Projects

Welcome to CompleteProject!  After successfully logging into the CompleteProject network you will be directed into the projects tab above.  This is your starting point for working with tasks and projects in CompleteProject.  From here you can view a task or project and modify various settings and properties of your custom projects.  You can also use the navigation tabs at the top to move to different areas of the program.
 
As a CompleteProject user you will use this application tab probably more than any other so it's important to really understand it well so that you feel comfortable using the program

Quick Access

2. Quick Access
The quick access toolbar provides a way to quickly access various parts of CompleteProject.  The toolbar contains the following items:
 
  • View as List - shows your project list without the ribbon and task details.  This is useful when you would like to simplify CompleteProject to focus on a specific task or project.
  • Timer - starts a simple timer application which can be used to time tasks.  Timing tasks is a great way to improve your productivity.  Find out more about the Task Timer.
  • Help - help is context-sensitive where possible and directs you to the appropriate online user documentation.

Application Tabs

3. Application Tabs
The application tabs located at the top of the CompleteProject ribbon can be used to navigate to different areas within the application.  Unlike other Windows-based programs which use a ribbon toolbar CompleteProject does not use the ribbon to hide product functionality.  In CompleteProject the tabs represent separate functional areas.

Complete project allows you to navigate through your tasks and projects using three different project views.
