I’ve moved and I decided to take a role running the labs of a smaller, family owned company. We’re quite small compared to most places I’ve worked.
My request for ideas: currently we track projects in the lab with an excel spreadsheet. It’s OK, and we have it in a location on our internal network where people like my Tech Service Director can access it just to see what’s on the list. But, as none of us here are Excel gurus, its quite simplistic. It is not set up, for example, to really have a good place to enter updates on the project status, attach, well, attachments of various types (photos, documents, etc.)
I’m looking for a very simple project manager. I want to be able to easily enter and update project titles, project goals, priority, who’s assigned to the project,a project plan/approach, updates on a daily or weekly basis, projected timing, and simple attachments. I’d like to have it provide and overview page of the project list and status. It’s needs to be simple enough to use that a couple of my senior computer tech challenged chemists can easily use it (otherwise they simply won’t.)
Any suggestions? Thanks.
