What is project management automation?
It is a technological method for improving the efficiency of processes, requiring almost no human assistance and allowing you to complete basic project management tasks without personal intervention.
Why should I automate my project management?
By automating project management, you offload routine, time-consuming, administrative work from your employees so that they can concentrate on more valuable tasks. Automation also reduces the human element in the processes, which allows for more predictable work results.
Can automation replace humans in project management?
Not fully and not in the near future. Although automation makes it possible to perform many tasks more efficiently than people can, project management involves certain elements of human input that software can’t assess that easily. It can’t assess team morale or help individuals to improve their weaknesses. Automation is great for streamlining routine tasks and processes to free up time for more important ones, which results in greater efficiency overall. It also allows project managers to concentrate on improving their skills in strategy development, conflict resolution, digital literacy, stakeholder management, and not wasting time on minor tasks that can easily be automated.
How do I create relationships and dependencies between tasks via workflows?
You will have to select the required task and fill in the 'Next Steps' section on the platform, namely the conditions for the 'On Success', 'On Failure' and 'On Time Out' transitions, indicating the necessary task and describing the conditions.
Can I see how much time was spent on a project?
Yes, you can see it through the time spent on workflows related to the project. We have a dashboard where you can see the time and date when the workflow was started. The startup parameters of the workflow and its execution history show the entire history of executed tasks and transitions.
What is the difference between workflow automation and project management automation?
The main differences between workflow and project management automation are in their durations, impact, and roles. Projects are temporary, usually one-time affairs, whereas workflows are functional, repetitive components of a business process. Workflows can be stand-alone processes like appointment scheduling, or they can run a business and impact all aspects of it while transcending whole departments and projects. The role of project management is to plan, oversee, and direct tasks; workflows, on the other hand, are intended to connect those tasks. Basically, workflows make project management run smoothly from one stage to the next.
