[edit] Overview of Project.net

Project.net is a complete, web-based enterprise project management application that helps companies plan, execute and deliver on their entire portfolio of projects.

Project.net is designed to help Global 2000 organizations manage a diverse portfolio of projects involving both internal and external resources spread out over wide geographic areas or a corporate campus. Project.net's customers use the application in many different ways, with the same result: people work more efficiently, costs go down, and things get done.

[edit] Project.net Functionality Access

1. Teams

Document sharing, manage forms, discussion groups, shared calendar, tasks, milestones, project workflow, repeatable processes, deliverables, and other project information.

2. Project Managers

Project planning, project portfolio management, deliverable tracking, email alerts for project changes associated with any project, and project status reports.

With Project.net, you can create reusable templates that configure almost everything for a new project. Using Project.net is easy once you learn how to move around within the application. Project.net is a type of application known as a "virtual workplace". Virtual workplaces are similar to physical, brick and mortar workplaces, except that they exist within computer networks. Project.net allows you to jump rapidly between virtual workspaces, e.g. projects.

[edit] Tools and components of Project.net

Within each Project.net workspace there are several tools that represent file cabinets, wall charts, discussions, folders, index cards, etc. in the physical world.

Finally, there is a set of actions that the user can perform on items within the Project.net application. It incorporates traditional project management tools as schedules and Gantt charts with collaborative tools like Wikis and blogs. Project.net gives you one place to keep everything to do with a project in one place.

Three key components of project in Project.net are its Wiki, the schedule and its blog. A Wiki captures the details of the tasks, the schedule captures the calendar relationship between the tasks and the blog captures the status of those tasks.

[edit] Internationalization and Localization

All the text in the Project.net application can be displayed in different languages. Currently, Project.net Inc. only provides an English version, but customers can provide translations to other languages.

Furthermore, all areas of the application are fully localized. This means that all dates, times, numbers, currencies, and calendars are displayed according to the user's selected locale.

Notifications will be sent using the internationalization and localization preferences of the recipient.

To support these modifications, the following properties have to be specified during registration:

[edit] Preferred Language

This option provides a selection of languages defined in the current application. The language selected here is used when sending notifications. The notification is sent using the translation for the specified language.

[edit] Locale

The Locale option provides a selection of locales that determine how dates, times, numbers, and currencies are entered and displayed.

[edit] Time Zone

The Timezone option provides a selection of time zones that determine how dates and times are calculated. All dates and times are entered based on the selected time zone.

[edit] Effects on all Modules

In the Login process, the user selects the language that is to be displayed for the Project.net application. Due to this selection,

1. The whole application including help, functions, error messages, and any application text is shown in the specified language.

2. The data items entered will not be translated and therefore are displayed as entered notwithstanding the language selected.

[edit] Effects to the Calendar Module

1. As per the selection of the time zone and locale, the following items are displayed in the mode appropriate to the current user settings.

2. The calendar will be displayed based on the user's locale, e.g. the week will start with Monday in Europe and with Sunday in the USA.

3. The calendar is completely tokenized, so the days as well as the months will be displayed in the language selected by the user.

4. In a modification process of a meeting, the time zone of the locale of the current user will be displayed.

5. Meeting notifications will include the date and time in the format set by the receiver.
