One ability that sets Zoho Projects apart from some of the other on-demand software available for managing projects is that the program allows users to track task dependencies. The program also boasts discussion forums, allowing team members to easily communicate with one another. Like Central Desktop, documents can be uploaded with ease so that all team members can review and suggest changes.
Alerts can be delivered to team members either through Email or RSS Feeds. This allows users to follow discussions and stay up to date without having to sign into the program.
Another feature Zoho Projects offers is the ability to track time and record actual hours against estimated hours spent upon tasks. From tracked hours, time sheets, expense reports and invoices are easily created.
The on line calendar can be shared with everyone in the team and will track meetings, events, appointments, deadlines and anything else that a project team member would wish to track. It is easy to use, easy to share and can be used for automatic reminders.
Zoho Projects also produces a Gantt Chart report, much like Microsoft Project.
The program offers documentation and support through forums and blogs.
