progress chart shows completed tasks and total tasks. This allows users to see if the work is progressing slowly or if there is any kind of improper allocation of work within the team. To see the project’s progress graph, simply click on the small graph icon.

8. How can I extract board contents(name, status) in excel CSV format?

Users can download the tasks and the task list data in CSV format from the task section for individual projects. Task lists can be exported in CSV format.
