Tasks and Milestones
PM3 lets Project Managers take the agreed top-down milestone plan and break it down into detailed tasks in a Gantt Chart for team scheduling. As with parent milestones, the tasks are RAG coded to illustrate their delivery status. PM3 also provides the means to assign tasks to team members and track their completion status to aid team collaboration. All plans in PM3 can be exported to, and from, Microsoft Project.
An Action is anything that you want to keep track of and manage, but which you don’t need to appear in a Milestone Plan or Gantt Chart (for example actions from meetings, follow-ups on mitigation actions for risk or issues, actions needed to realize benefits, Change Requests, etc). PM3 lets you manage Action lists and automatically notifies the Action Owner of any changes to their Actions.
